Joyful Mod Hodgepodge Holiday Specialist

This joyful Mod hodgepodge holiday tray is SO easy to make for the holidays! Great for displaying cookies for Santa or other Christmas decor.

Hello, my name is Anna, and I blog My life and kids. I’m excited about the visit of Mod conglomeration of rocks today!

I had three children in three years, and so has changed my life! Only a few years ago I had a job I loved, a house in the town, and a social life.
Now I stay home with my three children, I live in the suburbs, I wear mom jeans, AND I drive a minivan! In my spare time, I blog about everything in My life and children.
Today, I’m going to share one of my favorite holiday projects with you: my joy{ges} Mod hodgepodge holiday specialist.

Here’s What you’ll have To:

wooden tray
Scrapbook paper
Mod hodgepodge gloss
Craft brush

I was {overly} excited to save my local craft store, carries wooden bowls, which are already painted white!
I happened to be on sale for $8.99 – but the regular price is $14.99 – and you can always find a 40% off coupon. If you don’t want a white tray, they also have smaller, bare wood tablet for $2.99 each.
I have to cut my huge stash of scrapbook paper and a decorative frame for the tray. Then I printed the letters J – O – Y on white computer paper and drew on my scrapbook paper and cut them out.
I could probably print directly on the scrapbook paper, but I think didn’t that. Maybe next time.
Once I had set up everything how I wanted it, I used the Mod-hodgepodge, to hold them in place. First I used a foam paint craft paint brush, Mod hodgepodge over the entire tray.
Then I got my scrapbook paper in place and put a layer of Mod-pick-and-mix over the entire subject again – for sure no wrinkles along the way to smooth.
This year, Santa’s cookies are served in style! Now – let’s be honest. I swallows down every last, the cookies within minutes of taking this picture.
But – I’m sure I can show some restraint on Christmas Eve {at least until my kids are in bed}.
thank you for having me, Amy!

While you’re, you can learn how, I ask from my Mod smorgasbord of Christmas trees, my secret to a happy marriage (don’t tell my husband!), how I treated MY comment I have on my blog, my answer, when people ask, “you like to stay at home?” AND why my mother needs to use the coffee shop drive thru.


thanks for getting back, Anna. You are one of my favorites – I love your writing style on parenthood!
