Cheap Invisible Plate Hangers

cheap invisible plate hangers, repurposing upcycling
Those metal clips are D-rings, you would find these on the back of frames and they are found in hardware stores near all the other picture hanging hardware.  I used Gorilla Glue (see update below) and glued the D ring to the plate for about  $.10 a plate.  Keep in mind, this is somewhat permanent.  In theory you can scrap/chisel gorilla glue off but I wouldn’t do this to any plate you would ever want to use in another way.  They have been up for months and have 3 boys thundering by them daily and are still hanging firmly where I put them.
I laid my plates on the floor to get a layout, and did a few rough measurements to decide how high to hang the top one.  Mostly I eyeballed it and tried to space them evenly.    I love the results!  Dirt cheap too!
Need a plate collection?  I can find them for you, CHEAP!  Message me for details!
UPDATE:  I have since used an ES 6000 type glue and I like it even better for this purpose, but it stinks so use in a well ventilated area.
Find me on pinterest, instagram as selinagj, or my facebook page.  In all of these places you’ll find lots of repurposed projects!
