Paint tray with multisurface paint

Start by  using your tray bottom to trace a circle on your printable.

Once you’ve traced your circle, paint your tray with multi-surface paint for your decoupaged dish.

While your tray paint is drying, cut out your printable around your traced edge.

Cut printable out to fit inside of tray

Once your circle is cut out, brush decoupage medium on tray and back of paper. Do you love decoupage projects? I love how it can be used to transform something! I’ve decoupaged everything from furniture to home decor using both fabric and paper! And I love how it can be used as a base to paint over too.

Lay the paper on the tray and press,smoothing any wrinkles. That’s the trick with decoupage. The medium has to be spread on both surfaces by smoothing with pressure from the inside out, and all of the bubbles need to be spread out from underneath when placing together. If you find you have bubbles you can’t get rid of, use a pin to prick a small hole while the medium is still wet, and smooth them out.

Once the accents are dry, add a coat of matte varnish to protect the surface, and let dry. Use your dish for display, or to hold little bits and pieces like rings or jewelry!

  1. Seeing your bee and honeycomb printable makes my heart melt. I have a real fascination for bees. They work so hard to keep flowers and plants pollinated. Then we receive delicious honey! So amazing. Thank you for the printable and a lovely way to design it.
    Have a great week, Jennifer.
