How To Make A Spinning Two Tier Tray
This is one of those projects which began months ago then transitioned. You have a few of those, right? I knew from the beginning that I wanted it for craft room storage but I saw how cool it would be for Christmas season decor too.
Who doesn’t love a good two tier stand? They are so useful around the house and fun pieces of functional decor. Making it spin just made this one even better! Do you remember when I made this Two Tier Pin Cushion or upcycled picture frames into this pretty Two Tier Tray?
- Pizza pan for the bottom
- Cake pan for the top
- Thick round candle holder
- Lazy Susan 6″, here on Amazon
- Acrylic Craft Paint (Pink)
- Krylon Maxx Leather Brown gloss spray paint
- E6000 glue
- Mod Podge
- DecoArt Tutti Fruitti acrylic paint
- 1 piece of pretty craft paper (I used a toile design)
- Washi tape
The other components of this project include an old Domino’s pizza pan which I was almost giddy for finding! I paid close to $4 for it at a thrift store which is a high price coming from my pocket! The cashier asked me what I was going to do with it and agreed it was the perfect piece when I told her.
Don’t you just love how thick this wooden candle holder is! I knew it would be perfect for this project when I spied it in the thrift store that day. It is solid and the heaviest part of this project.
The first thing I did was to spray paint the candle holder and pans with brown paint. I chose brown because I love the look of pink and brown together which is what I’m splashing about in my craft space.
I went ahead and painted both of the pans to match the candle holder. You will see in a minute how I added the pink accent stripes.
Next I measured and cut a pretty piece of craft paper to decorate the inside of the bottom tier. I used Mod Podge to glue it into place and then gave it a top coat of Mod Podge as a sealer.
After applying a generous amount of E6000 glue between the candle holder and the cake pan, I weighed it down with heavy vintage cookbooks. See, a cookbook collection does come in handy!
I repeated the process to attach the candle holder to the pizza pan and allowed ample drying time.
If you have seen any of my projects before, you know I am a fan of pretty craft paper. When I bought this pretty toile print, I didn’t even have a project in mind! I found it at Hobby Lobby.
So I loved the look for the brown two tier spinning tray. The depth on the top achieved by using a cake pan and the lip on the bottom from the pizza pan were nice touches. I had to use it for a cocoa bar before it’s finally resting place in my craft room.
Adulting means doing a whole lot of waiting. Adults wait on everything and this project is living proof from me. I did indeed wait until after Christmas to add the pink and relocate this tray into the craft room.
I used narrow Washi tape to create the ‘V’ pattern on the cake pan. After adding all of the tape I painted the area with my pink paint and let it dry. Removed the tape and there ya have it, a pretty pink and brown accent. Not too much, just enough.
Three coats of DecoArt Tutti Fruitti acrylic paint later and this project is complete.
Finished Spinning Two Tier Tray
You might recall my repurposed mayonnaise jars. They are perfect for craft room storage. I have been painting the lids brown and pink to match my craft room colors. Using Mod Podge and pretty paper, I added a little character to the fronts of some.
This DIY Two Tier Tray was a simple and easy project anyone can do with minimal craft skills. It’s mostly just paint and glue and a little imagination. This spinning storage tray solved a craft supplies storage problem for me. It sits to my right on my craft table and is without a doubt one of the most used tools in my craft room.
