My Crafty Weekend

my inspiration
I am so proud of myself for actually starting and finishing a project this weekend. I have all these ideas always swirling around in my head and I never get around to them for one reason or another. But these trays were just too cute not too make.

So I set out to the Dollar Tree and Home Depot in search of my supplies.

Dollar Tree: platters (3 per set), candlesticks (2 per set), All-Adhesive Super Glue

Home Depot: spray paint, spray paint primer (for three trays, next time I'd buy 2) , and tarp.

Round 1: Prime everything (front and back) and wait one hour. I waited 3o minutes in between front and back sides.

Round 2: Spray one coat on front and back.

Round 3: Spray second coat. Let dry for 24 hours.

Round 4: Glue pieces togeter. Easy as pie :)

Don't they look fabulous? It makes me so excited to use them! But it's important to mention these trays aren't dishwasher safe or food safe. I plan to use doilies, parchment paper, cupcake liners, or scrapbook paper to place the food on.

Now, on to my next project :)
