From Plain Tray to Vintage Christmas Tray

I hope you will all forgive me my Beauties!~ I am sharing an old post.
I have been working on a couple guest posts for other bloggers
and with the busy small business Saturday (I sold 3 pieces) I have been
a working fool. (a happy working fool..LOL)
So I am showing this old vintage tray that I made since I will be using it in my
Christmas Mantle Reveal this week.
Until then Enjoy this post..:)
and I will have some new stuff coming up this week!

Good Monday Morning my Beauties! I hope you had a wonderful
weekend. I did, and got to spend some good time with friends shopping a recycled art market and Lunch and Dinner with friends.
I am always surprised when I actually get time in a busy weekend to work on a little craft.
This weekend I found this old wood tray that I had. I was trying to figure out something
Christmasy that I could do it.

I remembered I had a graphic last year from The Graphics Fairy
that was some vintage Christmas Typography.

So I printed it off and glued it to my tray and then instead of modge podgeing it
I used a satin spray lacquer to seal it.

I love the vintage Christmas feel it gave to this plain tray.

Slowly but surely I am knocking out some Christmas Crafts and getting ready for the season.
I hope you guys enjoyed this quick little tutorial.
Have a beautiful day!
