By now you know how much I love to stretch my stamps and use them for lots of non-card projects. Home decor items are a great way to jazz up your space – and stamps are perfect to personalizing your project.
Today I’ve got a project that is perfect for serving up those yummy summertime cocktails by simply adding some nautical pizzazz to your coffee table. The Nautical Knots background stamp provides an awesome backdrop for my DIY beverage tray and you are going to flip when you see how fun and easy it is to personalize a set of cocktail napkins.
You’d better get started planning your next cocktail party, because this project is going to put you in the mood to entertain!
Until Later Loverlies,
- Glossy spray paint in the color of your choice. Of course, if the frame is already in a color that you like, you won’t need to spray paint it!
- Sand paper to help the paint adhere to the frame surface
- Drawer pulls. You can find these at Target or at Home Depot. They have a wide selection of styles to fit your personal preference.
- Stamping Supplies! Of course, you’ll want to customize your tray and that is where your stamping supplies come in handy! Keep scrolling and I’ll show you how I gave my tray some nautical pizzazz.
Here’s a photo of the finished product! I used my Cricut to cut out my initial and placed it in the center of the tray.
As you can see here, the shadowbox frame worked perfectly for this project, since there is some depth to the tray making it great for serving drinks!
