DIY Serving Trays Part 2

I love making a crafty project that I can use for a special event but also keep around the house to enjoy for every day use. Serving trays are a great example of this.  Making a fun DIY serving tray is a great way to add a handcrafted touch to your party, but you can also place them around your home for d├ęcor. In fact that’s usually a criteria for me as to whether a party project is worth the crafting time - it either needs to be functional after the party is over, or be a gift that the guest of honor or party guests can enjoy after!

Here are some more cute ideas on serving trays you make yourself!

Thanks very much for sharing those great projects AND your "criteria" for whether a craft project for a party (such a short time-span event) is worth your time to make. I surely need to go by that rule for myself.
