Pizza Tray Chalkboard Wreath By The Little Giggler

Hi Everyone!
How was your Halloween?!  My daughter dressed up as a mermaid.  We took her trick or treating (she’s 3 1/2)  and after about three houses she was like “Why are we doing this?  Grandma has a whole bowl of candy at her house.”  Ugh.  She’s a problem solver.Lets move on to Thanksgiving shall we.
I think we’ll start with a pizza tray chalkboard wreath.
Yes.
Pizza tray.

 

Here’s what you need to make one:

A Pizza Tray (I got mine from the dollar store)
Chalkboard Paint
Felt
Embroidery Floss
Hot Glue & Gun
Chalk
Scissors

The first thing I did was spray paint the pizza tray with the chalk board paint.  I used two coats and let it dry over night.  Then I made a few different types of felt flowers in different sizes.  Most of them are simple.  You can find the tutorial for rolled felt flowers HERE.  I played around with the arrangement before hot gluing them on.

Next I cut out some triangles of felt to make the bunting.  I just threaded the embroidery floss through the tops of the triangles and taped the floss to the back of the tray.  I used tape in case I might want to move it in the future, like if I change the saying or something.  Next I made a loop to hang the wreath.  I used a 7″ x 1″ piece of felt, looped it, and hot glued it to the back.

Finally I wrote “give thanks” with chalk.  I tried to use colors that would work throughout most of the year.  I just need to change the writing.

This project is super affordable to make.  Especially if you already have chalkboard paint.

I’m kind of in love with it.
What do you think?

Here’s a back view showing of that beautiful scotch tape.  The pizza tray is really light.  The felt has no problem holding it up.
