Hallway Shutter and Stickers on Plates






I added some things to my shutter that hangs in my hallway. Before I had a white ceramic medallion in the middle and never thought it looked quite right. I found the FAMILY sign in red, my favorite color, in Ross for only $7.99 so I grabbed it up. I already had the plates and put some scrapbook stickers I had on them. I have seen other people put transfers on plates and had been wanting to try it. I hadn't bought any transfers yet so I used the stickers and they work great! Now I want to add stickers to all my plates. Get the kind with the words or pictures on the clear background and you can't even tell they are stickers. You know I love me some cheap and easy projects!!!
