This simple Gather Tray using a thrift store find was a quick and easy Thanksgiving decor project. I love using my Cricut for projects like this, but any vinyl decals could be used.

Before we get fully engulfed with Christmas projects, I wanted to share this quick and easy Thanksgiving piece.
Gather Tray Using a Thrift Store Find
Most of the trays that I find at my local Goodwill are in rough shape. At the very least they need a fresh coat of paint. This white, oval tray was in perfect condition though! All it needed was a quick cleaning with dish washing liquid and it was ready.
Supplies Used for Thanksgiving Gather Tray
- Thrift Store Find Tray
- Cricut Air Explore 2 & Tools
- Gray Vinyl
- Transfer Paper
The store tag was still on the back of the tray. It originally came from At Home. I couldn’t find one just like this on their web site, but similar ones are listed for around $20.00. I paid $2.99 for it and I had the vinyl and transfer paper on hand.
Using Design Space, I searched for “gather” and found this pretty image. If you have design space, you can find it by searching for #M3D281BC in images.
After resizing it, I cut it from gray vinyl. Once the weeding was done, it was ready to be transferred to the tray.
I’ve mentioned before that I like using transfer paper instead of transfer tape. I’ve had more success with it working easily.
This was such an easy way to dress up a plain tray. While I used my Cricut, I’ve seen vinyl decals at dollar tree that would be great to use to enhance a tray.
I like the size of this tray. It’s large enough to hold several wine glasses and mugs, making it great for a drink serving tray for guests.
It can also be used as a coffee table tray with a simple fall decor piece added to it. Don’t you love quick and easy seasonal projects?
