Crafts: Autumn Serving Tray
This fall-foliage-theme tray is perfect for serving coffee, cider, or breakfast in bed. You will need:
1 bottle autumn-gold acrylic paint
Mod Podge sealer/glue
ruler and pencil
drill fitted with 1/4-inch bit
2 handles with screws
window cleaner and soft cloth
1) Gather Leaves and Backgrounds
Download them and print. Use sharp scissors to cut out several leaves; then set them aside.
2) Take the Frame Apart
Place the glass and backing in a safe place and give the frame a coat of autumn-gold acrylic paint. Let dry thoroughly and repeat.
3) Make the Surface of the Tray
Paint the frame backing completely with Mod Podge. Piece and place textured background to cover the surface completely. Brush the back of each leaf with Mod Podge and place randomly on the tray surface, with leaf points arrayed in different directions. Let dry thoroughly.
4) Attach Handles
