DIY Weekend Project – Turn a Frame into a Serving Tray

Create a beautiful serving tray from an old frame.

What You’ll Need:

  • Paintbrush
  • Satin Latex Paint
  • Scissors
  • Wrapping Paper
  • Spray Mount
  • 2 Drawer or door handles with screws
  • Screwdriver
  • Cardboard

Step-by-step Directions:

    1. Remove the frame’s backing and any glass, which won’t be strong enough for the tray. You should have a 3/8-inch thick piece of glass cut to fit.


    1. Paint the frame. After letting it dry, smooth out rough spots with a fine-grit sanding sponge.


    1. Cut the cardboard and wrapping paper to the same size as the glass that was cut to fit in the frame.


    1. Adhere the wrapping paper to the cardboard to avoid the wrapping paper shifting.


    1. Place the glass in the frame, and then insert the cardboard-backed wrapping paper behind it. If your frame had a backing, put it back on. If not, create one by cutting a piece of matboard to the size of your frame. Adhere it to the back with hot glue and then let it dry.


    1. Flip the frame right sided-up. Center the handles on the shorter sides of the frame. Screw into place, using a drill to make holes for the screw if necessary.
