Painted Wood Tray Monogram for kids

The Painted Wood Tray Monogram  was painted by my son Maxx.  He is 11.5  We had a rainy day recently and I was out of entertainment ideas.  Being the crafty mom that I am, we headed into the craft room and  opened of the drawer of wonder, AKA the recycling drawer.  We keep cans, jars, boxes and anything else that one might normally throw away.  We keep them for craft days.

The wood tray was originally part of the packaging for a tray of citronella candles. Once the tray was empty it became part of the recycling drawer and fair game for anyone to use.

Materials needed for the painted wood tray camp craft:

  • a cover for work surface
  • A wood tray
  • paint brush
  • Americana Paint – Brick Red and Midnight Blue
