MAKE IT / MATCHES VANITY TRAY

DIY-patterned-vanity-tray-009

Hey everyone! It’s Ashley from Sugar & Cloth here again with another simple home decor tutorial. This time we’re putting those cute matches that you picked up solely for the cute packaging to good use. Let’s be honest, we’ve all done that!

You can actually use whatever small objects or patterns you’d like, but this DIY matchstick patterned vanity tray definitely fits the bill for a statement piece for the bathroom, guest room, living room, or any other place you can squeeze in a little extra color.

Materials:
• Matches (or another small object to create a pattern with!)
• Tacky glue
• Plain tray
• Spray paint in the color of your choice (optional if you want a colored tray!)
• 3 Dimensional Magic (you’ll need at least two bottles depending on how big your tray is)

How-To:
• If you want the bottom of your tray (or entire tray) to be a different color, you’ll obviously spray paint it first and let it dry. Once dry, lay out the pattern of your objects or matches to make sure you like it first.

 • Use a small amount of tacky glue one by one on the bottoms of each matchstick and place it back down firmly to make sure it stays in place. This will keep your design from moving once you have the top coat!

 • Squeeze on the 3 dimensional magic all over the bottom of your tray until there’s enough of it on the bottom that it completely covers all of your objects. The idea is that it will harden and create an even surface for you to place things on, so be generous! Let it dry for about 12-24 hours depending on the temperature and humidity.

 • Once it’s dry you can style and place it however you’d like, and the clear coat will create a waterproof surface as well.
