Practical Scrappers Frugal Finds: Paper Plates

Today over at Practical Scrappers, the ladies are showing us some creative ways to use paper plates in the ever popular, Frugal Finds feature!

I'm a self-acknowledged cheap-o so if I can find a use for something I already have in the house or can easily pick up at a dollar store, I'm excited.  Luckily for me, I found (and saved) a large stack of paper plates  from our move!

My project is VERY easy and could be revamped for any holiday. How cute would a Christmas wreath be wrapped in garland?!

Since the leaves are finally turning here in North Carolina, I went with a fall theme for this simple project.  First, I cut out the center of a paper plate, just leaving the outer ring.  Then, I wrapped and taped (on the back) twine all the way around.  Because the ridge of the plate is curved, it gave the illusion that my wreath was round!  Then, I hot glued the buttons, foliage, and sentiment.  Easy peasy.

Now hop on over to Practical Scrappers to see the other creative ways the ladies used their Frugal Find, paper plates :-)


  1. Best looking paper plate I have ever seen. Very clever idea.

  2. Oh my goodness! Your stuff is right up my alley! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your blog... This project is just PERFECTION and makes me want to make one right now! I had to come over after the lovely comment and check out another blog with pie in the name:-)
