Even though this project is titled to be a Christmas tray in the video, the red color caught my eye and in could see this as a 4th of July summer tray in red, with white and blue accent colors. Of course you can create this in any colors to suit your decor or the holiday of your choice. It is a lovely and practical project and you could even upcycle a found tray at an estate or garage sale for even more cost effectiveness ....thanks for sharing a great idea!
