DIY Monogram Trinket Tray

DIY Monogram Trinket Tray 9I love to create small gifts for Mother's Day and other holidays. It is fun to make something that I know is absolutely perfect for the person we are giving the gift to and I know that it will be appreciated. I love gifts that are totally tailored to the person and that come from the heart.

This DIY Monogram Trinket Tray is super easy to make and it can be made quickly as a gift. You only need five supplies to make this adorable jewelry holder. You can add a shorter name or even three initials to truly make it a monogram. No matter what you do, this is pretty impossible to mess up because you can always grab the paint and start over.
