Create your own personalized serving tray with this easy do-it-yourself project. Crafted from simple materials like wood, paint, and handles, you can customize the design to match your home decor or personal style. Whether you prefer a rustic farmhouse look or a sleek modern finish, the possibilities are endless when it comes to making your own tray. This DIY project is a fun way to add a personal touch to your home and showcase your crafting skills. So gather your supplies, roll up your sleeves, and get ready to create a one-of-a-kind tray that will impress your guests and elevate your entertaining game.

What you need :

  • glue
  • clothespins (the bigger ones you can find)
  • a cardboard (to use it as a support)
  • a nice picture you like or a photo to insert inside .

First of all make the support for the tray using a cardboard and cut it in the hexagonal shape.

Don’t worry it will not be a “perfect hexagon” because of the singular shape of the clothespins.

Therefore insert and glue inside a picture you like.
I choose a vintage map of my city Rome and to preserve it i put a transparent layer over it.

The dimension of one side of the hexagon depends on the clothespins you use.

Usually one clothespin is about 10 cm, for this project i used two clothespins for each side.

The support and the picture has to be in the middle of the tray. To do that make 4 layers of clothespins , two for each side.

This will make the tray more strong and with a good thickness.
