Mod Podge Serving Tray DIY in bold colors using wrapping paper, Mod Podge and paint. May 19th is National Mod Podge Day and the 50th Anniversary celebration and I’m pretty sure everyone has used it at some point in a childhood art project. I fondly remember the giant jug always out on the counter in art class. One of my favorite ways to use Mod Podge is the traditional way – to decopage paper to wood. In honor of this creative occasion I have partnered with Plaid, the makers of Mod Podge to bring you this bold bright Mod Podge serving tray and a giveaway. Be sure to scroll to the bottom to enter my giveaway.
To celebrate Plaid is giving away prize packages on their social media channels, live streams, and projects and I am giving away a $50 prize package. (scroll to bottom) In Celebration of National Mod Podge day I made a bold bright serving tray that is perfect for breakfast in bed or as a gift all by itself. I used two of my favorite products to create the tray. Basic Mod Podge to adhere the wrapping paper and Mod Podge Dimensional Magic to create a glossy finish that is easy to wipe off.
On National Mod Podge Day they will be giving away a BIG Mod Podge Prize pack! The prize is valued around $250 in Mod Podge and Plaid products. Just post your Mod Podge craft on Facebook (at this post) or on Instagram with hash tag #nationalmodpodgeday to enter to win! A winner will be chosen during the Plaid livestream at 2 PM on May 19th.
Supplies for the Mod Podge Serving tray:
- Walnut Hollow Wood serving tray
- Ceramacoat Paint
- Mod Podge
- Mod Podge Dimensional Magic (x2)
- wrapping paper – I picked mine up for $.50 from the clearance isle.
- X-ACTO or craft knife
- Sand paper and tack cloth (optional)
To make the Mod Podge Serving tray:
- Sand any rough spots and remove dust with tack cloth.
- Paint the wood tray in your favorite color combinations. I used a pearl on the inside and matte on the sides. Sand if needed and apply a second coat of paint if you need more coverage.
- Trim the gift wrap to fit in the center of the tray. You can try to get it exact or use the craft knife to remove the excess once it is adhered to the bottom.
- Apply a layer of Mod Podge evenly along the bottom and place the gift wrap on top. Gently smooth out any bubbles. Allow to dry before adding the next layer.
- Pour contents of two bottles of Dimensional Magic to center of the tray covering the entire surface. Allow to dry thoroughly .
I covered mine with a loose piece of foil to keep out dust. Once it is dry and cured until firm you can use it and I let mine sit for 24 hours to give it plenty of time to cure.
