I fell in love with Made by Girl's white and silver studded tray a while back. And I just couldn't let it go. So when I saw my friend Bethany's lucite tray (Dwellings by Devore) made from an acrylic shadow box frame, I knew that's what I wanted to do with my leftover cone spike studs from my pumpkin project.
So here is what I did. I went to Michaels and picked up an 11x14 acrylic shadow box frame with a 50% off coupon. It ended up being $4.32. Great price right? I already had the studs which I bought HERE at Amazon.
I taped the frame with painter's tape so I could mark the distance of the studs and drill without scratching the acrylic.
I marked 1/2" from the sides and then 1" distance for each stud. Which ended up working out perfect. After drilling the holes I just screwed in the studs. That's it!
Pretty easy right? And cheap! But it ended up looking really high end. At least that's what I think ;)
I know some of you have different opinions!
I have lots of photos again:
The leopard print is just some scrapbooking paper that I also found at Michaels.
I really can't wait to use this tray for my Christmas decorations.
So what do you think? Are you hooked on studs as well?
