So, let’s dive into this enchanting project together and unlock the secrets to crafting a neutral-toned decorative tray that will effortlessly elevate your fall ambiance.
The first thing you’ll want to do is get a decorative tray. Whether it’s one you already have, one you find at the thrift store, one you made, or one you buy, like this one I found at Dollar Tree for $5.
This step is optional, but I believe it’s such an important step. I took a peel-n-stick felt pad from Dollar Tree
Cut it into four, equal size pieces, and attach them to each corner. Make sure to align the edges of the tray with the edges of each felt pad piece as close as possible.
You can use any stencil or graphic you’d like. I used two reusable stencils from Essential Stencils.
I stenciled them using white chalk paint and stenciling brushes.
I then wrapped the handles with natural rafia. I used hot glue to attach it and made sure to pull and tug tightly as I wrapped the rafia to ensure it would not come loose.
And that’s it! What do you think?
