Summer Fruit Trays

Posted by on


Make these summer trays to add color to your next outdoor meal or to brighten up a dull kitchen. They're made from standard table rounds that can be found at any hardware store.

Step 1

Two 1" x 18" table rounds
Thin metal spoons *make sure you can bend them
Rit Liquid Dye in Sunshine Orange and Scarlet
Americana Multi Surface Paints
1" screws

Step 2

Stain one table round with the RIT liquid dye in Sunshine Orange to create the orange tray
Draw a line 1 1/2" from the edge of the tray
Fill in the line with Cotton Ball Multi Surface Paint to create the rhine
With a ruler, draw your orange sections

Step 3

Paint over the lines
Fill in the center and paint on the seeds
Paint the edge with Orange Sherbert
Let dry for an hour

Step 4

Paint the second table round with Scarlet to create the watermelon tray
Draw a line 1" from the edge and fill in with Cotton Ball
Paint the edges with Turf Green
Add some Cotton Ball to the Turf Green for a lighter shade to create the stripes on the edge

Step 5

Coat both trays with Minwax Polycrylic
Mark each end of the spoon
Drill holes in each end of the spoons
Bend into a handle shape and screw into the sides of the trays
