DIY Fall Upcycled Gold Tray

This fall or my friends at UK call it autumn; I made more gold fall decorations. I love the fancy look of a gold decoration. Gold color elevates your room decor, the ambience and make a great focal point. Don’t be afraid to use a little gold on your room, just don’t use it too much; less is more. I always believe in that. Anyway, my DIY Fall project this time is an upcycled gold tray that I made from a biscuit can. Let’s check out how I made this simple gold tray.

This simple fall DIY upcycled gold tray is like a plain canvas that you can use to be paired it with many fall ornaments or even non-related fall season’s ornament at all. So, it’s a great diy decoration you can use in any season as long as you have a dash of gold in your room decor theme. Use it to hold a vase, use it to hold some succulents, use it to hold some fake metal fruits, or use it to hold some pine cones or acorns for a fall decor like I did on the picture; where I used my gold acorn made of pistachio’s shells.

Things To Prepare

I love the idea of simple DIYs, simple means easy to find materials; preferred upcycled materials, not using many kind of materials and inexpensive materials. And so does this DIY Upcycled Gold Tray for Fall, it’s a simple and easy to make. Here are a very short list of supplies that you need to prepare to make this Gold Tray:

  • Biscuit tin can (round shape)
  • Gold spray paint
  • White spray paint
  • Pipe holder (small size) The pipe holder size is following the tin can size to get a good proportion between the tray and the tray holder.
  • Instant glue ( or you can also use silicone glue)

How To Make

A simple DIY also means it’s super easy and quick to make. Same as this upcycled gold tray, these are the super short list of steps to make it :

  1. Clean a round shape of biscuit can and spray paint the inner side with white spray paint.
  2. take a pair of small metal pipe holder and glue it to both sides of the biscuit can. Wait until it’s dry.
  3. Once the glue has dried, spray paint it with gold color evenly. Let it dry completely. And you finish!

This gold tray is great to sit on your coffee table or a corner table. You can make a big size, medium or small depends of how big your biscuit can is. Just be creative with the look, if you prefer more is more, you can add decorative ornaments on the gold tray, just use your creativity. Whereas I like my DIY Fall Upcycled Gold Tray stay simple.

How To Make Your Home Naturally Smell Good With A Can Of Coffee Beans

How to make your home naturally free from bad odor and smell good? One of the easiest thing to do is using a can full of roasted coffee bean. The aroma from the roasted coffee bean will neutralized most of any bad smell. Grounded coffee would also does the trick. You can put it in the living room, kitchen or even bathroom where sometimes it’s where the bad smell is coming from.

A coffee bean is naturally a seed from a coffee plant and the source the cup of your morning coffee. Coffee bean is actually a seed, it referred as “bean” because of the resemblance with a real bean. Both coffee bean and grounded coffee can be used to neutralize odors. Coffee bean work wonderfully in emitting a strong odor and can over power by neutralizing or absorbing other strong odors like vomit, garlic, onions, urine and even dead animals.


Great for eliminating bad odors, coffee beans have also do wonders in cleaning your smelling palate from your nose.  That is why some perfume stands would prepare a can of coffee beans for you to smell after you have smell a perfume. This will allowing you to continue to smell fragrance after fragrance when selecting a perfume. This would also apply to ease a bad smell from your smelling palate.

Having coffee beans as natural way to get rid of bad smell in your home would be better if it’s presented in a pretty way. Use the coffee beans as decoration element to your home. How do I make my home smell good and in the same time use it as decoration? I placed the coffee beans on an upcycled food tin can which I have painted and decorated.


How to make a can of coffee beans as the natural bad smell killer and a decoration as well? I made the coffee beans can as a coastal theme decoration. And here are the things I used to do the upcycled project:

  1. Tin can ( I upcycled a small tuna can)
  2. Light blue acrylic paint
  3. Hemp rope
  4. A white seashell
  5. Glue
  6. Roasted coffee beans


Easy steps to make the coffee beans can are:

  1. Clean the used tin can and paint it with light blue paint. Leave it ti dry.
  2. Tie a hemp rope on the tin can’s mouth, make a bow and finished it with a white seashell by using some glue.
  3. Fill in some roasted coffee beans until it’s full.
  4. Finished! Put it in any place you want the natural coffee beans to work its wonders in eliminating unwanted smell.


Picture25If you want your home to be  not just free from bad odors but also smells like morning coffee, you can put a candle in the middle of the coffee beans inside the decorated can. Some say, it would smell incredible with vanilla scented candle. It would light up your home with amazing smell. Great for party and gathering!
