I am obsessed with tiered cake stands. It all started when I was shopping for a friend’s bridal shower gift at Bed Bath & Beyond. I spotted the most beautiful tiered stand which was black and white with a pretty pattern and a silver center handle. It was the most delicate glass tiered stand I had ever seen and I began to ration about what I could possibly use it for… use it for? EVERYTHING. Cookies. Cakes. Cupcakes. Pies. Macarons. Tarts. (Suddenly, I’m a short order chef? Crazy things happen when you’re about to make a purchase, I tell you.) Earrings. Jewelry. Fancy things. I don’t know… but I wanted it. I didn’t buy it because I was on a mission for the bridal shower gift, but later that evening I perused Etsy for hours. I found all kinds of tiered stands – vintage tiered stands made from tea cups to modern cake stands like the one I spotted at the store. If only I had known of my love for tiered stands – and how to make them – while planning my own wedding! Well, it is my pleasure to share with you today one of the cutest DIY tiered stand tutorials I have ever seen, perfect for your wedding day and beyond in your love nest. One bummer alert, though: these are not food or dishwasher safe. Instead, display things like flowers, jewelry, non-food favors, etc. And, promise us one thing – if you do make this project, send us the pictures – we’d love to see them!
So… who knew you could take a quick trip to the dollar store (no joke!) and pick up a few of these…
and turn them into these pretties?
It’s true. Best of all, you can paint them any color you wish. We spotted this incredible diy tiered stands tutorial at Joy’s Hope where you can get the full diy scoop. I’m definitely making one of these over the weekend – I can’t wait to it pretty it up in baby blues to hold my jewelry. Will you be making one?
