Make a Burlap Stenciled Tray

I want to say a big thank you to Rhoda from  Southern Hospitality for featuring my home tour! Welcome to every one stopping over!
Remember the stenciled burlap project I did, and I though I was going to make a pillow? I wanted to show you instead of How to Make a Burlap Stenciled Tray.
How to stencil on burlap

 I decided instead to add it to this great tray I had picked up on one of my thrifting adventures. I wanted to add an accent to it with a stenciled piece that could be used in a guest room or living room. Using a stencil and some black fabric paint it’s easy to customize and create any message you want for your tray.

I decoupaged old book pages to the tray bottom and them adhered the burlap panel on top.

 I made sure to glue down the edges, and it was ready to go. A piece of plexiglass cut to size will protect the surface and keep the burlap and book pages from being stained.

I had it out at the barn sale where it went pretty quick to  a happy, new home. You could do this project with any message. With the 4th of July, you could use God Bless America, or even a phrase from The Star Spangled Banner. I am glad I used Stay a While….
I love that warm and welcoming message. 🙂
