|Tutorial Tuesday: Decoupaged Trays|

16 Aug

Richard’s sister has a cute little tray she put on the chaise part of her couch to hold the clickers, cups, snacks for little Morgan and more and I adore it! So I decided I wanted to make one or more of my own.

We went to the flea market and I picked up two darling little trays for .50! They had a pretty horrendous image already decoupaged on them, but thats the amazing thing about decoupage… you can cover anything up, just about.

I also have extra music sheets from the origami flowers I made for Breana’s wedding and since Richard and I love to play music, I thought that would be perfect to cover up those ugly beach images on the trays.

Im going to tell you the process to make your own, which really doesn’t require much. It was a very quick craft!


  • Tray{s} of any size and color
  • Pictures, paper, music sheets – anything paper that you want to cover the trays with
  • Modge Podge
  • Paint or sponge brush
  • Scissors
  • Cut your paper to size.
  • Make sure you wipe down the surface of the tray you will be pasting on – any debris might make it harder for the paper to stick. Let the surface dry and then apply a thin coating of the modge podge.
  • Place the paper on the tray and then apply another layer of modge podge on the top of the paper.
  • Wash your brush.
  • Let the tray dry at least 24 hours before use.
  • ENJOY!
See…. SO easy to do and it only took me about 10 minutes total. Go try it out!
Happy Crafting!
