Right, I’ve been slacking on the crafts recently so I don’t have many new things to show… I’m now looking back through my list of things I made last year and never got round to talking about for stuff. At least I found this pin board and tray I decorated for my sister when she moved out last August!
See, it always pays to have a store of pictures of for when days like this come round!
So, when my sister moved out last year I made and decorated a few things for her new place. The tray was already a pretty nice tray. It was white and the bottom had a vintage cupcake design on it, but she’d already bought the tray for herself to put in her kitchen. I got another one and decided to paint it grey and stick some wallpaper to the bottom so that she’d also have a travel themed tray to put in her living room. The tray only cost about €5 so I didn’t feel too bad messing with it.
The frame was just a cheap frame that a bought for about €3 ages back. I used some really pretty French themed napkins to decorate the frame part and rather than put a picture in it, I decided to take the glass out and put some cork board in it so that it could be used as a small, easily transportable pin board. I quite like how it turned out. I might make some more now actually, I do have a lot of pretty napkins that are going to waste…
