My obsession with trays continues with this little fabric tray DIY.
It’s my take on this Martha Stewart fabric laminated tray. Instead of doing the lamination on wooden trays, I wanted to try the method on something a little more disposable like a bamboo tray. You need to be a little more conservative with the Mod Podge, but other than that it works great!
- Bamboo plates
- Fabric – enough to cover the plate
- Mod Podge
- X-acto knife
- Cut a square of fabric that covers the width and length of the plate with 1 to 1.5″ overhang on each side.
- Using the brush, coat the wrong side of the fabric with a light coat of Mod Podge. Try not to drench it.
- Now do the same to the top of the plate.
- Carefully flip the fabric over so right side is facing up and place it on the plate carefully. Smooth out the fabric and the wrinkles. You can brush on a little extra Mod Podge to the top of the fabric to make sure the fabric says in place and doesn’t bubble. I do a little extra in the corners and the edges to make sure I have it covered 100%.
- Let it dry completely overnight.
- Once completely dry, flip the plate over and trim the excess fabric with an x-acto knife.
Now you’ve completed an easy decorative plate to use around the house. Use it to store your keys, washi tape, pens or jewelry.
