A Touch of Vintage #2 {Retro Tray Redo}

Welcome back to A Touch of Vintage!!  I'm always SO happy when you stop by.

This week I want to share a fun retro tray redo I made.

I had recently gotten a cute VW Bus Print from Lemonade Makin' Mama.

And I love it.  So I decided to spiff it up a bit. 

We used to have a Volkswagon bus growing up and there's nothing quite like 'em.  
{If you've ever owned one, you know what I mean}

Ours was pretty much always breaking down except for when my Dad was along...ha!!  

But it was so stinkin' cute

And now I wish I had it so I could redo it for photo shoots.  Ya never realize what you have till it's gone.

Retro Tray Redo

I ordered a fun plastic tray off of amazon for this project.

Then I used spray adhesive to stick the retro bus print to the tray.  I put some washi tape around on the handle and the top of the print to give it some flair.

Then I took some retro styled fabric, cut it in strips, and then tied it in knots.  And I hot glued the knots to the bottom of the tray.  I also tied a few knots to the top handle of the tray.

And then I used a strand of thick twine to make a hanger.

Pretty simple and super easy.

I love how it turned out!!  It's kinda fun and cool too.


And there it is.  Retro, vintage, a little a lot hippy, and a whole ton of fun!

Oh and remember, if you'd like to, you are welcome to share your recent vintage projects here in the linky as well.  I love to see everyone's projects. 

Thanks for joining me for another
