DIY Friday - faux lucite tray

I've been contemplating jumping on the bandwagon that is regular weekly posts. My brain juices concluded - what better way to kick off the weekend than a bit of DIY love. Thus began 'DIY Friday'. And this weeks DIY couldn't be simpler.

This whole lucite craze got me cray, and I decided I needed a quick fix. For Easter I purchased a tray of Ferrero Rocher and I knew the tray would be perfect for a little project. And I mean painfully little. Here is what I came up with ... 


What you'll need - an empty Ferrero Rocher tray, a piece of paper, fabric or cloth to your liking to fit said tray, a pencil, scissors {or paper cutter as pictured - not necessary}, and double-sided tape {optional}. 

Step 1 - eat chocolates. Step 2 - use the Ferrero Rocher cardboard insert to trace onto your paper / fabric / cloth. With your paper cutter or scissors, cut out your new tray liner.



Step 3 - snugly add your paper / fabric / cloth. You can choose to add a bit of double-sided tape to the corners at this point. It is not necessary and be aware it'll be tricky to remove so you'll need a bit of hormone-induced rage to remove it. Step 4 - accessorize your tray how you see fit. Or if you have anyone monitoring you, accessorize however they see fit {Holly will know what I'm talking about}.


And there you have it. A cheap and cheerful DIY to {hopefully} get your creative juices going for the weekend ahead. If hitting a nightclub is more your scene this evening, I'm afraid a faux lucite tray DIY will be of no use to you.

Happy Friday folks! Peace out. xx A

  3. Excellent re-use project. I am particularly fond of step 1... Just sayin'. Speaking of which, I am sure I have some chocolate in this house, somewhere. I have a bad feeling that I might end up eating the baker's chocolate.

    1. There is no shame in that Pat. I've done that once or twice in my time. Or ten.

    1. It's amazing how I can go from zero to psycho in a matter of seconds if the most simple of tasks is not working in my favour.
