DIY Serving Tray

Updated: Jun 9, 2021

I love how multipurpose trays are for decorating, entertaining, or even organizing! However, beautiful trays can get pricey. When searching for decor for our new home, the trays I found and liked were $100 or more. You know what is affordable? Floor Tile. When I say affordable, I’m talking less than $3. These blue floor tiles were $2.85 per piece from Lowes and the perfect material to make my own tray using Beacon’s Power-Tac glue. Scroll down to see how easy this tray is to create. Take a peek at the bottom of this post to see all of the ways this tray was styled in our picnic party photo shoot!



blue tile is 12x24 inches and white marble tile is 8x16 inches

•2 Cabinet Drawer Pulls

•4 Felt Pads


Step 1:

Fill the holes of the drawer pull pegs with Beacon Adhesives Power-Tac to create a flat surface. Set aside to dry for at least 10 minutes.

Step 2:

Flip over the tile so the bottom is facing up. Apply a pea sized amount of Power-Tac to the sticky side of the felt pads and place directly to the back side of the tile. Place one felt pad on each of the four corners. Let dry.

Step 3:

Apply a small amount of Power-Tac on the bottom of the drawer pull pegs. Wait 30 seconds for glue to dry slightly and then place the drawer pull on the tray. Hold firmly for 30 seconds to secure. Repeat so both drawer pulls are on each side of the tray. Let dry overnight.

I loved this project so much that I made an additional tray with a smaller white marble floor tile. Scroll down to see the trays styled in a picnic party photo shoot!
