Other Supplies

Wood Tray, Paintbrush, Paper cut-out


  1. Paint the entire tray with Navy Blue paint.  Use two coats and allow for dry time in between.
  2. Apply a coat of Mod Podge Dishwasher Safe to the back of the paper cut-out.  Place the paper cut-out onto the tray near the corner.  Smooth with your fingers to remove any bubbles.  Allow to dry for  15 minutes.  Top-coat with two layers of Mod Podge and allow to dry in between coats.  Cure as directed on the bottle.
  • TIP: Dishwasher safe Mod Podge is great when you want to achieve a very hard coat on surface.  This is great on items that you would not normally put in the dishwasher but where you want the hard finish.
