Baseball Crafts: DIY Serving Tray

One of the biggest things we’ve missed over the last few months has definitely been watching sports. In anticipation of baseball season restarting we’re sharing this fun baseball craft: a DIY serving tray.

Baseball Themed Serving Tray

For many, getting together with friends to watch a baseball game is always a favorite way to spend a weekend afternoon. Putting out some simple snacks and drinks is a great way to enjoy our time together with neighbors and friends.

Serving trays are one of my favorite ways to put a bunch of items together and serve them in the living room. From our wood slice and resin serving tray to this faux mosaic one they’re also projects to make.

To celebrate the upcoming baseball season we made this baseball inspired serving tray using simply a wood circle and some hardware.
