DIY Crochet Tray Step By Step Instructions
I had this very vintage tray.
I spray painted it black.
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.
Let it dry.
And that’s it.
I love how neat and organized the tray looks with a hint of handmade love!
I used it to keep my daily stuff but now it’s in the living room with the decorative accents.
So, do you have beautiful handmade crochet mats!

I hope you enjoyed this easy DIY tray tutorial.
