Have you ever seen a craft and said to yourself... "BRILLIANT!" or "Why didn't I think of that?"
This happened to me the other day on Pintrest. I saw a couple of pins about square tiles being used as trays or to display objects on.
I am here to tell you that it is an easy and cheap craft, (about $10.00) and something that would make a great gift.
Here is what you'll need:
1. A piece of tile, your choosing. I chose one that is rectangle. You can choose any kind of floor tile as long as it is one solid piece.
2. Handles. I used regular drawer handles
3. Glue I used E6000 and a construction epoxy that you mix
4. Rubber or some sort of feet for the bottom
All of these items I got at Home Depot for about $10.00. The tile piece is marble and was $1.93. The rubber feet were 10 in a pack for $1.98. The two drawer pulls were $2.98 each for $5.96. I had the glue's on hand.
Step 1 - Using the E6000 glue your rubber feet to the bottom of your tile. Since my tile is a rectangle I used 6 feet on the bottom. The rubber feet did have an adhesive backing but I wasn't sure if it would stick to the tile bottom.
As you can see above my rubber feet weren't flat but around 1/4 inch high. I wanted my tray to sit off the surface a bit.
Step 2 - Using the epoxy I mixed the glue and used it to glue the handles to the tile, one on each side.
Now I've got a nice cheese tray and it looked great on my Mother-In-Law's black countertops.
This was a great and inexpensive craft. I am going to try and find some granite remnants and make one out of granite for a friend for Christmas!
Thanks for stopping by. I hope everyone has a great week. I'll be back next week but until then, STAY SAFE!
