I don't know why, but I'm addicted to burlap. I knew I wanted to make a tiered tray but didn't want to just spray paint it (though a teal would have been cute.) I thought, "lets cover it in burlap!!" So here's my how to on how to make this up-cycled tiered burlap tray:
- Burlap (enough to cover both lids with overlap)
- Wooden dowel (the thicker the better)
- Topper of choice (I used a burlap flower I had on hand)
- Adhesive of Choice (I like a my glue gun)
Step 1: Wash your containers and dry well.
Step 2: Trim off the lip of the containers to your liking. I went almost all the way down on the clear tray and halfway down on the black tray. If you find your edges too sharp melt down slightly with a lighter or some other heat source.
Step 3: Make your dowel holes and cover the trays with burlap, securing with adhesive as you go. I used a smaller dowel but a thicker one is better.
Step 4: Add the trays to the dowels and secure with adhesive. I put hot glue above and under the tray for added strength.
Step 5: Add your topper and admire! I had a burlap flower on hand and it fit perfectly (I told you I was addicted to burlap, lol.)
