-Cut your design on Oracal 651 Black Vinyl. Please remember vinyl is not food safe, so do not put food directly on the tray. You can put food in packages or plates, napkins, but please don’t put food on it.

DIY Farmhouse Tray for the Kitchen

We are still working hard on giving the kitchen a makeover and almost have our cabinets finished. Even though the kitchen won’t be finished for awhile, I’m working on all the “pretty farmhouse” decorations for when it is done. Here is my farmhouse sign for the kitchen gallery wall.

Hi I'm Jenny from Cookies, Coffee, and Crafts. I love to create decorations for my home, projects to create magical holidays, and to have fun with my kids. The quote "I run on coffee, chaos, and crafts" describes my world and I wouldn't have it any other way. I hope you find inspiration and enjoy my creative journey.
