I really like using chargers for projects because they are very inexpensive and look great with vinyl. I like that they are round instead of the typical rectangle shaped sign. But, sometimes, the metallic look isn’t the look I’m going for. Did you know you can paint chargers? Well, you can! I’ve done it here, here, and here. And, I did it again today with this patriotic themed charger.

Here is you need:
– Paint (Beige, Brown, Red, and Blue,)
– Plastic Charger
– Vinyl (any color will work)
– Transfer Tape
– Electronic cutter (cricut explore, silhouette or other cutter)
– Weeding tool
– Cut File (see below)
– Ribbon for bow and glue (Optional)
1. Lightly sand the charger to remove some of the finish. This will help the paint stick. Paint it beige (or whatever color you want) and let dry.
6. Paint a light coat of beige over the vinyl stencil to help minimize bleeding.
7. Fill in the design with red and blue paint.
8. Let paint dry to the touch, then carefully remove the vinyl.
9. Glue on a decorative box, if desired.
Display on a decorative plate stand.
I love how it turned out!
