Welcome friends! It’s time for one of my favorite challenges-the Thrift Store Decor Upcycle Challenge.

If you are new to Our Crafty Mom, I love to shop thrift stores, flea markets, yard sales and occasionally my neighbors trash-shhh, don’t tell! This is a monthly challenge where I team up with some really awesome bloggers who love thrifting as much as I do.

I am always amazed at the projects these ladies create and I am sure you will be too.

The Rules:

  • Upcycle an item(s) from a thrift store, resale store, or garage sale into a new piece of decor.
  • There’s no monthly theme.
  • There’s no budget to stick to.

Here is my tiered tray project for this month:

How To Make A Three Tiered Tray From Cake Pans Our Crafty Mom

I am sharing how to make a three tiered tray using cake pans from The Dollar Store! They also gave these all the time at thrift stores and yard sales, so keep an eye out if you want to make one.

You can paint it any color, or if you have some old cake pans with a great patina you may just want to leave it unpainted for a farmhouse look.  Of course I have it all decorated for Spring. I ended up making a farmhouse style version shown below:

I used the same faux metal technique.in this post.

Three Tiered Tray Supplies

  • 3 8″ cake pans
  • 2 glass candle holders
  • spray paint
  • E-6000

Total cost:  $9

I did not include the glue because I had that already and I used a 50% off coupon on the spray paint. Never pay full price!

I gave the pans and candle holders two good coats of spray paint letting it dry in between. Then I used E-6000 to adhere the pans to the candle holders.

It is that simple! But I seriously love it. It set the stage for my Spring Tablescape shown here:

I know I will be reusing this for different seasonal decorating and already have an idea for Summer! Can you imagine how pretty this will be decorated for fall with mini pumpkins and mums?
