A few of us got together for another edition of the Dollar Bin Challenge. This time, the three of us chose $3.00 trays in the bins at Target. Our challenge was to upcycle it into something new with a Halloween twist. So, here is my upcycled Halloween tray DIY.
Time: 15 Minutes (not including drying time)
- Two small trays
- Wallpaper Scraps
- Scissors or Rotary Cutter
- Cutting Mat
Any two trays will work. I like these because they are small and work well with a candlestick.
I had scraps left over from wallpapering my guestroom. I measured the inside of the trays and cut pieces of wallpaper to use as a liner. A cutting mat and rotary cutter makes this step so quick and easy.
This wallpaper is water activated. I sprayed a light mist on the back of each sheet.
I folded the sheets over to allow it to activate for about 2-3 minutes.
Next, I simply added wallpaper to the bottom of the tray. I allowed it to dry for a couple hours.
Lastly, using E600, I attached a candlestick to the center of the two trays to create a stand. Use a ruler to make sure it is centered. Allow the E600 to dry completely before using the tray. I waited overnight.
This tray is the perfect size for parties and entertaining. I added some skull bags filled with candy on the top.
On the bottom I filled little spider web cupcake liners with green candies and of course a jeweled skull!
