Rustic Holiday Trays

I'm having a lot of fun making rustic trays 
for the holiday season. 

My rustic tray making obsession began after seeing some made by Donna from Funky Junk Interiors

Donna's trays are a work of art. I created a few trays of my own but repurposed an old piece of furniture to make them. I used a stencil from Old Sign Stencils for this one. 

You can read about the coffee tray here.

Since the first one, I've gone a little crazy making rustic trays. I've also sold a bunch of them. Like these... Click on the links to see these fun projects. 

Today, because I just can't stop, I made a few more for the holidays. This time I used a length of 12" wide wood instead of 3 - 4" boards. This made a nice smooth pallet for my stencils. 

I painted the trays with Fusion Mineral Paint. You can find a dealer near you by visiting this link

I cut vinyl stencils using my Silhouette Machine and downloads available from Silhouette. By the way, this is an affiliate link where you or Santa can purchase a Silhouette Cameo at no additional cost to you. 

This is an easy project perfect for the beginner. 

Have fun! I love my Silhouette machine!
There are so many things you can do with it!
