Hey Hey! It’s time for another challenge with my bloggy friends! Previously we chose one itme for us all to start with a then got creative. We had a Crate Challenge in September and a Faux Pumpkin challenge in October. For November we’re going with Wood Slices!
These little wood slices you can get at most craft stores are so much fun to work with. I’ve had an especially busy month co-authoring a book (more to come on that later), Fall decorating, three kids in three different schools, plus much more! So, I decided to repost an old project that you may not have seen. It’s a Double Tiered Wood Slice Serving Platter!
If you entertain, you know serving platters can be pricey and they can be boring unless you want to pay big bucks for the super nice ones. I decided since the holidays were coming up, to make my own! It was easy too! This tray is great if you’re having a little get together for appetizers and drinks.
I used one large slice and one small slice for this project. I sanded each slice a little to make sure they were extra smooth and used a wire brush to get all of the dust off.
Then I used food grade mineral oil to treat each slice. Next, I used hot glue and metal hanger tape with a few tiny screws to attach the copper pipe holder to each tier. You can get the pipe holders in the plumbing section of home improvement stores.
Voila! All done! I’ve used this about 4 times now and it’s holding up great and it is certainly a conversation starter! I think it’s so cute! Here it is styled with a lot of my Thanksgiving Tablescape decor.
I store it on the Painted Utility Shelf in my Dining Room. It’s a little Rustic and a little quirky.
