Brady Bunch Cheese Tray- Redone!

             Mrs. Brady called and she wants her cheese tray back!                


                                     



Picked this tray up at Goodwill on the serious cheap (can't remember the exact price...less than $5) 

I cut some fabric I got at Hobby Lobby to fit the size of the lovely wheat plate thingy.  Then I used modge podge to adhere it to the tin plate.



I spray painted the wood with a laquer spray paint so it will have a good amount of protection. 

And Tada! 



I picked up a pillar candle holder from World Market for $1.20 to protect the fabric when cutting the cheese (pardon the expression...there was no getting around it!).



Whatcha think?  You like?  Super easy!  And the fabric goes with the tray that is in my etsy shop!
