This charming kitchen wall decor cost us $1.00 to make. Dollar Tree carries these bright plastic plates and platters regularly. The set we did for our kitchen, assuming you have trouble with basic addition, was $3.00. I actually cheated a bit and used my Silhouette Portrait to cut vinyl letters for my kitchen set. But that’s just a perk if you have one.
These are so easy and fun to make and you can fill your kitchen with whatever words you choose! If you’ve been following along you know this is part of our Outdated Kitchen Transformation. Make sure you check out our last decor addition to the project. Our Chicken Wire Frame Memo Board with Faux Succulents. It’s pretty unique!

NOTE: If you own a Silhouette cutting machine you can of course easily make your own words easily out of vinyl. You can also buy ready made letters at the craft store. The most inexpensive way is to use colored paper and card stock and cut your own. You can use our patterns or make your own on a printer.
- Plastic plate or platters
- Card stock , colors of choice
- Precision Scissors (these are small scissors great for cutting details. This is the best set I have found.)
- Colored paper for text (you can use card stock, I just preferred the flatter paper)
- Glue stick, or other method of attaching letters to plates
Choose a plastic plate size, shape and color.
Print out your words of choice or create your own on a printer and print them out.
Place the letters on a colored piece of paper and carefully cut each one out.
Lay out the words as they will be placed for gluing.
A glue stick works very well for this project as it allows you to slide them for adjusting as you go along.
Coat the back of each letter.
Place them on your plate or platter. If needed, slide them with your finger to align.
For the flowers, print out the flower templates.
Cut out the size you need. We used the smaller two.
Cut the small slit into the middle that allows for overlapping two petals together to make a single petal and give the 3D effect.
Place glue on one next to the cut you made into the center of your flower, then overlap the petal next to it onto it completely, turning two petals into one.
Add a dob of glue and add your center circle. You can trim the double petal with scissors if needed.
Glue onto your platter. Add leaves if desired.
This is the set we did using vinyl cut from a Silhouette Machine to match our kitchen.
We supplied the same text so you could do something similar with your own flowers as flourish.
