with yami from the Latina next door and Ashleigh from Ashleigh lauren. There will be a playlist that I will link
below with a bunch of other diy’s to recreate an expensive home décor item for less money
than the original. I have been wanting to change up my tablescape
so I decided to go with this tray from restoration hardware with the moss filling. They had several different types of troughs
and trays. This hanover tray is about the same dimensions
as the gold tray I already have – 36x14x3. Just the tray without any filling is $195. I liked how this trough had a layer of moss
filling so used that filling as my inspiration. You can buy this moss from restoration hardware
for $55. So that is a total of $250 for the tray and
moss. Well that is just too much, so I went to michaels
and found a large and small bag of moss for under $20. I looked for a bright green moss and the smaller
bag even had a bit of lime green and branches mixed in. I already had a tray and although the example
is black, I wanted to keep mine gold to match my chargers on the dining table. It would be super easy to throw a coat of
matte black paint on this though to make it match exactly. I had bought this tray a few years ago I think
from hobby lobby, so this made my copycat even cheaper, but I remember this tray was
very inexpensive – like around $15. All I did was arrange the moss in the tray,
didn’t have to secure it down or anything. I tried to take the brighter green pieces
and distribute them around and did the same with the wooden branches. This looks great just like this or you could
even add a few candle holders. You know there is one last thing that will
make this the perfect restoration hardware copycat. Those little ring details on the edges of
the tray. I found this set of 2 on amazon and they really
dress up the tray nicely. If you were going with the matte black look,
you could just spray these with the same paint you use on the tray before attaching them. I used a little hot glue and popped them on
there to finish the look. As a little bonus, I wanted to share how I
transformed this even further. When I was at michaels I saw these moss bunnies,
they are in different positions and are super cute. They were $6 each. Then I saw these pastel eggs for $5 and once
I placed these on the moss, it really dressed this tray up and now my table is ready for
spring. So I saved over $200 just doing this look
for less challenge with what I had around the house and getting some items at michaels
and amazon. Plus it was SO easy to put together. I am trying to build a positive community
