Hello everyone! I’d like to show you just how simple and affordable it is to make your own tiered tray. Tiered trays are really popular right now and everyone loves to decorate them with seasonal trinkets. It’s so much fun to have something that you can change out according to the season or just the decor of the room. Tiered trays can be placed all around your home, not just in a kitchen or just in a dining room…you can use them in your bathroom to hold soaps or face cloths…you can use them in your bedroom to hold figurines or your jewelry etc. You can have them all over your home in different shapes and sizes and decorate them to your liking. Hop over to my “Fall Tiered Tray Decor Ideas” post for some great Fall inspiration!
Making your own tiered tray is so simple and inexpensive you’ll probably make several and place them everywhere! You only need 2 or 3 pans, some candlesticks, glue, paint and your imagination! That’s really it! There are some that you can make that require saws and drills and nuts and bolts, but this is not what we are making here. I wanted to bring you something that you could very possibly make with things you have in your home right now. If you can round up a few things you can have your very own handmade tiered tray in just a few simple steps.

If you have the supplies, you just find the center of the bottom tray, mark it, put your glue on it and then your candlestick (or whatever you decide to use between tiers). Mark the center of the middle pan on the bottom of the pan and glue that to the top of the candlestick. Then find the center on the inside of the middle pan, mark it and glue the second candlestick to it. Mark the center on the bottom of the last pan and glue it to the top of the candlestick. Allow a few hours for your glue to cure (preferably over night) before you paint it. That’s it! Hope you enjoyed this post, if so leave me a comment and come back soon!
The items that you will need are listed below and if you don’t have the supplies and would like to get them here are some suggestions:
