D.I.Y Kate Spade Inspired Glitter Tray

A few weeks ago I help decorate my friends Kate Spade themed birthday! (If you haven’t check it out I will link it down below 🙂 Just about all the decorations were D.I.Y and most of the items came from the dollar tree! This was my first time helping with an event for someone other than my children. Probably the most stressful thing I’ve done so far this year but it turned out much better than I expected! These glitter trays were the perfect touch to the Kate Spade theme! How about I shut up and get to the tutorial already lol…….

Here is the list of items you’re going to need:

  • Mod Podge
  • Spray paint of your choice (I used Rustoleum Gold)
  • Glitter of your choice (I used gold)
  • E600 industrial glue (clear)
  • Dollar Tree Silver Trays
  • Dollar Tree Candle Holders
  • Gloss Sealant (Optional)
  • Sponge Brush or Paint Brush

Step One:

You’re gonna take your silver trays and spray paint them on both sides. I would suggest at least 2 coat of paint on both sides. You can always do more if needed. Please make sure you spray paint outside on a non-windy day! I learned the hard way!


Step 2:

While your freshly spray painted trays are drying. Take your Mod Podge and glitter and mix them together in a disposable container. You do not need much as a little goes a long way! Once the Mod Podge and glitter is blended evenly, take your sponge brush and start applying to your candle holder. Coat the entire candle holder with the Mod Podge mixture. (One coat of mixture is more than enough!) Once covered in mixture take your glitter and applying it all over the candle holder until you can no longer see the Mod Podge mixture. Once done, set them to the side to dry.

Step 3:

Grab your spray painted trays, (Make sure they are dry) And the Mod Podge mixture, with your sponge brush create a design of your choice onto the tray. It can be any design you want. Once you have painted your designs with the Mod Podge mixture take your glitter and apply to the design. Once finished, let all of your items dry over night.


Step 4:

After your items have dried overnight, take your E600 industrial glue (clear) and coat the very top of your candle holder. Then Make sure your tray is centered with your candle holder and press firmly on top. Let it dry overnight


Walah! You have an awesome glitter tray that you can use for just about anything! If you want, you can take some spray gloss and coat the entire tray to eliminate glitter fall out.
