So easy to make and incredibly inexpensive.
Perfect for displaying holiday decor and desserts. The stand would also be an excellent piece to keep your craft supplies and would add a pretty touch to any office or craft room.
What you'll need:
3 wooden nesting trays
Spindles or candle sticks (I used metal candle sticks that unscrewed to create different lengths)
Fine grain sand paper
Optional - knobs ad/or dowel feet
Spray paint all of your materials that will be used for the tiered stand ie. trays, candlesticks etc. I recommend at least two coats of spray paint. Allow to fully dry. (picture abp3)
Using your fine grain sand paper, gently sand over any rough patches on your trays until smooth. To achieve a distressed look, simply sand until some of the natural color of the wood comes through.
If adding legs for your tray, squeeze glue onto the bottom of one of your dowels and place on the bottom side of your largest tray. Repeat this step for each dowel leg that you would like to add to your tray. Set aside to dry. Once dry, squeeze glue to bottom of a candlestick/spindle and place in the center of your tray. Set aside.
Take your middle tray and squeeze glue to the bottom of one candlestick/spindle and place in the center of the top side of the tray. Squeeze glue to the top of the candlestick/spindle and gently set your last tray on top. Set aside to dry.
Squeeze glue to adhere knob to the top of the shortest candlestick/spindle. Once adhered, squeeze glue to the bottom side of the candlestick/spindle and place in the center of the top tray. Set aside to dry.
Take your largesttray and add glue to the top of the candlestick and gently place the middle and top trays onto the candlestick/spindle. Set aside to dry for 48-72 hours.
Once your tiered tray is completely dry, add holiday decor and desserts.
