Monogram Lucite Tray

Monograms Lucite Tray

I made a monogram lucite tray for our coffee table during my living room redo this summer.  It has come in pretty handy and I figured one would be a great gift for my aunt and uncle for Christmas.  They spend a lot of time at their pool during the summer and a tray to carry drinks out would be perfect.

I found a bright, summery coral fabric to use for the backing and a plain lucite tray from Amazon.  I cut their monogram using white adhesive vinyl and my Silhouette SD.

After applying the ‘E’ onto the tray {Make sure you reverse the letter since you applying it to the underside of the tray.} I coated the underside of the tray with Mod Podge.  If you don’t have adhesive vinyl or a Silhouette or similar cutting machine you can simply print a letter and trace onto paper and Mod Podge onto the tray.

After applying the Mod Podge, carefully place your fabric onto the underside of the tray right side down.  Let dry for about an hour and apply another coat of Mod Podge to the wrong side of the fabric.  If you don’t have fabric you could use paper, wrapping paper, wall paper, anything really.  That’s the beauty of Mod Podge!  Again, let dry for about an hour and apply one last coat of Mod Podge.

Once you have allowed the final coat of Mod Podge to dry you are all set to enjoy your tray!  You may have to trim a few frayed edges to finish.  Since we applied everything to the underside, the tray is safe to use with liquids and foods and can be wiped clean between uses.

The tray is great for entertaining or organizing items on a coffee table, dresser or desk.  They make great gifts too!
