No matter how you stack it, the roasty, sweet goodness of a s'more continues to be a backyard/camping classic. Just stick a marshmallow on a skewer and toast it to golden perfection over a fire pit or a mini terra cotta fire pit.

  • Make s'more memories
  • The s'more the merrier
  • Everything is s'more fun around the campfire
  • Follow me to the s'mores
  • Did someone say s'mores?
  • Spread s'more love

Print the phrase you choose using a font size that works for your wooden serving tray. Cut out the words and images, leaving a bit of white around them to make them stand out.

Step 2

Turn over the words and images and spray the back with some spray adhesive. If you don't have any spray adhesive, you could brush them with decoupage finish or watered-down white school glue. If you choose to use glue, print the words onto index paper so it won't buckle when it dries.

Step 4

Use a wide paintbrush to brush the decoupage finish over the words and images. It will dry clear. Let it dry for at least 24 hours before you load up your s'mores station box with your favorite s'mores ingredients.

Step 6

Roast marshmallows over a fire pit. If a big fire pit isn't part of your backyard s'mores party, try a tabletop DIY mini s'mores terra cotta fire pit.
