Lucite Square Tray

A lucite tray can spruce up any room. Plus lucite accents are great to use in small spaces. The see-through material creates an illusion and appears to take up less space.

Just to be up front, this lucite tray wasn’t exactly cheap to make. However it was cheaper than buying it in store. The entire project cost about $50.

Here’s what you need:

Measure, mark and drill holes into the plastic sheets. Attach the handles to the sheets. You may have to adjust the screw length depending on the thickness of the sheet. My handles came with break-away screws.

The whole project takes about 30 minutes. Add decorative accents and enjoy!

Bling for your house plants

These gold geometric objects are great for table or window decor. Below are the directions for a super basic triangle shape but feel free to put your own spin on it.

Here’s what you need:

  • Malleable Wire
  • Any type of straws (reusable plastic, paper, regular plastic)
  • Metallic Spray Paint
  • Scissors

Let’s get started. Lay out your straws and give them a good coat of paint.

*you can also wait to spray the entire object at the end

 

Now take three of those straws and thread wire through all three. Then bend the wire so that you end up with a triangle.

Tie of the end.

Take that triangle and add three more straws. Make sure each straw has enough extra wire on each side to tie it all together.

Notice below that I added glue where the ends meet. I suggest  not adding glue. I think the triangles looked better without.

ANYWAY-Give it another coat of paint.

Here’s what you need:

Measure, mark and drill holes into the plastic sheets. Attach the handles to the sheets. You may have to adjust the screw length depending on the thickness of the sheet. My handles came with break-away screws.

Some DIY projects added window moulding to line the outside of the tray. I ordered the WRONG moulding so instead I had to improvise. I took apart an old cheap Walmart plastic poster frame that I had lying around.

I sprayed the frame pieces, cut to size and then used gorilla glue to adhere the plastic frame to the tray.

My friend came to visit and I set mine up in my spare bathroom with sample toiletries for her.
