DIY Wall Décor ~ Dollar Tree Style


Never in my wildest dreams have I ever thought to consider being a Martha Stewart kind of person.  That is until I met Pinterest. 

As a teen and young adult, I was the busy body type.  In school I was very active in sports, friends, I worked at Roy Rogers in between.  I literally came home to sleep and shower.  My family always had the house looking very nice and clean, but I never paid attention to the décor that made it a home.  With the creation of Pinterest, I have been lured to spending minutes and maybe even hours scrolling (research) the pages of awesome pins to this app.   Some of the pins were costly and difficult to re-create so I scrolled past with like a “Like”.  Then I was hit with a Dollar Tree Décor Board and my eyes were open to the fact that I too can have a beautifully decorated home as when I was younger – on a budget.

Here’s one of my favorite DIY that I stumbled upon as a re-pin on Pinterest.  Check out the video below.  Below that are the written steps to follow to make your own.



Supplies Needed:
Krylon Paint (Michael’s, Joann’s, A.C. Moore)
3 Etched Nickel plated serving trays (Dollar Tree)
Main Street Wall Creation Stickers (Dollar Tree)
Picture hanging Kit (Dollar Tree)
Glue Gun and sticks (Michael’s, Joann’s, A.C. Moore)





The very first thing I did was remove the price stickers from the back of the serving trays.  I did this by just wetting a paper towel and leaving on top of the label  for a few minutes.  that made it easier to peel off.



Then I went outside with the trays and spray paint to paint the nickel plated serving trays. Side bar - NEVER EVER EVER spray paint in your house without proper ventilation.  I gave the trays a couple coats to get the look that I wanted.  I let it dry outside while I went inside to tape a different YouTube video.

Once dry, I applied the Wall Street Main Creation stickers on the tray giving it a slight rub to insure that it adhered to the trays.

On the back of the trays, I attached a wall hanging unit using a glue gun.  Although I didn't measure to get the middle of the try, you may want to do that for a picture perfect hanging.

The entire project costs me $5.00 outside of the glue gun and can of paint (which I already had). Incidentally,  I used a coupon for both of those items.  

Only thing left after gluing the wall hanging kit is to locate the perfect spot and hang.

NOTE:  The stickers do not have glue on the back.  If you make a mistake placing them on the trays, you can easily peel it right back off.  I created my project about 5 months ago and the stickers have not loosened or come off yet.


This is an easy breezy project that even your teenagers can do.

I posted this project on YouTube 3 months ago and never did I imagine that it would give me OVER 12,000 views.  For this I am grateful.

Take a look and tell me what you think.
