It’s Christmas in July and we are starting with one my favorite things to style – a tiered tray. This isn’t an ordinary tiered tray, this is Santa’s tiered tray. Straight from his workshop where he is no doubt amping up the elves to start toy production as we speak.
What Was Included On Santa’s Workshop Tiered Tray
I set up this three tier tray as if it were on Santa’s desk! Using Christmas decorations and office supplies to fill these Santa themed trays, I included –
- small wooden and fabric ornaments – I chose ones that looked handmade and wooden ones that looked like small toys thinking maybe those were prototypes for elf built toys!
- resume paper – I tore and inked the edges to antique them – use this method for an easy way to do this. Roll these into a scroll and tie with green or red twine.
- green envelopes – I’m fairly certain Santa Claus uses only red and green office supplies!
- coffee mugs – for a quick cup of hot chocolate or apple cider
- that absolutely perfect and darling Santa’s list print – see below how to make your own!
- an ink pot with a “feather pen” – directions to make this simple craft below
Create your own Santa List for the Workshop
You can make your own Santa List very simply!
- Start by searching for popular baby names from any year – I love this one. And you can look for a different year too!
- Copy and paste that name list to a word document.
- Add a toy next to each name.
- The last step is to add a title and clipart and a border if you want.
Santa’s Ink Pot DIY Craft
I painted the inside of a Yoplait Oui Jar, just the bottom half, to use as Santa’s ink pot in this three tiered tray for Santa’s Workshop. I also dipped the tip of the feathers in the sparkly blue paint to create a “feather pen”. Head to my Instagram post to see the painting process!
Santa is ready to tackle Christmas with this three tiered tray for his workshop. He’s ready to write the letters, plan the toy production and make everyone’s season merry and bright!
