If you are like me and never have enough serving trays, Here is a easy DIY Serving tray for the holidays. I love cooking and organizing parties with the family. This tray is perfecting for serving guests drinks and appetizers on it.
Having the right accessories for the holiday makes a big difference while entertaining. A stylish party is what I want my guests to experience. So whether it’s one, two or five guests, a fashionable serving tray is a must-have. This year I’ve been in the Champagne-mood, so I will be serving some nice bubbling to my guest for the holiday season.
Speaking of bubbly here are some fancy DIY cork stoppers with left over corks. It comes in handy.
My design for this tray is on the minimalistic side. I wanted it to go with everything in my home and not be over done.
I have a few trays around, but this idea of making my own tray sounded fun. It was the perfect project that I can make easily without going nuts. I headed to Lowes.

I wanted something easy to handle when I am walking around with the tray. My goal was to ensure that it was nice looking and functional.
Make sure the handles are light weight.
The wood should not be heavy, since you are going to be using it as a serving tray.

- Handles or pulls ( 5 inch) I found some at Lowes or Amazon has them too.
- Felt tips: For covering the screws. It protects your furniture.

How To Make The DIY Serving Tray
Place the supplies on a clean service. Make sure the wood is clean and ready to be drilled.
