Here's a cute easy DIY idea for a paper guest towel tray that's interchangeable. Make your guests feel welcome in your home with this personalized tray featuring towels in a favorite decorative color or monogrammed with an initial. This tray is made from a 15 1/2"x7" picture frame with attached feet and handles that flaunts a changeable guest towel pattern that's actually a cardboard insert decoupage with a matching guest towel. Additional space on the tray is available to add a decorative homemade diffuser.
- Frame w/glass
- Wooden balls
- Paper guest towels
- Mod podge
- E6000 glue
- Decorative handles
- Acrylic paint
Next, separate the plain layers of the guest towel and mod podge the paper napkin onto the cardboard, smoothing it out and let dry.
Next, paint the balls and let dry. After drying, glue the balls onto each corner of the frame base. Check to make sure the balls aren't preventing being able to easily insert the cardboard into the frame without having to bend it.
Insert the glass, decoupage cardboard and apply the frame backing.
Glue decorative handles on each end.
There's enough space on the tray to have a easy to make decorative diffuser.
Take a small glass or ceramic container with a narrow opening. Pour in 1/4 cup of carrier oil like coconut oil or almond oil and add 20-25 drops of your favorite essential oils, mixing them together. I like the smell of ginger and lemon! Place the reed diffuser sticks in the container. It will take a while for the oil to travel up the sticks so turn the sticks upside down to quicken.
The tray is interchangeable just by switching out the look with different decoupage paper towel patterns like this monogrammed one.
Makes for a great hostess gift too!
