DIY Fabric Decorative Tray Tutorial


Hi this is Clara from Online Fabric Store. In this no sew project I’m going to add a pop of color to this plain wooden tray. I’m going to spray paint it and add fabric to the bottom. So let’s get started. Along with a wooden tray the materials you’ll need are: a piece of small fabric, this is Premier Prints Rosa Mandarin Dossett, spray paint, I’m using RustOleum Painter’s Touch Gloss Orange, fabric Mod Podge, a yardstick or other measuring device, a rotary cutter and mat or scissors, a paint brush, and a fabric marker. Outside or in a well ventilated space with your work surface protected, evenly spray the tray with several coats of thin spray paint. And let it dry. I’m going to choose what part of the pattern I want for the bottom of my tray. I’m going to center my tray over that part. Then I’m just going to trace around the outside of the tray. I’m going to use a rotary cutter to cut out my piece. With my Mod Podge I’m going to brush along the edges and then fold it over about 3/8 of an inch. And repeat for the other sides. You’ll have a little time to adjust it before it dries. Now I’m going to put a layer of the Mod Podge on the bottom of the tray. Now I’m just going to lay down my piece of fabric and press it down. Add another coat of Mod Podge on top of your fabric. You can even then coat the rest of your tray with Mod Podge so that the sheen is the same across the tray. And that’s it, super quick and easy. Now you have a unique decorative tray that you can use to accessorize your space. Thanks for watching this OFS project.
