Decoration idea - An easy wooden tray make-over

In summer we all like to enjoy a refreshing drink in the sun. By working with wallpaper scraps, you can transform a boring wooden tray into an explosion of colour in no time. It doesn't just look nice now, but above all it's a cheap and easy Do It Yourself project.

Scroll down quickly and discover how to make your own decorative tray in 5 steps.

Before you start, collect these items:

  • A wooden serving tray

  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Carpet knife
  • Brush
  • Spatula

Wooden tray makeover in 5 steps

Step 1: Clean the tray to make sure there isn’t any dirt or dust.


Step 2: Measure and cut the wallpaper to fit inside the tray. Place the wallpaper in the tray to make sure it will fit.


Step 3: Glue it with a brush and add wallpaper edge glue for extra firmness.

Don't you have this in the house? No problem, spray glue or double-sided tape also do their job perfectly.

Tip: by using paste-the-wall wallpaper, you can easily glue the surface instead of the wallpaper. Click here and discover why you should get going with Paste The Wall wallpaper.


Step 4: Carefully place the wallpaper on top.


Step 5: Smooth out the paper and make sure it is lying completely flat. Remove excess wallpaper where necessary.


And don't forget the last step: enjoy the summer and a refreshing drink!

This is handy: the vinyl wallpaper we use is tear-resistant and highly resistant to water. After use, it can be easily wiped with a damp cloth.
