3 Tiered Tray

Well I have seen a handful or more of tutorials out on making your own two tiered dessert trays.  I decided to make a 3 tiered tray and have the top be a bowl.  The balance of the over all piece seemed  better to me this way.  You can stack it several different ways, since you still have 3 separate pieces, for versatility.  Desserts, or chips and dip, you make the call.  For me, being dessert week at  RWOP, I know my answer.
I bought the plates and bowl at Walmart for about two dollars a piece.  The candle holders
were extra I had on hand, but you can find similar candle holders and plates at the dollar store.

This project took literally 30 seconds to complete. I am glad I only hot glued the small plate and the
bowl to the tops of the candle holders.  This way I can separate the pieces if I like.  Of course I am not
going to risk the dish washer, but probably could.  If it were to come apart, I could just take another 30 seconds and glue it back together.  This would be a fun project to use up miss matched incomplete sets of  plates, often found at yard sales.

  14. I like the option of separating them. I have one from the 50's and it is my favorite serving piece, but I do wish it came apart sometimes. Now I can just make one! I don't know why this never crossed my mind! Thanks for sharing!

  15. This is such a great idea.
    Mind joining one more linky party?
    I am starting my own linky party ToDaY! It's the first one. I would love it if you would participate! It's called $10 Tuesdays and it's for things that cost less than $10 and take 20-30 mins (ish) to complete. I love inexpensive and quick projects and I'm guessing others will too ;) Thanks so much for considering.
