Cross-Stitch Coffee Table Tray

102368808Designer: Jaydee Decker

A metal perforated baking tray from a kitchen-supply store serves up a trendy cross-stitch plus sign and makes a handy place to corral odds and ends.


Materials:

  • 13×18″ perforated metal tray
  • Painters tape
  • Spray paint: yellow and peach
  • Yarn needle
  • Yarn: magenta

1. Tape off one-third of tray from top to bottom and through one vertical row of holes. In a well-ventilated area, spray-paint one side of tray yellow; let dry. Peel off painters tape and apply a new line of tape aligned with the spray-painted line. Spray remaining side of tray peach; let dry. Remove tape.

2. Find the center of tray. Following the chart, below, cross-stitch the design using yarn needle and magenta yarn. Leave a long tail on back of tray for first and last stitches, weave tails under previous stitches; trim ends.
