Christmas Appetizer Tree DIY Tray

I made this beautiful appetizer for Christmas Eve
but first I had to build a frame...

Homeroad is definitely not a food blog but when I saw this 

I knew it was something I needed to make.

My problem was how do I transport this
beautiful creation without having it spill out all over?

I am a crafter... not a cook and here is my solution...

I cut a large triangle out of scrap wood then 
trimmed the edges with molding.


Next I covered the wooden tray with aluminum foil...

 I cut a star from roof flashing then hot glued it to the top.

It worked! I transported my appetizer
tree to my mother's house with no worries!

Problem solved!
