Tray Creations~

With a little help from the Dollar Store,
 this wall art is quick,
 easy and so chic.
Starting with a light weight oval metal catering tray found at the Dollar Tree,
 I painted it, added distress, sheet music graphic, wood letters and embellishments,
 to create a french wall design and more.
First I drilled holes at the top for adding ribbon for hanging and then I gave the metal tray a coat of glass and tile medium for a primer,
 let dry and then painted the background black and sanded off a bit for a little aged distress.

You could also just paint the tray with chalk paint and I have done it this way too.

G&T medium can be found at any craft store in the paint section.

Added distress with medium sand paper.

To the background,
I added a sheet music graphic from The Graphics Fairy
 and glued in place with mod podge and trimmed with silver edging.

Next I painted and glittered wood letters to spell PARIS,
(you could do any wording big or small at this point)
  then glued in place and added lace hem tape to the top for hanging.

Letters also found at the craft store.

 Lastly accented with flower trims,
buttons, little jewels trims like the little French Poodle pin and silk flower pin and feather brooch.

Love this sweet little French poodle pin.

Painted wood letters in white and glittered generously!!

That's it, finished and ready to hang.
This idea can be created in many other ways and words that will fit on this
8 X 10 inch light weight metal tray from the Dollar Store.
Here is another style~
And of courseI had to paint a few roses too.
Hope this gave you some ideas.

Until next time.
Wishing you Southern DayDreams
