Time for another walk down memory lane. This was a fun project I made for my mom. We bought the tray at Hobby Lobby at a huge discount (I got one, too) and decided to give it a mini makeover.
HOW TO PUT LETTERING ON A TRAY
Mom picked out a font she liked and printed out "EAT" so we could trace it on to the tray. To transfer the words on the tray, flip over the paper and trace in pencil. Push hard to make sure the carbon transfers to the tray.
(The fun part of doing this with my mom--I get to be in the photo shoot! Hi everyone! Oh, look how nice and skinny I was before I got pregnant...sigh.) Next, take the paper and put it on your tray and trace again, with a pen or other sharp writing utensil. The carbon from the pencil will transfer the words onto the tray. (I've also used chalk and it works great).
Next, take your trusty black paint pen or Sharpie and begin to fill in the letters. Make sure you have them centered correctly! Diet Dr. Pepper is always a must when completing a craft project.
Another view.... Ta-da! Finished product. Nice. You can also go for the rustic look by getting a light-weight sandpaper and running it over the words to make them look worn. So fun to do with my mom!
I hope you guys have a great week and as always, thanks so much for stopping by!
