DIY catchall trays

This is a quick re-purposing idea to create something functional, fun and fashionable for your home.

Organize your clutter stylishly with these très chic catchall trays.  Use them to hold your  jewelry or simply  place them on your office desk to store coins, office stationery items like pins, pushpins, rubber bands, binder clips etc.

You won’t believe that the trays are nothing but acrylic lids of Apple EarPods travel cases.

To make these, all you need is the acrylic lids, Washi tape and some Mod Podge.

Cover the entire surface of the acrylic lids with Washi tape.  Next,  brush a thin even coat of Mod Podge and let dry.  Final step is to add a protective layer of sealant (DuraClear Gloss Varnish).  You could also use decoupage paper or  decorative paper napkins to  make these trays.  Once completely dry, use them to organize your dresser or desk.
