To Make This Lattice Plate Chargers Perfect For a Spring Garden Wedding Reception You Will Need
Picture Frame Molding
Latex paint that matches your wedding colors
Clear acrylic paint
2 2-inch paint brushes
The first step is to cut out your Lattice Plate Charger shape from the lattice woodwork.
Use your tape measure and simply trace out a rectangle in the lattice to the size you need. Trace it on there with a marker or pencil. A good plate charger should be about 2 to 3 inches wider than your diner plate so you can easily see it.
Now, use your jigsaw to cut the rectangular shape out. Stick to a simple rectangle or square because paint and embellishments will add the details to this Spring Garden Wedding Reception craft project.
Now, once any glue has dried go ahead and prime out your entire piece of artwork in primer. I like to use a small 2-inch paintbrush so I can paint all the small areas in the lattice woodwork.
Now, let the primer dry.
Paint the Lattice Plate Chargers with the purple, pink, or white. Use any color that will carry on your wedding scheme colors into your wedding reception dinner table.
Now, let all of this paint dry.
Now, use the tape measure to measure how long each side of your Lattice Plate Chargers are. Cut your 2-inch wide ribbon to this length. Use the hot glue to attach the ribbon the edge of the lattice.
This will cover any rough edges and give you another opportunity to display your wedding colors on the plate chargers.
You could also use picture frame molding to finish off the edges of this simple lattice plate charger. You will need a miter saw to miter the corners so your frame fits together snuggly. Use wood glue to adhere it, then paint as usual.
For a little more color you could also have some sheets of thin plywood cut out to the same size at your lattice plate chargers. Paint it out in the same color or a new accent color. Now, once the paint dries you can glue this on to the underside of the plate charger.
You wedding guests will se this through the original cutouts in the lattice. It is simple another change to introduce some more colors into your spring garden wedding reception.
