Easy Easter Silhouette Plate Tutorial

Easy Easter Silhouette Plate Tutorial

If there are two things I like, it’s plates and silhouettes, so why not mix the two together for Easter?

When I decorated my mantel for Easter this spring, I decide to keep it simple and silhouette plates seemed like just the ticket.

I made the plates myself — the silhouettes, that is — and it was SO easy it almost seems crazy to show you how I made them!  But, here goes, my super easy Easter  silhouette plate tutorial:



  • inexpensive white plates (you can even use plates you plan to use for eating — this won’t harm your plate and you can eat with it again after Easter)
  • scrapbook paper
  • scissors
  • tape
  • silhouette shapes (I got my bunny and chick shapes here)


I printed out my shapes from my computer and simply cut them out using scissors.

Then, I traced the image out on a piece of scrapbook paper (I traced it on the back of the paper so the lines were easier to see). 


I cut out the silhouette and simply taped it to my plate.  And, voila!  An easy Easter silhouette plate!

You could use double-sided tape or whatever you have on hand.  I used gift wrapping tape because it removes so easily.

You could also decoupage the shapes on to the plate for a more permanent decoration, but I wanted the flexibility to use my plates again for dining or other holidays.  I’ll just keep my cut-out for next year!

Is that an easy project or what?!  I love finding simple and quick crafts for holiday decor — and it’s so inexpensive too!  You can use plates you already have, buy some from a garage sale or the Goodwill.  

If you’d like to see more of what I’m up to, I’d love it if you would visit me at my blog, Lilacs & Longhorns where I share my passion for all things home.

Happy Easter!
