Tool Time Tuesday...Summer Trick To Halloween Treat!!

Here's a quick and easy transformation with a sale item from the summer clearance section...

I found these plates at Walmart for 75 cents for 4 plastic plates. Plastic plates can be found any where, in any color, so this idea is great for any holiday.

Just add scrap booking letters and you have a quick wall decoration.

One word on one plate...or...

Spell out the word on several plates. This would be great on that long narrow wall that you don't know how to decorate.

I found these chip board letters in a consignment shop, but I'm sure something similar is in craft stores.

The black chip board letters had stickers on them already!

Perfect for a little wall decor...just hot glue a hanger on the back.

Great in a plate stand too.

I know pumpkins decorated as witches don't say BOO, but I thought BOO was cute!!

Don't forget to look for some tricks in different places, so you can make some treats. Remember...think outside the box.

Happy Tuesday,


  1. That's so cute! Such a great idea! I've seen people use plastic plate for dry erase boards too!

  2. how clever. The plates do look like frames! what I am doing is tidying a very messy 'desk' area tonight. It is a glass computer desk used for a desk with added mini dressers to hold all the home office things. It is so much improved now. :) time to do this little area with the computer or I guess in the morning.

  3. LOVE it standing in the plate holder with the witchy pumpkin next to it!

  4. Very nice! You often find these plastic plates at garage sales fro pennies! Now I have an idea for them...thanks!

  5. LOVE the square plates! Thanks for sharing some inspiration!


  6. What a great idea. Thanks for sharing.

  7. That is such a clever idea...love it!!

  8. Karen I love your idea with the "fine" china. Great idea, cheap, easy and really cute.

  9. This is a really cute and easy idea to perk up a little vignette. Thanks, Karen.
