Do you need a Father’s Day gift idea and like to DIY? I have a project for you and kid’s can help too! You can make this easy and inexpensive BBQ menu tray for Father’s Day, and it can be used for SO much more!
SUPPLIES FOR BBQ MENU TRAY
- A cookie sheet pan (Dollar Tree)
- Chalkboard paint of your choice (I used Rust-oleum, Amazon)
- Paint brush
- Painters Tape
- Magnetic Hooks
- BBQ Utensils
I taped the edges of my pan with the painter’s tape to stop the paint from getting on the edges.
Paint on the chalkboard paint and let dry. Follow the directions, mine said to let the paint dry for 3 days.
Pull off the painter’s tape.
Season the chalkboard paint by using a piece of chalk sideways and coloring the whole surface area. This step is important so that when you write on it the writing erases – if you skip this step your chalk words won’t erase as well.
Erase all the chalk.
Optional – Use E6000 to glue some twine on the back so you can hang the tray if you want.
Place your magnetic hooks on your tray. I used magnetic hooks so I could use this tray as a serving tray.
Use the chalk to write your menu, grocery list, etc.
Hook your BBQ utensils on your hooks.
Makes a great gift for Father’s Day.
These also make great lap trays for parties, and for kids during road trips. See the post here
Optional – if you didn’t want to use chalkboard paint, you could leave the tray as is. You can use bottle cap magnets to add your menu, grocery list, etc.
