I’m a sucker for a pretty, festive beverage, especially when it’s served on a pretty, festive serving tray!
This easy DIY serving tray is my favorite piece of holiday decor this year! I am seriously loving handmade items this holiday season. This tray was so easy and adds the perfect amount of personal touch to any holiday dinner or party!
I used a simple wooden tray, a pencil, black paint marker, and spray polyurethane.
First, I drew my design on in pencil. I decided on a few fun Christmas trees, but the options are endless! A bunch of different snowflakes would be great!
My lines aren’t straight and it is obviously hand drawn, which is exactly the look I was going for.
Once I was happy with the placement and design, I went over my pencil with a paint marker. These things are so cool. Just think of the possibilities!
To finish it off, I covered the whole thing with a couple coats of spray polyurethane. The polyurethane with protect the tray from any spills and really brings out the natural color and grain of the wood.
I love how it turned out! I can’t wait to use it for our next holiday party!

Thanks Kari! What a darling idea for a serving tray over the holidays! It would be great to leave Santa’s cookies out on too! Kari has even more great ideas like these:

This is such a cute idea! I’m always roaming the wood aisle at the craft store dreaming up things I can do with all those blank canvases. Thanks for the inspiration!
