Play Dessert Tray

Sorry that I haven't posted as much this summer.  I assure you, that once things get back into a more structured school mode, there will be more posts and tutorials!  I have a few lined up, it's just a matter of finding a spare hour or two to do it!  My son starts kindergarten next week and once I stop crying , I will get back into a normal routine!

So, I have been sewing a lot of felt food lately.  It's easy to throw in a bag and carry it with me.  The problem is, that I have lots of cute food and not a lot of cute play things to put it on.  So my dilemma was remedied one day as I walked through the dinnerware aisle at Target.  They had a great selection of melamine salad plates and appetizer plates!  Perfect!  My kids can't or would have to try really hard to break them!  So I grabbed two of them and headed home to make a two tiered dessert tray for the play kitchen.

Want to make one too?  It's so easy.

Here's what you'll need...

  • Two plates (My plates are from Target, one salad size and one appetizer size)

  • a small piece of wood

  • paint, paint brush and glue (I used hot glue, because I'm impatient.  You could use something stronger if you want.)

Are you ready? Ok, here's what you do, paint your piece of wood.  Let it dry.  Determine the center of your plates.  Glue the wood in the center of the larger plate.  Add glue to the top of your wood, place smaller plate on top.  And that's it.  Easy peasy.





  1. I love all the play food projects so much! I wish they're been around when I was young, I would have crazy over this dessert tray! Thanks so much for this, I'll be linking.

  2. I know! I find myself arranging and rearranging the play food and kitchen, thankfully my kids love it when mommy plays! Thanks for linking!!

  3. I LOVE this idea. My daughter loves playing with all her felt play food and would love if I made this for her. Thanks so much for the idea. I'll link back to you on my blog when I make it if that's ok.


  4. Yes, please do, I would love to see it!
