If you’d like a simple tutorial for hanging your plates cheaply and easily, this could be the one for you.

You can use ribbon or strong twine. If the ribbon is a feature, you can make it longer so it shows, or if you use twine, make it shorter so it is hidden behind the plate. It’s up to you! Have a look at the video and see if you like this idea.

You’ll Need

  • Black felt, or another color
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon

Step-By-Step Instructions

  • Cut 2 squares of felt measuring 1 inch.
  • Cut the ribbon for your hanger.
  • Dot glue on the back of the plate on the left and the right.
  • Place one end of the ribbon into the glue on one side.
  • Press one piece of felt onto the ribbon on top of the glue.
  • Repeat with the other side.
  • Leave to dry for the time recommended in your hot glue gun instructions.
  • Test adhesion by pulling on the ribbon, as if it’s hanging.
  • Hang it on a nail or hook.
