‘Tis the season of entertaining and gift giving and I wanted to show you this super simple DIY serving tray project. I made this tray for a good friend that is an amazing hostess. She frequently has a house full of people and especially loves gourmet hot chocolate bars for family night.
I had an idea to make a cute little serving tray for her to use on family night that would be functional and fun and here is what I came up with:
This is an incredibly simple project that will take about an hour to make. You can totally customize your tray with any words or symbols and paint it in any color or stain you like. Versatile is the name of the game here. I stained mine a distressed white and added hot cocoa in red. The cost of the wood and handles for this project was about $14. I used stain I had on hand and the red paint was probably another $1 or so. Not bad at all! You would easily pay double that to purchase a similar tray in a retail store.
