It’s gifting season. I am a sucker for a cute functional gift, even more so if I can make it. There is something so special about giving a one of a kind handmade gift you know your recipient will use and love. I created a set of 3 small serving trays that would make the perfect hostess gift. They would also go over well with the foodie or entertainer in your life.
Take a look at how easy it was to create these serving trays.
Martha Stewart Crafts Glass Paint in Geranium, Beach Glass, and Metalic Silver.
3 ceramic dishes – I used square dishes from Target that I picked up for $1.99 each
I started by designing 3 images with my Silhouette software. I used basic fonts and a pattern.
I cut each image on Contact Paper to use as a stencil. I cleaned the trays with rubbing alcohol then applied the stencil. I smoothed out any bubbles and created a good seal using my Silhouette scraper.
Once the stencil was on I used a very small amount of paint on a sponge dauber and used an up and down motion to apply it.
I removed the stencil right away and allowed the paint to dry.
To set, this paint needs to be baked in the oven or air cure for 21 days.
These look so cute wrapped up and will make a wonderful gift this season.
