How to decorate a clear glass tray.

How to decorate a clear glass tray with new Mod Podge Rocks stencils and glitterYou see them everywhere, don’t you? The clear glass tray. And you always pick it up and think “what could I do with this?” Well, trust me – I do the same thing. They are at the dollar store, the craft store, IKEA . . . I’ve even bought them from time to time and let them sit. Well, I’m pleased to announce that I have found a fun and quick way for you to decorate them – Mod Podge Rocks stencils! This is my new product line that you can find in Michaels stores, and these stencils make it VERY easy to get detailed designs with Mod Podge and glitter. Here’s how I decorated this tray.

Gather These Supplies

  • Clear glass dish
  • Mod Podge Rocks Peel ‘n Stick Stencil – Tangier
  • Mod Podge Gloss
  • Mod Podge Dimensional Magic
  • Mod Podge spouncers
  • Glitter in the color of your choice
  • Stencil or painter’s tape
  • Paintbrush

IMG_3088You can decorate several trays with these supplies above! Imagine making them for all of your neighbors – just sayin.’ Before you begin, clean and dry your glass surface with mild soap and let dry.

IMG_3089 Carefully peel the stencil from the backer and place inside of the glass dish, making sure that you have an even border around all sides. Use stencil or painter’s tape to tape off the border so that you don’t get Mod Podge in those areas.

IMG_3090Use a spouncer to apply Mod Podge to the stencil. Work quickly so that the Mod Podge doesn’t dry. Cover the entire area with a medium layer. Then peel up the stencil immediately.

IMG_3091 Sprinkle glitter on top of the Mod Podge. Dump the glitter off onto a piece of paper or a glitter tray (pour the remaining glitter back into the jar). Then let the Mod Podge dry completely. Wash the stencil and return it to the backer.

Use the paintbrush or a similar tool to remove the excess glitter from the surface – just brush it away.

IMG_3101Apply the Mod Podge Dimensional Magic to the inside of the dish and let dry in a dry, warm area – don’t put it under a fan (it could crack). Your dish will be ready to use after drying for 24 hours.
