I found some plastic jars in my storage room and thinking it would be great if I can change the look and use it for some kind of cute holders. Then I think of a fresh look, yellow color and ribbon. A little spring look with a bright summer touch. And of course with its function as a multi function holder.
From beginning, I was intended to make DIY holder anyone can do because it’s a no-sew project and easy supplies to get. So, you would only need glue to do all the work. I made a tiered ribbon like a cute yellow skirt dressed to the plastic jar and finished it of with a lemon craft foam and a flower ribbon ornament. Yes, summer meets spring as we are in spring and about to transitioning to summer soon.

Pedestal Tray From DIY Upcycle Frying Pan
I have mentioned before on my old post, DIY Upcycle Frying Pan Into Shabby Wall Decoration; that I got lots of un-used frying pan. One of it have to be out of my “junk” collection and up-graded into something useful, yes, a up-cycle project.
At first I wanted to make it into a lovely tray, but then I think it’s too deep to be a standard tray. So, I came up with the idea of making it as a pedestal tray. The shape, the diameter and the depth of the frying pan does better as a pedestal tray. A super cheap pedestal tray, because I only need to buy a leg as the pedestal. It would be better if I got something I can use to serve as a pedestal, but I don’t, so I just bought a wooden sofa leg, ready to use and cheap!
These are only what I need to make a pedestal tray :
- Un-used frying pan
- White spray paint
- A wooden sofa leg
How to up-cycle the frying pan into a pedestal tray?
- Take off the handle of the frying pan.
- Clean the entire surface, back and front of the frying pan thoroughly. Make sure it’s clean and not greasy.
- Glue the wooden sofa leg as a pedestal to the back of the frying pan. Leave it until it completely dry and firm. Now, you got your raw pedestal tray.
- Spray paint the pedestal tray evenly with white color paint. Start from the back pan and the pedestal first, let it dry then follow with the front pan and let it dry.
- The pedestal tray from un-used frying pan is finished!
Now, you can use the pedestal tray to contain some fruits, cakes, decoration ornaments, succulent arrangement, centerpiece, and more other decorative functional use that you can think of. Super easy and super cheap, right? I’m sure you have an unused frying pan laying somewhere in your home, up-cycle it and have yourself a new functional decoration. Happy up-cycling!
See you soon!
