Today I am sharing a very simple and cute DIY tray tutorial. Make an old vintage tray look beautiful and decorative.  I had this old tray that I refashioned by using mod podge and crochet mat.

DIY Crochet Tray Step By Step Instructions

I had this very vintage tray.

 This crochet mat is very special because it’s handmade by my mom.

She loves to crochet, she used to crochet beautiful things when I was a baby. And I am a big fan of her talent. She tired hard to teach me but crochet requires patience. I love to see the things she creates.

So where were we! Yes, and she agreed into letting me use a few of her mats. From 12 crochet white mats, I used one into making this crochet tray.

 Luckily, it fit my tray well.
Just like the tray and the crochet mat were made for each other.
So, I cut the side of the mat and separated the two parts. (i e side and center)
It was so exact that I didn’t cut the side into a long ribbon but instead I cut it into a ring not losing the continuity. Finally, I decoupaged it on to the tray using mod podge.

    My wife used to crochet a lot, but doesn't have the time now. I have no such talent (LOL). This is pretty special though and a wonderful keepsake too. Nice presentation. Thanks for sharing.
