Don't Throw Away Old Picture Frame[Turn Into Serving Tray] !

This picture frame was a curb find. The glass still in tacked

Remove the backing of the frame.Use the backing as a template to cut wrap paper, card stock, fabric, favorite photos or even those collected cards that have special meaning.

Cards collected,will make a good back ground for a Valentine serving tray look.

Cards were placed in frame face side down,add backing and secure. To give tray a more finished look, cabinet handles added by using a drill. You can get handles at home improvement store or second hand.

The possibilities are endless! As another insert I have chosen a map.

This one of my favorite wrapping papers use for a more elegant look.

And lets not forget the comics from your paper or favorite magazine!

As you can see you can change the backing to any look you like! You can give a seasonal change,holiday or your favorite keep sake.This was fun to do and only cost was handles. Other items used were items I had on hand.

    The construction of the picture frame tray. What do you put on the back of it to keep the glass from falling out? Are these trays just for table decorations or can they be used to carry food, etc. around? I hope this isn't a really dumb question. By the way, the trays are really gorgeous!
