How to Make a Simple but Adorable Farmhouse Christmas Tray
Pottery Barn inspired Simple and Adorable Farmhouse Christmas Tray with lots of Christmas mugs.
Sometimes I'll see something either in person or online and I just keep thinking about it. That's what happened with this Farmhouse Tray. I saw one on Pottery Barn that I thought was absolutely adorable and I already had almost everything I needed to copy the look so that's what I did as part of this Modern Farmhouse Tray Blog Hop. After you read through my post 🙂 head to the bottom and see everyone else's trays plus I included a link to my inspiration so you can shop the look for yourself.
I started with a basic three-tiered galvanized tray.....
And lots of mugs! I had most of the mugs already but I did buy two more at Target a few weeks ago - the two speckled ones above. The Santa and snowman ones are from the Dollar Tree and the others I have had for a few years. The cute snowman in the back of the top photo is my favorite....such a cute little smile.
Then, I started layering! I added a Kitchen Towel (Hearth & Hand/Target) to the bottom along with black striped napkins (Heart & Hand/Target as well).
And kept going.
I added some faux greenery, candy canes,
Some bottlebrush trees I dyed two years ago,
A faux mistletoe ball and a red satin ribbon on the top.
And my favorite mug, of course.
And here was my inspiration plus links for similar items. I still think it's adorable and I am hoping to get a few reindeer mugs in the future.
Now for even more Christmas Farmhouse Tray inspiration from my friends.
