Decoupage White Pedestal Tray With Vintage Blue Roses – DIY

Decoupage White Pedestal Tray With Vintage Blue Roses – DIY

This project is a marriage between my two old projects of Vintage Blue Roses Artwork and Pedestal Tray from DIY Upcycle Frying Pan. I made a plain white pedestal tray, that gives a porcelain look, but then I think it would look prettier if I paint something on the tray. Instead of painting something, I decided to use my vintage blue roses art paper as a decoupage to my pedestal tray.

It is a very simple steps to do for decoupage project. You just need :

  • A decoupage object ( I used my vintage blue roses artwork )
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Clear Paint
  • Brush
  • Subject to decoupage with (mine is diy white pedestal tray)


And those simple steps to decoupage my pedestal tray are:

  1. Cut-out the decoupage object carefully.
  2. Clean thoroughly the surface of the tray area that wanted to be decoupaged. Make sure it is clean and dry.
  3. Glue cut out decoupage object onto the tray of the area you wanted. Let it dry.
  4. Paint the decoupage area with clear paint evenly. Let it dry.
  5. Finished! I got myself a pretty pedestal tray with decoupage vintage blue roses.


Very easy and pleasy project! You can substitute the decoupage object with anything else, like paper wrap, tissue napkin as the favorite one, map, drawings, etc. Mine is using my vintage blue roses artwork on sketch paper, because I love to choose my own object and sketch paper is very thin, so it is a great media for decoupage project.



I’m happy with this project, I got myself a new pedestal tray with vintage blue roses that i love so much. Hope you inspired to make your own project and follow me for more DIYs!

Make your creativity happens!

See you next month!

Vintage Blue Roses Artwork

Vintage Blue Roses Artwork

I kind of into floral drawing right now. I paint blue hydrangea, then sunflower, and last time it was pink orchid artwork. This time I drew and colored blue roses with vintage style. It has been a long time since I wanted to draw or paint roses, but I keep pending it. Maybe because I consider rose as a great challenge. It is easy to sketch roses but to me,  it is challenging to color or paint it. It is hard to play with the gradation of the petals, how to make it looks like it’s blooming, 3D look not flat. But I quite pleased with the result, but maybe next time I would paint roses in oil color, another personal challenge for me.


I always love the blue roses in vintage look. The blue vintage style we find in china plates, tea pots, tea cups, and so on. Love, love, love it! So, I would try to imitate that look on my artwork. I used watercolor pencils for the coloring media. I used blue monochromatic shades to achieve the vintage look. I had a sketch paper to draw and color my artwork, because I consider it as a great media to have the colors pop which automatically makes the object emerge. And moreover, it would be a perfect pattern for a decoupage project.



Wanna try yourself? If you have trouble in hand-sketching the roses, you can stencil it from other roses picture and then you can color it in the style of any vintage; in my case is vintage china style. So, enjoy my vintage blue roses artwork, hope you’re inspired and work out your creativity.


Creativity rose up!

 See you!
