License Plate Decoration

License Plate Decoration

We have slowly been gathering license plates to hang in Tyler’s bedroom (3 years old) to go along with the Cars theme he has. We had a few hanging up in there, but have gotten a lot more lately, and I was trying to decide what to do with them all. A while ago we had talked about lining his wall with plates, but realized that would not work well and put way too many holes in the wall. So as I was looking through all the plates we have, I laid them out on the counter top and that gave me an idea. I used some twine/rope that I already had from previous projects, and used that to tie the plates together, and put a large one at the top to hang them all from. This meant now we would only have 6 holes in the wall, instead of the dozens from hanging each plate individual. I used one nail at the top to hold them up, and put two in the bottom to keep them from moving on the walls. Overall, I am pretty happy with how it came out, and Tyler loves it which is the most important.

I tied the plates together, with a little room between them so they aren’t on top of each other.

Tied a long piece to the top of the first plate to be able to hang them all from.

Finished products… for now. I still would love to collect plates from other states that we don’t have and make another two eventually. But for now, they are balanced!
