I promised to share the instructions to make the DIY Monogrammed Lucite Serving Tray that I made at the HGTV Blogger Block Party. I am thinking about making some really soon for some of my girlfriends but didn’t want to wait until then to share the instructions with you. These monogrammed Lucite trays are perfect for hostess gifts, Christmas presents or just a fun craft idea for a girlfriends night in. As a DIY project this is very inexpensive and it takes only a few minutes to complete however if you chose to purchase it, you’ll spend at minimum $60.[Tweet “Don’t buy it!
