I don’t know about you, but I love to organize my jewelry in pretty little dishes. When I found these cute little hexagonal plates, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to make a few more jewelry dishes using some printed photos and dishwasher-safe decoupage medium.
Hi, Laura back today from Left on Peninsula Road. Today I’m sharing a quick decoupage craft project. These simple jewelry dishes are easy and inexpensive to make. Make a few extra to keep on hand for gifts.
Supplies Needed for Decoupaged Jewelry Dishes
- Small shallow dish or plate (I found the hexagon plates at Target.)
- Dishwasher-Safe Mod Podge
- Soft-bristle brush
- Printed Images (You can download mine below.)
- Rubbing Alcohol (for preparing surface)
- Metallic Paint Pens (for edge detail)
How to Make Your Decoupage Jewelry 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 smearing.
Trace the shape of your dish on the image. Cut to fit your shallow dish or plate.
Follow instructions on your decoupage medium. I used dishwasher-safe Mod Podge so I would feel comfortable using one of my dishes next to the sink without worry.
After the decoupage medium dries, use a Metallic Leafing pen to add an accent around the edge of your dish.
Clockwise from the top, the edges are gold, copper, and silver. I think the metallic paint adds the perfect finishing touch.
Wasn’t that an easy project? 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 to see what photo and dish combinations you like best. 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. I think I’d better go buy more little dishes!
