So excited to share this Dollar Tree glass cutting board craft using pretty lemon napkins and mod podge. These small cutting boards are perfect for slicing fruit or used as trivets. With summer entertaining there are so many ways you can use these inexpensive glass trays.
Hello! Michelle back from Our Crafty Mom sharing another quick and easy glass cutting board craft today with a fun lemon theme! Have you seen how popular lemon decor continues to be this summer? It is literally at every home store, craft store, and all over Pinterest. I think because it is so bright and sunny. It’s the perfect addition to your summer decor.

You can find the small glass cutting boards at the Dollar Tree. They are usually in the section with serving utensils and kitchen supplies. Sometimes, they even have some in the section with the candles, as they make a good candle tray too!

glass cutting board tips:
separate the napkin layers
You only need to use the top layer of the napkin. Separate the layers carefully removing the printed layer.
add mod podge directly to the glass
When working with napkins and mod podge, the napkins are very fragile, especially because you are only using the top layer, so it’s important to be very gentle when adhering them to the glass.
Place the napkin on the bottom of the glass cutting board. That way you can use the cutting board top without worrying about damage to the napkin, and you can still see the pretty lemon design.
It’s best to add the mod podge directly to the glass and lightly tap the napkin onto the cutting board.
use plastic to smooth out wrinkles
A great tip I learned recently, was to use either plastic wrap, or a plastic bag to smooth out the wrinkles. Not only does the plastic work great, but it is less likely to cause tears in the napkin than using your fingers.
Continue to smooth the wrinkles out carefully with a plastic bag. You will be surprised at how well this process works. Let it dry.
All that’s left now is to trim any napkin from the sides of the glass. You can use a little piece of sandpaper to clean it up too.
