On my birthday, in August, I spent an hour or two window shopping at all of the home decor stores around town snapping pictures for inspiration as I went. One of the things that stood out to me was a set of splatter painted plates at the Jonathan Adler store. I loved the organic look of the splattered paint, but wanted to try to put my own spin on it. So I whipped out my vinyl and got to work to create the cutest faux splatter painted lazy susan. The one I ended up making is small and perfect for cocktails or to hold condiments on a table, but this project could easily be adopted to a larger food serving lazy susan.
It really could not be more simple of a project. So simple in fact that I only had to take one process photo! Follow along for the details.
- Silhouette Cameo, cutting mat, and software
- This splatter paint cut file
- Permanent adhesive vinyl in your choice of colors (I used three shades of blue)
- Wooden Lazy Susan (I purchased mine from the Container Store, but I am sure there are plenty to be found at the thrift store)
- Spray Shellac
Yes, that is really all you need! Begin by using the cut file I created to cut your vinyl into splatter paint shapes. Then remove the shapes and apply them to the lazy susan like stickers. Be sure to overlap a few and scatter them around for the full splatter effect.
Once all your vinyl is placed, take your tray outside and spray a coating of the shellac over the entire surface. Let dry and then repeat with a second coat. This will help the vinyl stay on and give your lazy susan a nice glossy appearance. Shellac is also food safe once cured so that you can use the tray to hold food items as well.
Now it’s time to sit back, admire your craftabilities, and pour your self a pretty drink!
