Instructions

  1. Watch the video tutorial before you begin, and let that be your visual guide for this project.
  2. Prep the serving tray: Begin by cleaning the tray really well. Peel off the label on the back, and use Goo Gone to remove any adhesive residue if necessary. Wash the tray with soap or wipe down with rubbing alcohol.
  3. Paint the tray with light blue chalk paint. Let dry, and apply another coat. Let the second coat dry completely.
  4. Cut one flower decal down to size. Cut the corner to round it and match the tray corners. Peel the decal off the paper backing, and smooth it onto the tray.
  5. OPTIONAL: use a "dry brush" technique with some moss green chalk paint to distress the tray edges a bit. Let dry.
  6. Seal the tray with clear spray or a coat of Mod Podge. Let dry.
