I started off painting it with Anita's acrylic paint, in gold
Next i painted it with a dark green acrylic paint and smudged it until i liked the effect
I then lined the tray with Adhesive fabric
then platted 3 different coloured bakers twine, stuck it around the inside of tray, leaving quite a bit to tie in a bow and attach to top of tray handle with buttons on the ends.
