DIY Round Wood Serving Tray (Cricut)

This is a real fun project for all those who are tempted to work with wood, but haven’t really got the time, the patience, or the skills to actually be a woodworker. No worries. You can get pre-cut pieces of wood at your craft store. They come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. You can use these as a base and upcycle them like I did, that too under $15 and in an hour’s time!

What I really did was take a pre-sanded circular piece of wood, get some paint on, add a Vinyl design, put on some handles and that’s it- my custom made serving tray is all ready. So it is not exactly your woodworking skills that you need to to build a custom wooden serving tray. Instead this project is more about working with the Cricut machine, getting the designing done, and using that to upcycle the piece of wood that you already have. 

Who says you need to have a lot of tools and equipment to create something made of wood? There are so many options, so many projects, so much choice. You just need to choose the right kind of project to work on, and of course follow the instructions.  I loved how it turned out! Try it to believe it yourself!
