Tonya here… We are in full holiday mode here. Sure, our Christmas tree isn’t up yet, presents haven’t been bought, and I’m pretty sure no cards are going out this year, but, we are celebrating nonetheless. And, I’m going to show you a simple way you can spend time with your family and friends this holiday season, and on a budget too. Thank you to Goodwill for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.
It’s no secret that I frequent thrift stores. I love find things that others have discarded and finding ways to re-purpose them for my own home. Turning trash into treasure is great for the environment, and helps me save money, especially over the holiday season. So, I want to show you a really simple project you can do at home that will have you spending more time with your family.
Everything on this tray (except the swizzle sticks and marshmallows, of course) was purchased at my local Goodwill store. I’m a big believer in mixing and matching items, keeping it simple, but also keeping it fun. And, it helps to add a little DIY in there too.
The DIY in the photo is the stand that I have our hot chocolate goodies on. This project is great if you have a small space for entertaining and need the extra room. You can put almost anything on this tray (but please don’t put food such as fruit etc directly on the painted surface). You can however use it for cakes (with a base underneath it), cupcakes, hot chocolate, holiday craft supplies, or just to put in the middle of the holiday table with jars filled with utensils, napkins, salt and pepper.
