No Experience Necessary…

Hi friends! I saw some really great white ceramic mugs at the dollar store the other day and I thought they would be fun to paint for Christmas gifts and fill with goodies. After I got them home I looked for a serving tray to go with them but I did not have one so I made one out of hardboard and wood scraps. I think it turned out pretty nice!


Watch the video to see how!
