AdTech Hi Temp Precision Pro Glue Gun
Tray or plate charger from your local craft or dollar store
Chalkboard Paint
Holiday themed floral picks
Glitter letters
Mini-snowflake ornaments
Silver ball trim (mini-sized)
One piece of chalk

Instructions:

Step 1. Paint the tray with chalkboard paint. Allow to dry completely.
*Designer note: Not all chalkboard paints work on plastic and metal. If you have trouble with your paint chipping, purchase a wooden disc that will fit in the middle of your tray, paint it with the chalkboard paint and glue into the center of the tray.
