Decoupaged Tray Tutorial


Decoupaged Tray Tutorial

I Like reusing & up-cycling of rough things,Its good to create something fun instead of throwing them outside.My today’s idea is an easy reuse.
My mother was going to throw this melamine plastic tray outside because it was having some scratches,so it was looking dull. I take this & try something for making this tray useful :)
First I thought to paint it,But my study schedule didn’t allow me to do something detailed..huh…Finally I come up with this easy idea…
Lets see..

Its Not a wooden tray,totally plastic but I paste a scrapbook paper in the middle to hide its scratches & then simply Mod Podge it !

You Will Need

Used Tray

scrapbook paper(wooden print)

ModPodge & Brush

Scissor & Pen

When the glue will get totally dry Then apply Mod podge for the final shiny look :)
and its Done..What do you think, is it looking fine?

I am happy that my mother is going to use it again(not throwing now!) She liked it and I feel good :) Do you like it..? let me know!
Have a Great Day,

    Great idea, is mod podge is water resistant?
    I have one query, may be you could help me out.
    I have glass bottles, which I want to, give nice graphical designs and use as refrigerator bottle. Suggest me color brand that should be water resistant.

    What a pretty look!!!!

    Thanks everyone for the nice comments,
    Mod Podge is a varnish craft glue,I am not sure about its water resistancy for long time.I will suggest any enamel paints for bottle painting.So you can easily refrigerate the bottles.I will recommend Plaid brand but lets see if this brand is available in your area.
    You can also use glass paints of any available brand :)
    Thanks ~
