Welcome back to The Global Styler.  A monthly challenge for global inspired DIY, decor, and decorating tips.  This month’s theme is patterns and my cohosts and I have summery global decor for you to try.  My DIY is an easy dollar store moroccan inspired tray.

Since this is a long holiday weekend for us (Happy Canada Day and Happy 4th friend!) I needed something quick and easy to create.  I had already found Moroccan style peel and stick tiles that I used in our rental bath but had a couple left over.  So I decided to create a moroccan inspired tray.  It’s the perfect quick DIY and only cost me $2 and  5 minutes!

All you need is a small unfinished tray.  I found mine at the 100 yen store.

Paint it with left over paint!  I chose metallic gold.

Center a couple of peel and stick decorative tile stickers in the middle.  Aren’t these patterns great?

Trim the tiles if you need to with scissors for a good fit.

It’s a cute little tray for outdoor entertaining.  We’ve been working on our Japanese garden with Buddha.

With this long holiday weekend, I’m glad this was quick and easy!  Now I can enjoy my sparkling water outside with my family.

  1. Oh, this is so cute! I love Morocco and all its traditional settings. I have personally been there and I can assure everyone that it’s a great experience that you surely won’t regret!
    And it’s so easy to do! I never thought to use these tiles in such a simple and creative way, but thank you for the hint 😉 I’ll be sure to try it.
