How to make DIY Decorative Vintage Serving Trays

If you want to see the full supply list or video tutorial, just scroll to the bottom of this page!

I started with my ovular serving tray first. Spray the ornamental edges of the serving tray with your brown spray paint and allow the paint to dry.

Separate the plies of your floral napkin and keep just the ply with the design handy. Apply a coat of white paint to the front of the adhesive tile.

Make sure the paint on the serving tray is completely dry, then place a piece of wax paper on the serving tray and trace where the inner oval is.

Cut out that oval and trace it on the back of the adhesive tile. Apply a coat of Mod Podge to the front of the painted adhesive tile and place the napkin onto the surface.

Allow the Mod Podge to dry completely and use a piece of sandpaper to remove the excess napkin from the adhesive tile.

Paint the ornamental edges of the serving tray with white paint. Keep a semi-light hand so some brown paint peeks through the white paint.

Allow the paint to dry completely, then glue down the decoupaged adhesive tile to the center of the serving tray.

Fold a bow out of the denim ribbon and secure it with a piece of jute twine. Glue your bow onto the serving tray.

Next, use a wood bead garland from Dollar Tree or thread wood beads on a piece of jute twine to make the hanger for your decorative serving tray.

Lastly, glue the ends of the twine hanger to the back of the serving tray. You can glue a piece of ribbon over each end to secure them more. Once the glue is dry, you’re ready to decorate!

For the second decorative tray, paint the edges with black paint. Allow the black paint to dry, then place wax paper on the serving tray and trace the inner shape of the serving tray.

Cut out the rectangle from the wax paper, trace it on the back of the adhesive tile, and cut the rectangle out.

Paint over the napkin ply with white paint. Allow the white paint to dry, then apply a coat of Waverly celery chalk paint.

VERY lightly brush white paint across the tile so that it gets on the ridges of the adhesive tile but doesn’t cover up the celery chalk paint.

Apply white paint over the black on the serving tray. Once the white paint is dry, glue the adhesive tile onto the serving tray.
