Summer is also the season of hosting backyard barbecues and dinner parties. And if you plan on having friends over soon, take your hostess skills up a a few notches with this custom, one-of-a-kind D.I.Y. serving ware. From brunch to an afternoon tea, appetizers to desserts, this D.I.Y. display will steal the show at your next get together. And it only cost us about $20!
D.I.Y. ABSTRACT + MODERN DESSERT DISPLAY PROJECT DURATION: 30 MINS
- Glass dessert display
- Acrylic paints
- Spray paint
*This painting technique works on any clean glass surface
1. Flip your glass serving dish upside down and wipe clean. (We deconstructed a plain glass + metal dessert tier from IKEA)
2. Start by layering on paint! We chose to do simple + minimal brush strokes in different weights to create an abstract feel. Let dry.
3. Layer on a final coat of paint (or two) to create the background color of your plate!
4. Let dry completely before popping it into the oven at about 250 degrees for 20 mins to set the paint.
Optional: We added a quick coat of metallic gold spray paint to the formerly silver hardware of our glass + metal dessert tier.
We want to see how you D.I.Y. your next get together! Be sure to tag us @thepapercraftpantry so we can see your D.I.Y. dessert displays!
