DIY Tiered Tray

Earlier this week I showed you how I made a footed cutting board using wooden egg cups. 

The wooden egg cups were found at Marshalls but similar are available online. 

Today, I'll show you what I did with the rest of the egg cups that came in that package.

I was really thrilled with this one and it's the perfect size for jewelry or the kitchen!

The package came with 6 wooden egg cups.

Originally meant for eggs but I turned 3 of them into the perfect legs for my round cutting board.

Now I'm going to use the other 3 egg cups.

I began with a ceramic dish from the Dollar Spot. 

I used Super Glue Gel to attach one of the egg cups to the center of the dish. 

I glued another cup on top of that one with the bases together.

On top of the second egg cup I glued a small desert dish that was the same color as my first dish but smaller. 

On top of that dish I glued another egg cup with the opening down.

Perfect little tiered tray that will be perfect for Spring decor like these Homeroad DIY vintage clothespin carrots.

You can find wooden egg cups on Amazon.

This tray will also look great on my dresser to hold jewelry. 

Why does this photo look like it is off center because it is not! 😂

The dresser tray was another Homeroad DIY project. 


Whatever the purpose, the acacia wood with the white plates looks amazing!
