DIY "Serve Yourself Lemonade Tray"... made using dollar store supplies

Celebrating summer with simple decor and fun food is a fantastic idea... especially when you can do it on a budget. One fun option to create a "serve yourself" DIY lemonade tray using dollar store supplies. Keep reading to see how easy and inexpensive it is to create!

The first step is to insert a colourful piece of paper into a wooden frame from the dollar store.

Then, use a combination of hot glue and wood glue to attach large wood beads to the bottom of the frame. (I painted mine with white chalk paint, but you can leave them plain if you want.)

I also used some glue to secure the back of the frame in place.

Once the glue dried, I filled the tray with goodies. I included: a dollar store lemonade pitcher, a dollar store lemonade glass, a jar filled with yellow and orange candies, some wooden beads, a lemonade slice decoration (made from scraps of felt), and some lemonade mix.

Tip: To add some colour to the tray, use painters tape and spray paint to create a yellow lid for the candy jar.

And... you can display the tray with this adorable "lemonade" picture. You can download it for free here.

Seriously... isn't this cute? This is such a simple idea, and it's sure to be a hit with family and friends. My kids are loving it! If you make a DIY "serve yourself lemonade tray", let me know how it turns out.
