Do you need a fast, easy and inexpensive gift for the holidays?
This is your answer.
I bought this faux silver tray at Dollar Tree. I didn't want it the shiny silver it was, so I sprayed it with Rustoleum Metallic Oil Rubbed Bronze.
I held the spray can back far enough that it splattered and didn't do a thorough coat of paint. Just enough to make it look old and dull.
Note: The actual piece does not have that yellowish tinge to it. Don't know where that came from. It shows the color better in the following photo.
I then added scrapbooking letters spelling out JOY. At the bottom, I took a nail and punched a hole and threaded a hanging crystal like doo-dad from the hole. Just knot it in there. I found these in the Christmas items at HL.
I then added a simple 1 1/2" black grosgrain ribbon bow to the top and accented it with a vintage earring.
I hot glued a small black ribbon loop to the back to hang it.
You could use all kinds of lettering:
or whatever you desire.
Hope you enjoy making this!!
Till next time, Judy
