Dots 'n' Spots Tray

I had bought a packet of apples and used the Styrofoam packaging to make this 'dots 'n' spots tray'. I use it to hold little knick-knacks.

You need -
  • Styrofoam tray (the ones you get with veggies or fruits)
  • paints & paintbrush
  • clear varnish
  1. Paint the tray with a thick coat of purple and allow it to dry.
  2. Next, paint big pink spots.
  3. Finish by highlighting with bright yellow dots and applying an even coat of clear varnish.

As simple as that! Of course you can try different colours and patterns. A word of caution though - styrofoam is quite fragile, so you need to be careful with it!
