Add a fun spring DIY printer tray to your spring decor with this simple craft project. Add your own spin to this project with an assortment of papers and small spring themed animals. This one would also be great for getting the kids involved. Let them pick the animals and placement in the box.
- Wood Printer Tray Shadow Box
- Paint in Early Spring Green
- Scrapbook Paper
- Mod Podge
- Birds in a Nest
- Mini Butterflies
Start by painting your printer’s tray with the green paint. You can leave the bottom of each compartment unpainted as shown in the picture below. I used one good coat on my tray but two may be needed. Be sure to allow your paint to dry in between coats. Be sure to also paint the wood on the top of the plastic cover.
Cut various papers to size using scissors or a paper cutter. Dry fit them into the tray before using the Mod Podge to secure into place. After your dry fit, just brush on a thin coat of Mod Podge on the back and put each paper into the proper slot in the tray.
This is a fun shadow box for adults and kids alike. Grab your supplies and make your own spring DIY printer tray for your spring decorating. I know we could all use a touch of spring in our homes right about now.
