Simple holiday malamine tray makeover
Hello there, having guests in for the holidays? You can never have enough holiday serving trays. Old trays are so very cheap at the thrift stores, you can take and transform an old ugly tray into a serving beauty!
I never took a before picture but it was prints of a couple of wine bottles and the print was washed out so I first applied a couple of coats of black paint with a sealer, then I used a snowflake stencil and added some tiny specks of snow using a q-tip then enhanced the stenciled flakes with some gold paint. I sanded the edges , and that worked out well even it being plastic. Some bows and white carnations and you have a perfect tray for some wine and cheese for two!
The trays are usually just a dollar or so and look how pretty you can make them. Also a great gift idea you can place a cheese board some cheese and some pretty glasses with some dry sausage or whatever and this makes a perfect house warming or hostess gift. Saran wrap makes some pretty colored plastic wrap that it can all be wrapped in. Thanks for stopping by , hope I gave you some ideas today to help ease the holiday season!
