How to Make a Rustic Christmas Tray

The beautiful Christmas stencil makes the tray!

I built my rustic Christmas tray as a knock off Funky Junk Interiors project.

I used Old Sign Stencils for this project, there are so many Christmas stencils to choose from and this one is my favorite.

If you click on the red links in this post you will be taken to other posts I did with several other rustic tray designs.

You can customize your look buy using all or part of the stencil like I did for this project. 

The tray is an easy build and you can find all the instructions you need on Donna's post.

I used Fusion Mineral Paint in Sterling to paint my tray. 

I love this paint because it is self sealing and there is no waxing involved.

I love this tray and I want to make one for every season!

I'm in love with the Buffalo check tray I made

Or the rustic Coffee Tray I made

Here I am using one of these awesome trays that is not only large enough to hold the lap but my coffee cup too!
