I picked up a few plates at the dollar store today.
I wanted to have "trick or treat" plates, including the definition of each word.
If you don't have a vinyl machine,
just grab these images, print them and use Mod Podge to stick them to your plates.
After I had the plates made I realized that I didn't have any stands to put them on.
I had to improvise.
I cut a few blocks out of a 2x4
Then I cut an "L" shape with a little notch in the lip.
I used a bandsaw, but you could also use a jigsaw.
I'll admit, not the fanciest, but functional...yes.
The Joe tried to compete with me by making what would have been a clearly superior model,
but he got bored and gave up before finishing, so I win by forfeit.
I painted them black and they were ready to hold plates!
