Coffee Table Tray Tutorial - Cara & Co

Supplies Needed:

  • 2 x 12” wood wreath rings (can be found at most craft stores)
  • 1-2 packages of wooden BBQ skewers
  • 18-20 x 1.70” maple wood rings
  • Hot glue gun & glue sticks
  • Pencil
  • Small hand held saw or utility knife

*a bamboo placemat could be used as an alternative to BBQ skewers if you are able to source one.

Step-by-step Instructions:

1. Gather up your supplies. You may need more or less wooden BBQ skewers depending on the amount in your package. We used about ¾ of a package of 100 skewers.

2. Taking your wreath ring, skewers, and a pencil, begin to mark out the length your skewers will need to be cut to fill the center of your ring. You can do this two ways: you can either glue them into the inside of the ring, flush with the bottom, OR you can glue your skewers to the underside of the ring and trim them from the outside of the ring. Either way works! We opted to glue them to the inside of our ring.

3. Get ready for the most time consuming part! Either in small groups, or individually, cut down your skewers and glue them on the bottom of your tray. If you find your skewers aren’t even or begin to bend, you can also glue a wood or cardboard piece to the underside of your tray and glue down your skewers to it.

4. Lay out your wood rings, and begin to glue them standing up on the top rim of your wood wreath ring. If you want to ensure you have them properly spaced, you can lay them down flat on your wreath ring to ensure your spacing is to your preference, and then glue them down. Make sure they stand upright and straight!

5. Once all your rings have been glued in place, finish up by gluing on your top wreath ring. You can either add a glue dot to the top of your wood rings or run a line of glue to the underside of your wreath ring. Both work!
