Tray Makeover- Craft Night

Our local pottery painting venue "Crazy Glaze" had a Diva Night tonight for women only, a BYOB type of thing with pizza and pottery. I decided to get a group of friends together to go but when I called to make a reservation, all of the spots were taken. So, since we already had everyone on board to get together, I decided to host craft night at my house. We kept the menu the same and had pizza but instead of pottery, we painted trays.

I gave a sneak peek of our set up in my last post but here it is again for those of you who missed it...


After the ladies arrived, we ate dinner and then got started....
 Painting...



 Cutting out designs on the Silhouette...

Drying the paint so we can apply our designs...

A little free hand painting action...

Using ModgePodge to apply our paper designs...


Mica's awesome moose tray!

Kara's tray- I LOVE this design- I may have to copy this!

Sarah's lovebird monogram tray!

Allie's monogram tray (I didn't get to get a picture of it completely dry!)

Erin's bird tray!

Tonight was so much fun! I am happy with how everyone's trays turned out! This was a super cheap and easy project. I got the metal trays from the dollar store (they are pizza trays) and bought 99 cent bottles of paint so that we had a large selection. We used the Silhouette to cut out designs in cardstock and then just used modge podge to put them on the trays. Can't wait to do craft night again soon!
