Instructions

  1. Lightly sand surface, wiping off dust with cloth. Use flat paintbrush to base-coat the tray with acrylic craft paint. Apply as many coats as needed for full coverage, letting dry between coats.
  2. Cut several strips of solid and patterned card stock in varying heights to fit the tray’s width. Place strips in whatever order you like.
  3. Use sponge brush to apply decoupage glue to the tray’s interior. Glue down each card stock strip, overlapping edges as you go. Once tray’s interior is covered, let glue dry.
  4. Apply a coating of decoupage glue, covering the entire surface. Let dry. For a waterproof tray surface, use a clear polyurethane varnish as a final coat.
