If you're sick of cleaning up mud, slush and snow from your entryway, it may be time for a boot tray. Boot trays don't have to be fancy to do the job. Here are 12 DIY entryway boot tray ideas, some of which you can make in just minutes!
Do you have a closet in your entryway? Instead of having all those boots end up in a pile on the floor, try a boot mat tray equipped with a cabinet handle and wheels. Pull out the tray, line up the boots and push it back into the closet, out of sight.

Framed Plastic Tray
Head to a discount store or garage sale and pick up a plastic tray. Add some medium-size stones for drainage and you have an instant boot mat tray. To keep the stones in place and give the tray a handsome finished look, build a simple frame around the tray.
Here’s another boot tray that uses rocks to help drain the water from wet and muddy footwear. This DIYer used a scrap piece of clear plastic, and heated it in an oven to mold the small lip on the edges of the boot mat tray. The lip keeps the rocks from falling off.

Instead of using rocks to help boots drain, use seashells! This DIYer used a $1 mat and lined it with shells and sand dollars from her collection, along with a few rocks to fill in the space for a boot mat tray.
