Thrift Store Halloween Tray

A couple of weeks ago I saw a fantastic Halloween Owl Plate by Bonnie with Uncommon Designs. She used an owl silhouette very similar to the owl cutouts that I purchased last year from the dollar store. After seeing her design I knew that I had all the things I needed to make something similar.

This is what I came up with -

Halloween, Owl, Thrift Store


The base is a plastic Christmas tray that I picked up at our local thrift store for 25 cents -


Here's what you need to make your own Halloween Owl tray -

1. 1 sheet scrapbook paper cut to size (I inked the edges too for added depth)

2.  Mod Podge

3. Owl cut outs

4. Plastic tray or plate

Just adhere the paper to the tray, adhere the owl on top, cover with Mod Podge, let dry and add a hanger or magnets on the back.

I decided to add magnets and hang it on the fridge and it took all of about 5 minutes to put together.


Halloween, Thrift Store, Owl

My $ store pumpkin keeps popping up in all my Halloween posts lately - just keeps butting his way in.

Thanks Bonnie for the inspiration! Happy Owloween!
