Hi there! I just love the look of a footed tray, and I’ve been wanting to make one for awhile, so I’m joining some of my blogging friends this week in a DIY challenge to make a footed tray. This easy footed tray takes 5 minutes, and zero carpentry skills!
You only need a couple of items to make this easy footed tray-a sign or pallet board from the craft store, something to use for feet, and a glue gun or strong glue.

~Wooden pegs, or something similar to use for feet
~Craft paint and scrapbook paper (optional)
- If your sign is blank, and you would like to paint the frame, tape it along the edges with painter’s tape, and paint the frame the desired color. (Optional)
- If you’d like, you can glue down coordinating scrapbook paper to cover the bottom of the sign. (Optional)
- Once you have achieved your desired look, and the paint and glue have dried (if you did the above two steps), flip the sign over. Glue the pegs to the bottom of the sign.
Allow the glue to dry and the pegs to firm up, and that’s it! That’s all there is to making this easy footed tray!

So cute! I love it! Thanks for adding my link to your post! It was such a fun project!
Of course! Wasn’t this so fun!
Sooo cute! I love the colours and how you styled your tray. That cocoa looks tasty too! I’m so happy to be in this challenge with you!
Wasn’t this a fun challenge! I don’t have much carpentry skills, and my hubby has been super busy, so no skills had to be required for mine!

Thank you so much, Korilyn! Haha, in full disclosure-the mug had a paper towel inside with whip cream on top! I didn’t even use hot cocoa!
