ORANGE SERVING TRAY

Serve your drinks in style with this tribute to the Sunshine State. That tropical drink will taste even better when resting on this irresistible DIY.


Supplies:

  • Round unfinished wooden plaque
  • Sandpaper
  • Primer
  • Paint in white, orange and cream
  • Brush
  • Varnish (optional)
  • Electric drill
  • Screwdriver
  • 2 handles
  • 4 screws

Directions:

Lightly sand wooden plaque with sandpaper then wipe with a damp cloth to remove any sawdust.

Apply a coat of primer and allow to dry completely.

Once the primer has dried, apply a coat of white paint over the entire plaque. Let dry completely, then repeat with additional coats of paint, if necessary. Paint about 1 inch of orange around the top of the plaque, along with the edge and bottom. Paint six orange triangles, to resemble orange slices, in the center, leaving about 1/2 to 3/4 inch of white on all sides. Let dry completely, then repeat with additional coats of paint, if necessary. Using a pointed-tip brush, paint “seeds” in various spots inside orange triangles using cream paint. Let dry completely.

If desired, apply a coat of varnish and let dry completely.

Using an electric drill and screwdriver, attach handles on opposite sides of the top.

Enjoy!

STAY SAFE: Please ensure this DIY is done in a well-ventilated area.

ORANGE & FIELD TIP: If you’re having trouble finding an unfinished wooden plaque, a round bamboo or wooden cutting board would work, as well.
