How to Make Your Own DIY Spring Tiered Plate Stand

| |

Let’s get started on how to make your own DIY Spring Tiered Plate Stand. This guide will walk you through the easy steps of making one.

Using everyday objects and a touch of creativity, you’ll have a charming and functional piece that’s perfect for displaying treats.

You have seen the expense tiered tray with the fancy dishes. Let’s make our own DIY at a fraction of the cost.

Look for items you already have on hand such as miss-matched dishes (they can be ceramic or plastic). For the base seek out candle stick holders, small vases, votive holders, glasses, cups, etc.

Be sure to visit local thrift stores for some of these items or yards sales. Use your imagination.

Let’s get started and bring a touch of springtime whimsy to your home!

  • Two 11 inch diameter plates (they can be mismatched)
  • A small cupcake stand (Hobby Lobby)
  • Small ceramic rabbit (3 1/2 inches long)
  • E6800 Industrial Adhesive Glue
  • Hobnail Jar (you can substitute candle sticks, votive candle holders, etc.)

Wash and dry all of your plates, candle sticks, jars, and decorative figures (rabbit). You want to make sure all dust and any price tags are removed. Especially if you have purchased the items from a thrift store. You want nice clean items to work with for your craft project.

You can turn the Hobnail jar upside down. It’s your preference on the end to adhere the glue to the plate.

Add a generous amount of E6800 Industrial Adhesive Glue to the top edge of the item you will be using as your base. You may want to put down a piece of plastic or cardboard to protect your counter tops from spilling any glue.

Next, you are going to determine the center of the plate bottom. You can use a permanent sharp to mark the center (optional). Place your base centered on the bottom of your plate.

You make any adjustments now while the adhesive glue is still wet. You can carefully slide the plate into the right position. You don’t want to have glue globs on the plate.

Note: If you need just a cake stand, voila! Instant cake stand. Here’s another DIY idea.

Add the industrial glue around the edge and across the center of the small cupcake stand.

You will need to place the glue side down of the cupcake stand in the center of your plate. It’s coming together nicely!

Add the adhesive glue around the edges of the cupcake stand and a small amount to the center.

Carefully, you are going to add the next plate on top. Press down lightly to adhere but not to squish all the glue out.

Note: You can leave it finished at this step or add a decorative element to the top.

For spring, you can add a small rabbit to the top the top tier. There will be plenty of room for goodies.

Add the industrial adhesive glue around the edge of the ceramic rabbit. Now place the rabbit in the center of the top plate on your tiered stand.
