Make It: Decoupaged Trinket Dishes

I love to organize my jewelry in pretty dishes. So, when I found these cute little hexagonal plates, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to make some trinket dishes with a personal touch using some of my own printed photos and decoupage medium. On the nightstand or next to the sink, these pretty jewelry catch-alls come in handy anywhere.

Last month I shared this quick decoupage craft over on Landeelu. These simple trinket dishes are easy and inexpensive to make. Make a few extra to keep on hand for gifts. You could even try some seasonal images for the holidays.

Supplies Needed to Make Decoupaged Jewelry Dishes

  • Small shallow plate or dish (I found the hexagon plates at Target.)
  • Dishwasher-Safe Mod Podge (or your preferred decoupage medium)
  • Soft-bristle brush
  • Printed Images (You can download mine below.)
  • Scissors
  • Rubbing Alcohol (for preparing surface)
  • Metallic Leafing Pens (optional for adding edge detail)

How to Make Your Decoupaged Trinket Dish

Start by selecting your images. I chose three bold photos of flowers I had in my photo collection and printed them using a laser printer. I recommend using a toner-based printer or having images copied at your local copy center to avoid smudging when you apply the decoupage medium. I use this Canon laser printer at home. I think using bright white paper really helps the images pop.

Trace the shape of your dish onto the image. Cut the photo to fit your shallow dish or plate.

Follow instructions on your decoupage medium. I used dishwasher-safe Mod Podge so I could use one of my dishes next to the sink without worry.

After the decoupage medium dries, use a metallic leafing pen to accent the edge of your dish.

Easy decoupage craft. Make pretty jewelry dishes to give as gifts.

Clockwise from the top, the edges are gold, copper, and silver. I think the metallic paint adds the perfect finishing touch.

Wasn't that easy? And I am going to make it even easier for you. Download my flower images and you won't even need to look for photos.

I loved putting these cute little dishes together. Experiment with different photo and dish combinations. These bright close-ups have a bold graphic look, but it would be fun to try some black and white or sepia-toned photos for a completely different effect. Or how about making a matching glass tile photo pendant to give as a gift? I think I'd better go buy more little dishes!
