How is it already June?? The summer is going so fast. And that means 4th of July is just around the corner! 4th of July is one of our favorite holidays – a break from work, yummy cookouts, time with friends and family, and FiReWoRkS!!! But most of all, a time to remember, reflect on, and celebrate the freedom that we have today.
So we’ve been working on some fun 4th of July projects lately, and we’re excited to share this first one… a serving tray!
This is an easy DIY project that can be completed in a day, or over a weekend if you like to do bits and pieces at a time.

1. Cut & Paint 1x3s
2. Glue the Base Pieces Together
Grab your glue, clamps, and patience! You’ll want to glue and clamp your red and white pieces together as tightly and as flat as possible. Let it dry completely.
3. Attach the Sides
This can be a little trick, but we’ve found it really helps to use clamps to help secure the sides in place while driving in the screws!
4. Prep Star Stencil
6. Paint Stars!
7. Attach Handles
Once dry, attach the handles.
Ta-da! Your very festive 4th of July Tray is complete! It’s so cute! Fill it with picnic supplies and utensils, snacks, décor, or whatever suits your fancy. Have fun with it!
