Milk Glass Silhouette Plate
Vintage milk glass makes a wonderful canvas for crafting, and this plate is fashionable and adorable! With a simple image, you can create a sweet vintage home decor craft that would look great hanging on your wall.

To make this project, all you need is a nice looking silhouette, some ribbon, Mod Podge, and a milk glass plate. I got my silhouette from The Graphics Fairy website. Milk glass plates can be found fairly easily at any antique mall or flea market.
Once I printed out the silhouette, I touched up the lighter parts with a Sharpie black pen. Because I have an ink-jet printer, I had to pay a visit to Staples to copy my silhouette on their laser copier. Otherwise, the ink would smear when I used decoupage medium on it. I also adjusted the size a bit to fit my plate.
Next I carefully cut out the silhouette image. I knew the cat whiskers were going to be too difficult for me to cut out, so I didn't even try (I added them after the fact with a Sharpie pen). I applied Mod Podge to the back of the cut out silhouette, which I had actually divided into three pieces (the two girls and the cat), then placed them on the plate and rolled over them with a brayer to get the image firmly in place. I added a topcoat of Mod Podge on the silhouette image, keeping close to the edges of the image and cleaning up the excess with a wet paper towel.
- The last step is threading a ribbon through the edges of the plate and tying a bow.
