Craft Project - Pink Flowers Tray

by Wen Zientek-Sico


This beautiful and useful tray is very easy to make and budget friendly. I like making decorated trays and using them as gift baskets for a really personal touch. This tray is also a great project for children of all ages who really love choosing and sorting the different sizes, colors, and shapes of the flowers used.

Pink Flowers Tray

This beautiful and useful tray is very easy to make and budget friendly. I like making decorated trays and using them as gift baskets for a really personal touch. This tray is also a great project for children of all ages who really love choosing and sorting the different sizes, colors, and shapes of the flowers used.

1 11.5 inch by 14.5 inch wooden tray

Burgundy acrylic paint

1 large brush

Assorted flower and seed catalogs

Scissors

Decoupage glue

Clear varnish

Cover your work surface thoroughly with newspaper. Paint the first coat of burgundy paint on the top and sides of the tray using the brush. Let dry thoroughly for a few hours, and then repeat with the second coat. Detail of Pink Flower TrayLet the paint dry thoroughly. Sort through the flower and seed catalogs and cut out all the flowers you can find in every shade of pink. The flowers do not have to be perfectly cut, but most of the background should be cut away. Starting in the center of the tray, glue down a flower cut out using the decoupage glue. One by one, add the flowers, overlapping each flower slightly. Fill in any gaps with small flowers. Let the glue dry thoroughly. Brush on at least one coat of varnish over the flowered area of the tray and let dry completely according to the package directions. Brush on another coat of varnish over the entire tray and let dry completely before using or wrapping.
