Not satisfied with hiding these wonderful plates in my dollhouse where they're difficult for family and friends to see and admire, I decided to mount them on a wall instead. Here's what I did: I bought a color-coordinated 5 x 7 easel-style frame and replaced the glass with a sheet of textured paper. I then removed the easel mount and replaced it with a wall hanger. I carefully glued each plate onto the paper backing which, in turn, is glued securely to the frame back.
I love the fact that this display idea allows viewers to enjoy these tiny works of art not only from a visual, but also a tactile, viewpoint. Who wouldn't want to reach out and caress these adorable kitties and feel the tiny raised bumps of the stitches on their sweaters?
