Vintage Tray & Sweets Cups

Something pretty for Mom!

Mother's Day Gift Idea # 3
If you read our previous post, you will recall our Dollar Store Happy Birthday Treat Tray project!
 Here is our second tray, perfect for your Mother's Day sweets!
If you are hosting a little Mother's Day gathering for mom, serve her some sweet treats and then gift her the tray afterwards!

We used the same technique on this tray as we did on the Happy Birthday Treat Tray here, with the exception: we spray painted the tray and candle stick using a color called "Dover", to give it more of a vintage inspired look.

The treat cups we found at Michael's, and embellished them with scrapbook paper cut with a scallop punch, and then layered with a fancy butterfly we had in our craft stash!
We filled the treat cups with store bought little cakes.

Mothers love receiving homemade gifts from their children, and this will be one she will love receiving and using for years to come!
We hope we have inspired you!
Remember , keep it Homespun!

It is God who arms me with strength,
And makes my way perfect.
