DIY Chevron Tray (with Decoupage & Scrapbook Paper)


DIY Chevron Tray

This is such an easy and inexpensive project. You can make your own Chevron Tray. It is so easy.

I was able to use this 40% Off a Single Item coupon at my local craft store…so the tray cost me around $5. (You can grab your craft store coupons here)The scrapbook paper under a $1. I had the Mod Podge (decoupage) on hand…but if you don’t you can grab a bottle for $5-$10 depending on the size. I also sealed the wood with poly. That is optional. I suppose you could seal with mod podge.

What you will need:

Wood Tray (unfinished)

Paint (I used acrylic)

Scrap Book Paper

Mod Podge

Polyurethane (optional)

(Straight edge or scissors, paint brushes)



Paint your tray the color(s) of choice. I did several coats. Allow to dry completely.

Once the paint is dry, you will want to cut your scrapbook paper to fit the bottom of the tray.

Place a coat of Mod Podge on the bottom of the tray and position your scrapbook paper.

Then apply a thin coat of Mod Podge on top of the scrapbook paper.

Repeat if needed.

Allow to dry overnight and then you can seal the painted wood with a coat of poly if you like. This will give the tray a shine. You could also use your Modpoge to give it a shine if you use the GLOSS version.


There are so many possibility for this project because of the the variety of scrapbook paper out there.

You could even do a kid friendly tray. I think these would also make a great gift.


And if you like it…don’t forget to pin it! (The Button to Pin is directly below)

      Thanks so much Ruth. I really wanted a chevron tray…but didn’t want to have to stencil the design. You gotta love Mod Podge. 🙂 Thanks for much for hosting and for taking the time to come by and leave such a kind comment. Have a great day! -Jessica
