On my inaugural trip, I found some thin silver trays in the holiday section that I turned into pretty platters for various what-nots:
Much more fun to look at than the before:
And all it took was some scrapbook paper and Mod Podge.
I came up with several designs that worked with my decore.
Lots of Christmas gifts!
This one I am keeping for myself. :)
The trays were $1, and I had the other supplies. If I'd had to buy everything, the project still would have cost around $3 per tray. These trays would be beautiful to use to showcase candles, small dishes, vases, other pretty little trinkets or collections, or to be a catch-all for coins and keys. And I love the vintage look that these have.
A fantastic deal for the result, don't you think?
