Dollar Store Tray Makeover

A couple of weeks ago I picked up two clear plastic trays from the Dollar Store.
I had two ideas to make them a unique home decor item and both involved fabric scraps. The first one I decided to cover in burlap that I had left over from Christmas.
With a little Mod Podge and a few clothespins, I had a burlap covered tray. I thought it need a little something, so added a simple flower stencil.
Then I stenciled with black paint and it was done.
Now I placed it on my nightstand to keep everything I need close by and organized.
The second tray I covered in a nice green Fleur de Lis pattern.
And placed it on my dresser to keep my Jewelry,rings and nailpolish all in one place. They are super easy to create with just a little piece of fabric, Mod Podge and a few days to let them dry and the results are a custom tray to match your decor! Enjoy!
