Dollar store tray painted and spruced up for Christmas

In anticipation of my Christmas party coming up this Saturday I made this tray as a craft project for the ladies who will be coming. Using examples of some dollar store tray ideas that I had seen on Pinterest, I combined a few paint techniques and added some leaf ribbon of my own. There was also a recipe for making your own chalkboard paint in any color that I used which was great because it's easy and a heck of a lot less toxic. Thanks to Curbly for that great paint recipe!

Now I need to go back to cleaning and decorating the house which seems to take forever. Well at least I'll be done early and can relax for the rest of the holidays.

Thanks for visiting!
