I love how a small jar of chalkboard paint can be used for so many stylish and creative projects. Decorating with chalkboards is not new but always holds its momentum as it’s like a decoration that can be changed into different ways every day.

Today I’m going to feature chalkboard trays – great DIY projects that are not only fun and creative but are also entertaining for kids and guests at dinner parties. These chalkboard trays could be used for placing food and drinks but can also used as door wreaths or a little message board in the hallway.

If you are interesting in making one of these cute chalkboard trays for yourself, either for serving food or as decorations, or both, you can follow Shanty 2 Chic’s tutorial for this fun and worthy DIY project!
