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.

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.

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.
