A simple, inexpensive way to have custom chargers. The sky's the limit here. Just imagine what you can do with different wrapping papers or tissue paper. By using this technique, you can make a different charger for each holiday and/or occasion.
I wanted a pink charger to set an Easter table and thought "Why not just spray paint it?" I lightly sanded it and then sprayed it with a couple coats of paint. Now, it's possible that if submerged in water, it may peel. But since it is only used as a charger, it doesn't get that dirty and after use, I just wipe it down.
Last week I put together a tablescape for my son's birthday using old vinyl records as chargers. Another idea is silver platters. I'm on the look out at garage sales for inexpensive ones to use as chargers. So be creative! and share some of those ideas with us!
