SO SMART. Turn mints into a serving tray! Just arrange on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, and bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. Then let completely cool at room temperature. After your party, break and keep in a candy jar! Great idea for a plate of cookies you don't have to get back.
Picture frame serving tray. Remove the glass of a large frame. Paint the frame in your desired color. Attach drawer pulls to the short sides of the frame as handles. Insert a piece of pretty fabric or decorative paper behind the glass.
Make a tray from an old frame. Need a frame - paint or decorate, frame a get-well card, message or pretty pic or photo to personalize it; screw 2 door handles into the wood ... and you've got a tray.Don't forget, if the frame has old paint on it seal it with clear poly...so no lead paint chips get in food or anywhere else.
