Fun bird tray

Here is a fun little tray that ended up fitting in perfectly in my kitchen.

Frame with glass
Craft Paint
Varnish (optional)
Enough fabric or paper to fit frame

*how do you like that powdered coffee creamer that is poofed everywhere? Nice huh? ;)

I happened to have this frame in the closet, so I removed the glass and painted away. I set it out to dry and then sprayed it with a varnish so it would be easier to wipe down after being used.

Then I added a bit of fabric and caulked around the inside (not as neatly as I would have liked, but it adds to the charm, right?). Here is a helpful tip that I didn't think about. At this point, don't pick it up. It squishes the caulk out and then you get to redo it (hence the non-neatness). Just let it sit and dry overnight.

Add your sweeteners, creamers etc and you are good to go! Enjoy!
