DIY mint serving tray

Hello again, Crafters!

I hope that everyone had a fun and safe Thanksgiving week. But now it is time to get back to some craft ideas!

DIY mint serving tray displayI found this mint serving tray idea over at Tutto Bella Blog, and thought it was a unique project.

Essentially, you melt mints together to form a serving tray.

It is cheap, not very time consuming, and you get a really beautiful serving tray to use for the holidays.

However, you will have to be careful with it. Since all it is is reformed candy, it has the possibility of breaking easily if too much force is applied to it.

I did see one reader’s comment suggesting that when you are finished using the tray, break it up and put it in a bowl to snack on later.

Happy Holiday Crafting!

    • I haven’t had the chance to try this yet, but I can see why you might be apprehensive about it. This may be a craft you’ll have to try out the first time and see how it goes. I know that some ovens bake at higher or lower temperatures than others do, and that can sometimes cause mess-ups. The other thing I would be very careful about when trying this is letting it cool down before peeling the wax paper away. I believe the author on Tutto Bella Blog mentioned in one of their comments that they removed the paper when the candy was still a little warm, but dry enough not to bend the candy. When you remove the wax paper will ultimately have to be your call though.

      The plus side is that this is a cheap project, so if it gets majorly messed up, you haven’t wasted a lot of time or money. And if you are really concerned about how this will turn out, I would make a practice one first using only a few mints to see how the process works out for you. Hope that helps! :)
