Step-by-Step Guide

1) Using your foam roller, apply two coats of Art Star Blackboard Paint to the inside of your breakfast tray. Paint the exposed sides of the tray with the Jo Sonja’s aqua paint.

2) Take a large piece of unprimed canvas. Place your tray on the canvas, and then cut around, allowing approximately 15cm around each edge. Start applying your floral paaern in a Kled layout across th canvas, by dabbing the sponge with paint onto the stencil on the fabric. Leave to dry.

3) Cut a piece of boxboard to the size of the tray, and cover with an even layer of polyester filling, around 10cm. Wrap the canvas over the polyester filling, tucking in and securing to the underside of the cardboard to create neat corners. Hold the underside in place with masking tape. When you come to the last edge, ensure that the filling is even and corners are filled with stuffing, before you tape the last edge down.

4) Apply Carnival Arts & Crafts PVA glue across the cardboard side, ensuring there is coverage in the centre and close to the edges (but not so close you get an overflow). Place your tray on top, then leave overnight to dry, with a heavy book to enure it hold tight.
