Re-purposed Tray to Menu Board
On a different trip to Deseret Industries I found this metal tray. I liked the edge, but not the mod podged paper insides. I removed all of that using water to get the last of the mod podge off. My daughter was saying she wanted to have a chore board and I thought this would make a cute one. However, when I showed it to her, she said it would be an adorable Menu Board for her kitchen. So now it is!
Her kitchen is red, white and black. I used my Make-the-Cut software and designed the circles with the day of the week. I then printed them on the red and white polka dot paper. Then I cut them with the Print n' Cut feature in Make-the-Cut. Next I used E-6000 to glue the circles to the flat glass marbles. I waited 24 hours and added the large magnets on the back, also using E-6000. I did need to trim the paper circles to fit the magnets better because, as you can see, they are not perfectly round so my circles hung over in a few spots.
I painted the inside of the tray with chalkboard paint and put the magnets on it and now she has a Menu Board she can re-use every week! I threaded red ribbon through the top holes so she can hang it in her kitchen. I think it turned out just great! Thanks so much for taking a peek and have a wonderful day!
