Easy DIY Mod Podge Serving Tray Craft Project
The beauty of Mod Podge is that it is a great decoupage agent that is non-toxic, dries clear and quickly–and cleans up easily, too! Maybe that’s why so many crafters get a kick out of using it to upcycle old and dated trays and platters.
Crafter Note: Mod Podge is not water-proof. Even Mod Podge Outdoor isn’t completely water-proof but water-resistant. To protect your tray use a couple of layers of water-based outdoor (0r Enamel) acrylic sealer.
1. Lay out your design in your tray and cut to size, as needed.
2. Next roll or brush on Mod Podge to the surface of the tray.
3. Apply your design.
4. Smooth out any bubbles.
5. Using an utility knife, trim the edges to fit.
6. Then apply 2 coats to seal the tray.
7. Allow to dry and cure completely, approximately 24 to 48 hours.
