o.k so I know most of crafters are also treasure hunters or thrift-y junkers...I love LOVE going to thrift stores. I love buying the really old stuff and re-purposing it...take for instance these cool silver trays.
You can find these silver trays from really small or really big - and some come very plain or very ornate.
I found a few that are approx. 4-6 inches in circumference and decided to make them trendy and functional.
The first one I made into a chalk board...just used some of that paint in a bottle chalk board paint - you can buy them in all kinds of colors now a days.
my hubbs drilled 2 holes at the top so I can add some ribbon to it and make it functional.
the next two I made using my cricut - I used the vinyl and made up some custom phrases...
and again added the 2 holes so I can hang them
On the bottom of these 2 trays I added some crystals from some old chandeliers
and tah-dah*** something that cost me 70 cents I turned into some custom art...
I love those types of "FOUND TREASURES"
I am linking these up to the following parties:
have a crafty day!
