Lucky for me, we had chargers leftover from our wedding that were begging for new life. A little paint, a little fun accents and we have some awesome art pieces on our wall.
The great thing about this project is you can do this with icons for ANY holiday. I got idea after idea while I was doing this... I think there are many more charger plate crafts in my future.
I bought all of my materials at Michaels (including the chargers). One stop shopping is your friend. :)

* This project is done with acrylic paints. An alternative to this method is cutting out vinyl and adhere it to the plate - if you have the tools to do so.
1. Prep your chargers for painting by cleaning them with dish soap and warm water. Dry thoroughly
Hang and marvel at your craftiness!
