Upcycling cherry trays

A trip to Tescos proved more fruitful than expected when I eyed up some delicious 1kg cherries that were in a very nice plain wooden tray. Not only were they on offer, but I thought I could make use of the box they were sitting in once we'd eaten all those cherries!

When I realised these trays were stackable, I decided another trip to Tescos was needed and was delighted to see that the cherries were still on offer. These trays are slightly smaller than A4.



I used 2 coats of  duck egg chalk paint and then decided to use one of my Dreamees flower stamps to decorate the trays. I finished it off with some Dovecraft clear glitter glue for the centres of the flowers, which took the colour of the paint below to give a lovely aqua sparkle.
I was really pleased with the finish.

All it takes is a little of imagination to create something different or breathe new life
into something old.


Happy Crafting
