Easy decoupage jewelry tray

Mod Podged TrayHello there, fellow Mod Podgers! It’s Linda here, from burlap+blue, and I’m thrilled to be here today sharing another tutorial with you all! When I found some simple wooden trays at Michaels the other day, I knew a coat of paint, some Mod Podge, and a few fabric flowers were all I need to create a chic and cute decoupage jewelry tray (or you could use it for anything, really)! Keep reading for the how-to!


  • Mod Podge
  • wood tray
  • fabric flowers (Martha Stewart brand from Michaels)
  • foam brush
  • craft paint
  • Q-tip (for the dots, if desired)

Mod Podged TrayStep 1: Decide on your color scheme, and paint your tray.  I loved the red, pink, orange shades in the fabric flowers I found at Michaels, so I went with a pretty clementine orange shade.

Mod Podged TrayStep 2: Decide on the number and arrangement of your flowers. Don’t want to use flowers? Any shape you want can be mod podged to the tray…a monogram, bird, butterfly, anything, really, would work. Add a coat of Mod Podge to your tray and apply your design. Let dry, and apply 1-2 coats to seal.

Mod Podged TrayStep 3: To add some glam to this piece, I then took gold craft paint and painted the rim of the tray. I also took a Q-tip and added dots to the inside of the tray. These don’t have to be perfect! I tried to paint a fairly uniform pattern, but you could also paint your dots in a confetti pattern for some added fun!

Mod Podged TrayLet dry, and you’re done! This is a super-simple project, but I think it would make a GREAT gift for a newly married couple (use their new monogram to personalize!), for a mom or grandmother for Mother’s Day, or a fun birthday gift!

Mod Podged TrayThank you so much for letting me share with you all today! You can find lots of other tutorials and inspiration on my blog, my facebook page, on pinterest or on twitter! Have a lovely day!
