Make Your Own Farmhouse 3 Tier Tray Stack

This tutorial shows you how to make a tier tray stack used in farmhouse style home decor using metal tray hacks from the Dollartree

What you need

Pizza trays
2 x cake tins
Candle stick holders, tins, or glass jars for centers.
White spray paint
painters sponge


This tutorial shows you how to make a farmhouse styled tier tray. These multi-layer trays are very popular right now and can be seen in Pottery Barn and Anthropologie, but you can DIY and make your own using inexpensive items fro discount stores or the Dollartree.

This project uses 2 baking pans and a pizza tray with candlestick holders. These same trays have been made with glass drink bottles in between and even terracotta plant pots to raise each pan.  Use what you have available to reduce the costs of your project. You just need to balance out the look.

I highly recommend using a strong glue like E6000 to secure the pans to the candlestick holders. Make sure you allow it to dry in between.

Glue all the pieces into place and apply a base coat, for this one it has been coated in white paint and layered with grey using a sponge.

You can also have a base of grey and add white and grey paint for a faux galvanized look like this.

It’s simple to see why tiered trays have become a popular home décor trend. They are not only physically stunning and eye-catching, but they can also be utilized to exhibit a range of things in one location. Tiered trays are a terrific way to bring a bit of sophistication to your kitchen counter, whether you’re searching for an elegant method to showcase tiny plants and candles or want to add a touch of sophistication to your kitchen counter.

Tiered trays are a contemporary and attractive way to display your favorite objects. They are available in a range of materials, styles, sizes, and colors, allowing you to create a unique appearance that complements your personality. You may also combine multiple trays to make a one-of-a-kind and intriguing display.

To get started decorating your tiered tray, begin by selecting your favorite items to display. Whether you’re showcasing plants, candles, books, or trinkets, be sure to group them together in an eye-catching way. You can also add decorative accents such as ribbons or greenery to give it a more personalized touch.

If you’re looking for a more permanent tiered tray decoration, consider incorporating a variety of materials. You can use wood, metal, glass, or ceramic to add texture and interest to your display. You can also use decorative items such as flowers, figurines, or vintage pieces to create a more rustic, antique look.

No matter what your style is, tiered tray decorations can be a great way to spruce up your home. With a bit of creativity and imagination, you can create a unique and eye-catching display that adds a touch of sophistication to any room.
