One of my favorite home accessories are trays. They keep your life organized and are perfect for anything, ranging from your home bar to your night stand filled with fresh flowers, a candle, and a good book/magazine. My favorite use of trays are, of course, for perfumes.
I got a vanity the moment I moved to my apartment last Fall, since the bathroom was to small an area to do my makeup. Plus any excuse for a pretty, feminine vanity, sounded perfect for me. Since the perfume tray I bought was to large for my vanity, I decided to make a tray myself. All I needed was a pretty picture frame, beautiful fabric, and a simple piece of paper.
Here's how to make it:
Necessities: A sparkly picture frame, pretty fabric, and silver paper.
I used the faux picture inside the frame as an outline for the silver paper.
Then I used the same paper as an outline to cut out the fabric. I let the fabric be a little larger since I was able to fold over the edges in the picture frame.
Final product: Place the silver paper underneath the fabric and enclose it in the picture frame for something pretty to add to your night stand or vanity.
And of course, it is perfect for my perfumes!
Here are the steps for how to make yourself a pretty tray:
1) Use the paper inside the picture frame as an outline to cut out the paper you want to use in your tray.
2) Use the same paper as an outline to cut out the fabric. Let the fabric be a little larger since you can fold it underneath, but don't want it to be too small for the frame.
3) Wrap the fabric around the paper you cut and place it inside your picture frame.
4) Decorate your pretty new tray with your favorite perfumes or jewels.
