How to make the prep handy? With a S’mores station box! You can buy one ready-made or you can DIY one. Then fill it up with all the S’mores must-haves, ready to serve!

DIY and Semi-DIY Options
Shay Jackson uses a repurposed wooden box shelf laid flat to become a Rustic Wood S’mores Bar Station (1). The side compartments hold pre-packaged S’mores sets, while the middle section holds the fuel cans for toasting right there!

Angie of Burton Avenue gives a full tutorial for a DIY S’mores Station (2)—assembling a wooden box from scratch, then adding on a S’mores Station vinyl-cutout label to give it a quaint vintage look.

No place to build a fire? Opt for a DIY tabletop S’mores roasting station (3), as seen on A Cup Full of Sass. This is actually a small planter box filled with pebbles to hold the "canned heat," with a serving tray on the side for the S’mores ingredients. Easy!

For those into serious woodworking, check out this DIY charred wood S’mores Tray (4) from Sarah of Ugly Duckling House. She used the ancient Japanese wood charring technique, called shou sugi ban, to create a striking finish for the dividers of her S’mores tray.

The Buy Option

The Farmhouse Kitchen Roasting Organizer (5), available on Amazon, makes a charming farmhouse-look holder for your S’mores fixings. Plus the lettering is hand-painted on, so it won’t peel off with use.

This isn’t exactly made for S’mores. But the Stonebriar Rectangle Divided Wood Serving Tray (6), also from Amazon, is pretty gorgeous with its rustic wood finish and leather handles. Its divided sections can serve anything, including S’mores!
