Christmas Cake Plates

Transform your cake plates or plates into a “Christmas Cake Plates” with just a Dollar Tree rub on stencil!

I picked up this cake plate at the thrift store the other day.

I know, you are shocked that I was in a thrift store aren’t you?

Well, I followed the trip to the thrift store with a trip to the Dollar Tree and picked up these $1.00 rub on stencils.

Rubbed them on….

Grabbed my neighbors wrinkly hand and took a photo. (update: this is my hand. I do not “hate” on my neighbor’s hands. That would be my mother. Someone mistakenly thought I was hating on my neighbor. The old timers around here that have been reading my blog know that I use my neighbor’s wrinkly hand in many photo shoots. ; ) XOXO! )


Added some ribbon……

Wah Lah!

Wahlly Lah, Lah, Lah , Ha!

The green ribbon stays on this little plate year round.

I just add a holiday-color -ribbon behind it if I get a hankering.

I had the hankering.

Scratch it off when the holiday is over.

This easy…..

Worried about washing it?

It’s a dollar for a boo-koo of these transfers. (Not to be confused with Honey Boo Boo.)

Boo-Koo definition as found in Rebecca-pedia.

Boo-Koo: Bunch of.

So, don’t panic if you have to wash your plate and your transfer starts to come off.

It’s ok.

Just re-apply.

That easy.

A ton of possibilities are running through your head right now, aren’t they?

Would you use this idea?

There are a ton of cute transfers for only $1.00.

Ready to grab yours?

  1. Super Ka-Ute! Never thought of doing that. What a great idea!! Love the Christmasy ribbon too. Totally tops it off 🙂 I’ll have to check mine for those transfers.

    Happy Holidays!!

  2. Love this idea, and yes, I love thrifted items – as long as they are in good to like-new condition.

  3. Hello! Great idea of the temporary stencil. It looks so nice and makes that cake plate so much more versatile! Stopping from Debbie Doo’s!

  4. Love this idea. I didn’t see these at my dollar store, but they may have come in recently. Guess I know where I’m headed tomorrow. Don’t you think a layer of clearnail polish would protect it for more than one use?

  5. Oh how stinkin cute is this! I love this idea. And non-toxic too:) Thanks for sharing Rebecca. I am having a ball.

  6. What an awesome idea! I have one of this stands my daughter bought me a couple of years ago. I also love changing the rbbon for the holidays, but I just love the idea of the transfers so much!!! Yours looks gorgeous! Thank you for the inspiration!

  7. So cute! I can see these transfers on a lot of things! I will look for these on my next trip to the Dollar Tree!

  8. New inspiration is always appreciated. I’m already rounding up all those cake plates and planning a trip to the Dollar Store. Thanks for the tip.

  9. Make it merry, with this festive plate cake stand; it will bring a festive spirit to any holiday.

  10. Great idea! Merci boo-koo!!

  11. Neighbor’s wrinkly hand??? Apologizing for her hand? Not getting it….

  12. LOVE it! I knew what boo-koo means. But I’ve wondered….how many is a bunch? Is it more than a slew? Less than gobs? ‘Bout the same as a kaboodle? Inquiring minds want to know! But regardless, I’ll be hitting the dollar store today. Thanks!

  13. Very pretty, and what a great idea to be able to use the plate all year. I can see doing it for birthdays, anniversaries, whatever comes along. And at a bargain price, too!

  14. It must be a Rebecca-ism because I use Boo-ku too!

    I must hit up my dollar store and see if they have these rubons. The plates came out wonderful.
