If you love collecting and decorating with vintage windows then you are sure to love this very simple vintage plates and windows DIY.
I started off with two vintage windows that I salvaged from an old thrift shop for about $20 apiece and I hung them over the faux mantel we installed in our dining room. The windows are two different sizes, which adds a nice contrast to this space.
Last year for spring I hung teacups from these same vintage windows.
I loved it so much, as it was such a fun way to usher in the spring.
Watch this video for the materials and details for this year’s plate hanging DIY.
- 7 Small thrifted dishes.
- 7 .5lb Commando Strips.
- Clear Fishing Line
- 2 Old Windows
- 7 thumbtacks
- 2 Nails to Hang the Windows to the Wall.
This is such a simple decorating idea for all your vintage plates and windows!
The Commando strips attached very easily to the back of each plate. Then I simply took a small amount of clear fishing line, tied a knot several times, securing it with a thumbtack to the wooden part of the window.
Choose a fun pattern and style of plate that you like that will display well on your own vintage windows.
Where can I find old windows?
You can find old windows to decorate with at flea markets, salvage yards, second-hand shops, local dump, auctions, antique shops, consignment shops, etc.
Where can I find small vintage plates like these?
Thrift shops and consignment shops are my go-to places for inexpensive dishes. You can find them starting easily as low as .50 cents a piece at these kinds of shops.
