Introduction: DIY Tiered Stand

This tiered tray is one stand-out DIY display that's both pretty and affordable.

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

  • 2 plastic plates
  • 2 glass candle holders
  • E6000 glue
  • Acrylic craft paint (or food safe paint)
  • Preval Sprayer

Step 2: Construct the Stand

* First, apply glue to the top rim of a candlestick and attach it to the bottom of a plate.

* Next, glue the bottom, or base, of the other candlestick to the top of the plate you just glued.

* Then, glue the second plate to the top of that candlestick.

Allow the glue to dry for up to 1 hour before spraying.

Step 3: Prepare the Preval Sprayer

When the waiting game is over, prepare your Preval Sprayer.

Add 1 ounce of paint and 2 ounces of water to the jar.

Cap, shake and attach the spray can.

Spray a layer of even paint onto the candle holders and plates, allowing them to dry between each coat.

Step 4: Food Safety

Acrylic paint is not food safe. Do not place food on the tiered tray if you've coated it using regular craft paint.

Food safe paint: If you'd like to use your tiered display for cupcakes or other yummies, use Pebeo Porcelain 150 Paint, available via Note, sealing the paint requires oven firing.

Food safe tiered display instructions:

  1. Purchase porcelain, heat-safe plates and candlesticks.
  2. Paint the plates and candlesticks, using the Preval Sprayer.
  3. Oven fire.
  4. Glue the plates and candlesticks.
