Make a Halloween Chalkboard Serving Tray
- unfinished or old wooden tray
- tinted primer
- chalkboard paint
- fine-grit sanding pad
- tack cloth
If tray has a painted or varnished layer, thoroughly sand it to remove any existing finish.
Brush on an even layer of tinted primer; allow to dry for three hours.
Sand off any rough or raised areas, then wipe clean with tack cloth to ensure a smooth, dust-free surface.

Treat Tray Surface With Chalk
Prepare tray for writing by covering surfaces using a large chalk stick on its side (Image 1). This allows all future markings to be fully erasable. Rub chalk into surfaces then wipe away with a towel (Image 2). Complete your spooktacular tray with your favorite Halloween phrase or a message to your guests.
