Revamped Perfume Tray

You may remember this adorable pattern from the DIY Matryoshka and Owl Coasters.  I can’t get enough of it, so I remade my boring old perfume tray with a little mod podge.  Ahh mod podge, is there anything you can’t make prettier?  No, there is not.  This is a crazy-easy 3-step project, get the full Perfume Tray Revamp after the jump…

Perfume Tray Revamp

Acquire one old tray.  it can be made out of pretty much anything…plastic, glass, or in this case melamine. If you have a wood tray, check out Jacinda’s DIY Tray for more details on how to revamp it.  Also grab some pretty paper, some mod podge, and a sponge brush.  This tray has been with me so long it was showing its age, time for a revamp!

1. Using an x-acto knife and a self-healing cutting matt, cut your paper down to size.  Apply one light coat of mod podge to the inside bottom of the tray:

2.  Center your paper on the tray and rub any bubbles out with your fingers:

Let that dry for at least 20 minutes.

3.  Apply a light coat of mod podge on top of the paper, then let it dry.


Remember you can’t put anything hot directly on mod podge or it will melt. If you want to do that you need to seal it with an acrylic sealer or polyurethane spray or some other sealant of your choosing.




Love it!!! That pattern is beautiful, and you are right about Mod Podge..I only just discovered it and wonder how I ever crafted without it! I truly love your site, thank you for sharing so much! đŸ™‚
