Mini Tiered Tray Home Signs

These adorable tiered tray signs took minutes to make and are perfect to decorate a tiered tray for any season!

First, I started with 2 frames I found at the Dollar Tree. 

When I got them home I popped out the sign, which I realized later was a tile!

You can paint over the words on the tile or just flip it around and use the back which is what I did. 

You can also just paint the back when you're finished.

I cut out a house shape out of card stock and traced it onto my tile with a fine point sharpie marker

Using a transfer word from a pack I also bought at the Dollar Tree, I added the word HOME inside the house shape just by rubbing it onto the tile.

I also made another sign that said GATHER.

I added a tiny heart with a fine tipped red Ultra Fine Sharpie marker.

Next, I painted the frame inside and out with a pretty green paint called Brook by Fusion Mineral Paint.

When the paint on the frame dried, I lightly sanded and distressed the frame with fine grit sandpaper. 

I used Super Glue Gel that I got from the dollar store to pop the tile back into the frame and I was done. 

The Super Glue Gel is amazing on many projects.

This process can be reproduced for the holidays, add a little holly leaf, shamrock, or carrot, instead of a heart and dress up your tiered trays.
