Want a new way to display your snaps? Then give Style at Home's photo tray a go
Photocopy your pics first, so you can keep the originals safe. Why not theme a tray, using family wedding snaps to give as a gift for a bride and groom?
What you’ll need
Shallow-sided tray, £21, Scumble Goosie
White satinwood or eggshell paint
Old scenic and family black and white photographs
Quick Drying Matt varnish, £6.49 for 250ml, Homebase
Make sure your tray is clean and dust free. Paint the sides with satinwood or eggshell. Leave to dry, then add a second coat.
Photocopy your favourite old photographs (or try the library or a print
shop). Carefully cut out, leaving a white border around each.
Place the photographs onto the tray and, when you are happy with the
arrangement (try overlapping some), stick down with PVA glue. Leave to
dry before brushing the whole tray with a coat of varnish.
