The $2 Treat Tray

Confession: I don't make pretty looking desserts. I've come to accept that fact about myself. So, when I saw these I knew I could make something adorable that I could put my ugly treats on.

This will be a short tutorialette, for more details click on the link above.
I found two trays at the dollar store and two candle holders at DI. (Goodwill)
Then I cut up some scrapbook paper into one inch strips and started mod podging them onto the tray. Then I put two more coats on top, and when that dried I did one coat of spray shellac.
Then I filled the candle holders up with some fake flowers and gorilla glued that to the bottom of the tray.
Now I have to decide if I should glue them in a stack (kind of tall)
Or leave them as is, side by side. What do you think?


  1. So creative!! How do you come up with that stuff?! I like them separate. They are so cute!

  2. Turned out cute! Please feel free to post this on Talented Tuesday tomorrow at My Frugal Family, found at!
