DIY Melon Tray
One of the best ways to spend a sunny afternoon? With a picnic of course! A picnic needs two important things: yummy snacks and drinks, and a cute look. In this easy and fun DIY, we’re showing you how to turn a plain tree disk into this fun and functional melon tray!
Fill the holes or imperfections using a wood filler. Ones it’s dry sand the tree disk using sandpaper.
Start by paint the outer line in a green color. Let it dry for 30 minutes.
Paint the inner circle red or dark pink. Leave a part between the green and red unpainted. Let it dry.
Use black paint to randomly paint the melon seeds. Let it dry.
Add 1 or 2 layers of lacquer to protect the paint against stains. This way, the tray is easy to clean.
Apply the handles to the tray. You can use whatever you have laying around, like I did.
Make sure your tray is balanced when you pick it up by the handles.
Enjoy your newly painted, happy tray this summer! And if you really want the perfect picnic vibe, you can also make some cute extra fruit themed coasters.
