How to Make a Rustic Red Pallet Christmas Tray

I'm having so much fun making rustic Christmas trays!

I made a white Christmas tray using Old Sign Stencils by Funky Junk Interiors. 

I loved it so much I'm keeping it but that didn't stop me from making a few more. An Instagram friend requested a red tray so here it is.

I used red chalky paint for the tray and green for the trees with gold stars.

When the paint dried I used an electric sander to distress the edges then dark wax over clear wax over the top.

  2. This is so pretty and I love the color. I'v got a tray in the works too I'm just deciding on a base color, red could be a good idea.
