Décor on a Dime: A platter and $1.00 decal turned art

I promised when I showed you my de-cluttered/redecorated kitchen that I would tell you how I made the “There’s no place like HOME” platter you see on top of my fridge.


I shared that I found these great wall decals/stickers for $1.00 at my local Dollar Tree!  Can you believe it – only $1.00!!   (If I had a Silhouette or a Cricut machine, I could have just made my own custom sayings!  I’m just saying – just in case my husband is reading this! :)


I have 2 of these white platters.  They are too big to display in my china cabinet and too big to fit in my top cabinets.  AND I don’t have display space above my cabinets (sooooo wish I did!)  So, I thought this was the next best thing – display it on top of my cleaned off fridge!


I chose one of my favorite sayings and just stuck it on the platter!  SO EASY!!  :)  And then stuck the platter in a stand that I got at Michael’s. 

It is a removable sticker so I can always take it off.  Although, I think if I took it on and off multiple times it would eventually wear out the sticker, so I don’t plan on removing it for a while.


But for now, I wasn’t using it much as a platter so why not use it as art instead! :)  I am all for using what you have!


By the way, these decals would look great on any white plate/platter, in a frame, or on a slat of white painted wood, and many other ways!

Take a look around your house and see what you could repurpose into new décor!
