Thanksgiving is just over a month away. As soon as the clock strikes midnight on November 1st, my Halloween decorations are boxed up, and Thanksgiving comes out!
I love to host holiday meals, especially Thanksgiving. But, Thanksgiving decorations are sometimes hard to find. I don’t want a bunch of turkeys and feathers decorating the house.
So, I tend to make all of my decorations for Thanksgiving, including this beautiful Thanksgiving tray.
DIY Relish Tray
I was recently at one of my favorite stores and I found this stunning iron and wood serving tray. I had to buy it! Once I got it home, I thought it needed a little something. I quickly decided it would be a new Thanksgiving serving tray.
It’s the perfect size for a relish tray or small serving tray.
Make Thanksgiving Serving Dishes
It is really easy to embellish store-bought trays and service-ware. You just need to be careful about food safety on Iron On or adhesive vinyl.
My food won’t actually touch the Iron-On. If you are worried about it, you could use the tray as a decorative piece too.
Thanksgiving Tray DIY Supplies
You will only need a few supplies to make this stunning Thanksgiving serving tray. And, if you are a crafter, I am sure you have everything you need already. I made this SVG file customizable, so you could remove the word thankful and add your last name or another word.
DOWNLOAD SVG BELOW
Download the SVG, and upload it to Cricut Design Space. Then, size it to fit your tray.
Send the file to cut. Don’t forget to mirror your cut and place the Iron On on the cutting mat shiny side down.
Weed the excess Iron-On.
Pre-heat the EasyPress 2. And apply the Iron-On on the tray.
Cover the Iron On and tray with the Iron-On Protective Sheet. Press according to Cricut’s recommended heat settings.
Remove the carrier sheet and admire your beautiful new serving tray.
This SVG would be great on napkins, a blanket, or even a sign too!

You could say my blogging journey is a little bit Erin Brockovich, a whole lot creative mom.
Life took a crazy turn with the birth of my third child, who had so many health issues we weren’t sure if he’d live. Eventually he and his younger brother were both diagnosed with an auto-immune disorder that mimics disease found in Asian children exposed to Agent Orange. We believe ground water tainted by a chemical testing facility near our home is likely to blame.
I wasn’t about to let health challenges get in the way of CELEBRATING life with my children and started planning fairly elaborate, themed events in the security of my home. Today I am an established party blogger looking to partner with brands on budget-friendly, DIY home celebrations.
Jessica’s work has been featured on such notable party blogs and magazines such as Catch My Party, Hostess With The Mostess, Bird’s Party Magazine, Amy Atlas, lilsugar, and Spaceships and Laserbeams.
