I love simple crafts like this DIY Tiered Tray. All of the materials used in this tutorial can be found at your local Dollar Tree store or on their website.
You can make something beautiful, without spending a lot of money. Win-Win!
The other day we made a fun wooden tiered tray from one of my favorite childhood games. After putting it to use in my house I just had to make another tiered tray for my dresser. They are the perfect catch-all!
Homemade Dollar Tree Tiered Tray
You can find all of these supplies at Dollar Tree
- 1 Large Size White Plate
- 2 Medium Sized White Plates
- 2 Clear Candlesticks
- Gorilla Glue
- Light Yellow Spray Paint
Optional: If you plan on using your tray for heavy use I would suggest E6000 Glue or an outdoor glue.
Making this craft is pretty straightforward. The only thing that is slightly tricky is that it can be a bit repetitive and on this tiered tray we will be applying the candlesticks upside down – so make sure that as you are going you are paying attention.
Having to take one-off after the super glue has set to flip it back around would pretty much suck 😉
Another thing to put thought into before you start is what type of spray paint to use. You will want to make sure that the spray paint you choose is durable enough for your intended use and if you are hoping to use this tiered tray for food, that the paint is food safe. This is the spray paint I recommend.
