A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas – Day 1

                  Welcome to A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas 

I am thrilled to be able to bring you A WandafulThing 12 Days of Christmas for the 4th year in a row. I’m excited as this year the theme of all of my posts will be about thrifted, gifted (diy) and vintage items as Christmas presents.

I will be posting a new post every other day, starting today (November 20th) ending on December 12th – how fitting!

My first present is going to be a gifted (DIY) idea repurposing a wooden tray I found at  Goodwill for $2.00 . I really wish I had found a partridge to go with my pear tray (groan), if I had, I might not have painted it but instead made corny jokes all through the season.

I would have spray painted the tray outside but in my neck of the woods it is already winter soooo I hand painted it (6 coats) with white craft paint.  It took forever to cover the pears. Maybe I should have found that partridge.

 

I used my Cricut to make the vinyl cutout.  I wanted it simple so I went with “Be Jolly” in red vinyl.  I found the free svg on LoveSVG.com

If you don’t have a Cricut you could stencil words or buy stickers to embellish. I love the way it turned out.  This tray is very versatile and can have many uses.  I chose to add a couple of candles and some sprigs of holly with the tray as part of the gift.  I sure hope the recipient likes it as much as I do.

I cannot wait for you to come back and see all the fabulous things I will be giving as gifts this year.

Thifted, gifted and vintage gifts are A WandafulThing, unique and one of a kind.

  13. The tray looks lovely. Did you have to do a lot of sanding? What type of brush? Foam? Will be looking for wooden trays at goodwill now!

    • I used a foam brush and was in a rush so only sanded after the first coat – probably should have lightly sanded after all of them, lol might not have taken 6 coats. I look for wooden trays all the time. I have two waiting in the wings 🙂
