A few months ago, a friend gave me a challenge – to create a DIY tabletop display for independent sales reps. I had this idea for an image transfer to glass that I had been wanting to try for a while so it seemed like the perfect time to test it out. The result is a DIY glass plate that can be created from any image.
My friend had just started selling Younique, so I used the company’s logo and colors to test my project. Since she had just started selling Younique, I thought I would mail her the plate when I was done, but then I decided to become and independent sale rep with Younique so I kept the plate.
Looking for an easy way to spruce up your tabletop display? This easy, yet striking project will look pretty on your table and get conversation started with potential customers, everyone will want to know how you made it. And although it looks complicated and there are several steps, it is really quite simple to create – I promise. Each step takes only a few minutes; the biggest time involvement is drying time in between.
Once you have your plate, the possibilities for its use are endless — display business cards or product, place it on a plate stand to serve as a background to give your display height, serve candy or even cookies on it.
- Mod Podge – Glossy or Matte
- Sponge Brush
- Glass Plate from the Dollar Store
- LASER copy of your logo
- Tissue Paper
Print a copy of your logo on a laser printer. If you don’t have one, go to a copy store. An ink jet printer image will not transfer well. Once you have your image, cut the image to fit the bottom of your plate.
Tip – remove every bit of paper you can, otherwise you will see it later. I suggest letting it sit for a bit, then come back and rewet it and rub some more.
When the plate is dry brush another generous layer of Mod Podge directly on to the back of the plate (both over the image and up the sides) and carefully place the tissue paper circle to your plate. Smooth out wrinkles and bubbles with your fingers, but taking care not to rip the paper.
There you have it, and easy decorative plate with any image or logo you can think of.
