Gear up for the holiday with these Thanksgiving decorating ideas for your holiday table. These rustic farmhouse tables are inspiring me today! I love to plan out my table and make the most of it when my guests arrive. What will my theme be this year? I don’t know yet! But I have been stalking Pinterest for ideas and of course sharing them with you! Y’all enjoy and get inspired to create your own gorgeous tablescape for Thanksgiving.
Tray decoration ideas are perfect for Thanksgiving. You can make this Thanksgiving tray in minutes and display it around your home or use it to serve up some of your meal. This same method can actually be used to make a tray for a variety of seasons and holidays. Just look for plain trays when shopping then adorn them with vinyl cut on your Cricut.
Supplies needed for these tray decoration ideas:
Some links below may be affiliate links which means that you do not pay anymore however a portion of your purchase will go to support this site. Also some of the products below may have been sent to me for free however all projects and opinions are my own.
- White metal tray or other round tray (try Amazon for a few options here)
- Cricut Cutting Machine (Want to see the difference between the machines? I compared the Cricut Maker and Explore here.)
- Transfer tape
- Weeding tools (optional)
- Free downloadable file (click here to download)
Start by downloading the file here and importing into Design Space. Just click upload when you are on your canvas in Design Space.
Click upload image and then find the image in a folder on your computer.
You then have three options for what type of image you are uploading. In this case, simple works perfectly. If you are uploading other images and having issues, try changing up the type here.
Then you come to a screen where you will need to erase all of the excess parts that you do not want.
Just click on all of that “excess” and it will turn checked like the below image.
NOTE: You will have to click the center of each leaf as well as the center of each letter.
Click continue when you are done and you can preview on the next page. Click the back button if there is more you need to erase. Otherwise, in this case, we want to save as a cut image only. Click the cut image and then click continue.
Now the image is in your uploads and you can click it then click insert images.
Resize the image here to the size desired for your tray.
Then cut the entire thing from vinyl using your Cricut. Remove any excess using weeding tools or just by hand. I find that the use of weeding tools is much faster and easier however.
Add transfer tape to the front, burnish well, and peel to remove.
Carefully place in position on your tray. Rub down well and peel back transfer tape to reveal your design now on your tray. Use this same method for tray decoration ideas anytime of the year.
This one can be used to serve up something at Thanksgiving, to decorate your home, or to bring out some Snickerdoodles to your friends.
