HOW TO USE RESIN WITH CRICUT
I love crafting with my Cricut and I’m always looking for ways to step up my crafting game with it. One of my favorite things to make with my Cricut is home décor. Since I’m currently getting ready for fall and Halloween, I decided to try out something new for those holidays. So today, I’d like to show you how I made this gorgeous Resin using my Cricut machine. I used Cricut Permanent Vinyl for them and am in love with the way they turned out. The resin adds that very professional look to these trays. These are perfect for serving snacks at parties or simply to have on display as home décor. I found these trays for next to nothing and was ably to easily transform them into this amazing DIY home décor.

Step 5: Apply transfer tape.
Step 6: Apply both of your images down to the tray.
Step 7: Follow mixing procedure on your resin. Ours was half and half mixed together for 3 minutes.
Step 8: Pour resin on the tray. Make sure it is each to cover the entire tray. You can always easily add more resin.
Step 9: Level out your resin.
Step 10: As it sits, you can take a lighter to remove any bubbles.
Step 11: Let sit for 8-12 hours and enjoy your two different trays for this season!
I love how these trays turned out, and what about that nifty lighter trick?! Before I found that hack I was sitting there popping every little bubble and hoping it would look better. That lighter gives it a crystal clear finish. I found this little craft hack in this post. I hope you enjoyed learning how to make your own DIY Holiday Serving Trays. We love the permanent vinyl that Cricut has too, it’s a lifesaver on projects like these.
