DIY Glittered Gold Serving Tray supplies:
Serving tray, 2″ wide painters tape, gold glitter, glue & a paintbrush (not pictured).

Liz and Ryan found their gold serving tray at Michael’s and picked up the glitter while they were there. Glitter comes in lots of colors and varieties, so feel free to get creative with the different options. The painters tape and paintbrush can be found at any hardware store.

DIY Glittered Gold Serving Tray steps

Step #1: Use the painters tape to mask off the area of the tray that you do not want covered in glitter. Liz chose a simple diagonal stripe pattern, but feel free to experiment!
Step #2: When you’re satisfied with your design, pour some glue into a small cup. Using the paintbrush, paint the glue onto the tray making sure all of the non-masked areas are completely covered.
Step #3: Now it’s time to sprinkle glitter over the tray, covering all of the glue-covered areas.
Step #4: Pour excess glitter off of the tray and let it dry.
Step #5: The final step is to carefully remove the painters tape and voilà — your Glittered Gold Serving Tray is complete!
