Family Silver Trays With Book-Page Flowers and a Giveaway!


           
Good Morning! I am so excited for this project!


I am here to share my version of the Dollar Tree Value Seekers Club  Platter Wall Hangings. Silver trays are such the rage right now, as are chalkboards and crafts made with book pages! So exciting that you can get these beauties for $1.00! Click on over to see the Dollar Tree version, and get your supply list.


I used 3 trays …2 oval and one round. I painted the back of the round tray with chalkboard paint, it takes at least 2 coats to cover…  When it dried I added the Family saying with chalk. I used the vinyl shelf paper with white glue to attach it to the oval trays.

To make the flowers you need pages from a book and coffee filters, both are available at Dollar Tree. I used 3 coffee filters for each flower and 2 book page flower cutouts.
Fold each filter in half then in half again... and bundle all three folded filters.


Cut an x in the center of the book page flowers and insert the end of the coffee filter bundles. Hot glue together, then hot glue to the platter. I used 3 flowers for the round chalkboard tray and one flower on each of the oval trays.



I used the silver trays on the wall shelf in my kitchen. It needed some new life after the Christmas decorations came down!





Now for the giveaway! I am giving away a $100.00 Dollar Tree Gift Card to one lucky reader! Go sign up for the Value Seekers Club (it’s free and has lots of great ideas), then come back and leave me a comment of what project you would like to try and of course your email so I can contact you! The entries will stay open until January 19,2014. I will draw a winner on January 20, 2014 and notify the winner via email.
Thanks so much for stopping by and good luck on the giveaway!
I have been compensated for this post, but all opinions expressed are my own.

I don't know how in the heck you do it. But I did go and sign up cuz I'd be crazy not to want that giveaway. I liked this fortune cooking idea. Someone had a tip for happy, motivating comments to be put into a jar at work & I think that'd be a great way to display them. Nice of you to do this.

This is such a smart money saving DIY and it is so cute! I just signed up and had no idea they had all of these ideas.

One thing that my mom and I love to do is have themed parties so I love the Paper Fortune Cookie Favors!

Just got back from Dollar Tree. Then I got a text about the motion sensors. Anyway, I think the decorative clothespins are my best option at this point. Thanks for the chance to win.
