Chalkboard Trays

I just finished another gift idea...a plastic tray turned into decorative chalkboard.  I found a plastic snowman tray in the shape of a Christmas ornament at the thrift store for a $1.  I painted over the tray with chalkboard paint, my son was sad to see the snowman go.  It took about 3 coats...I forgot to take pics til the end. I let it sit overnight and then 'conditioned' it...does that really make a difference?  Anyway, then I pulled out the chalk markers and started playing.

Now I just have to decide where to leave it....cute though, right?  I also bought a couple of long, rectangular trays while I was there for gifts for friends. I figure I can paint them and write a message on there for them, and send some chalk.  Too easy.
