No, non-metals could not be electroplated as during electroplating ,a chemical reaction occurs in which metal from the positive terminal settles to the metal on the negative terminal . So as plastic/wood are not metals , they will not be able to lose ions that will be deposited on the other terminal.

Electroplating is a method of plating of a metal by another metal. This is the process which involves transfer of electrons from one metal to another. Wood and plastic cannot be considered as metals as they can't loose electrons. We also know that plastic and wood are non conductors of electricity so electricity won't able to pass through it. So if there won't be passing of current the elements like plastic and wood won't be electroplated.
