This one is all about having fun!
I started with this tray from the dollar store, I also saw oval trays. I think it would be cute with the oval tray and a warm winter wishes theme and snowflake dangles too (maybe next time). I chose "There's no place like home for the holidays" as my theme and the traditional red and green colors.

This is a quick and simple project:
Paint on your awesomely creative theme idea and cover with a coat or 2 of varnish. Drill a few holes around the bottom of the tray for your ornaments and dangles. I used jewelry loops to attach them. Drill a hole on each side near the top of the tray for your ribbon. Run your ribbon through, tie in a bow and ta da! You have created bling for your front door!

I would love to see your awesome creativity, add a comment and photo!
Happy Crafting! Dena


  1. Thanks for the heads up about this project. I LOVE those silver trays - I actually picked one up last year to do a dollar store craft with and I have yet to actually put anything together, so this is perfect! I will post about it at Dollar Store Crafts when we get a little closer to Christmas!

    This looks so cute & festive, and worth way more than a buck!!

  2. Okay, sorry this is so late. I just posted it at Dollar Store Crafts.

  3. This looks like it would be fun to make and it looks great!
