DIY: 3 Tiered Snack Plate

Last week, I decided I wanted to make the newest craze (writing on mugs), however, I decided to use up some stuff I already had here instead.  So, I kinda combined the idea of writing on mugs and used plates instead.  I still plan on making some mugs too….later. Here’s my DIY: 3 tiered snack plate 3 Tiered Snack Cake FI

SUPPLIES NEEDED FOR THIS PROJECT:

2 Candlesticks


3 White Glass Plates (small, medium & large)

Spray Paint Sharpie(s)

E6000 Glue

 

 

Candlesticks

3 White Glass Plates

E6000 Glue

INSTRUCTIONS:

1 – Start by making whatever design you want on your plates with your sharpie(s).  I went with the broken glass look and chose yellow & orange.

2 – Put plates in the oven, then turn on to 350 degrees.  Let bake for 30 minutes.  After 30 minutes, turn oven off, but leave the plates in until cool. NOTE:  Do not preheat the oven. Expect the color to fade a bit after baking. See \/ below.

3 – While the plates are baking, spray paint the candlesticks, if desired. Apply as many coats as you need.   Spray Paint Candlesticks Spray Painted Candlesticks                   4 – Time to glue it all together.  Apply the glue on the bottom of the candlestick, wait a few minutes for the glue to get a little tacky.  Place the glued end on the big plate. Make sure you’re centered.

5 – Apply glue to the top of the first/bottom candlestick. Allow a few minutes to get tacky and the place the medium sized plate on top.  Make sure it’s centered.

Of course, you can choose whatever colors you want for the sharpies and the candlesticks.  I let Sarah choose for us and she wanted a variety instead of two-tone.

What colors would you pick?

Rock on!

  2. What an interesting design you put on your plates. Did you use all plates and candle sticks from $tree? If so don’t know what we’d all do without them. I love $tree stores especially and other $ stores also. My first go to is $tree. We have a Family $ closer to us and $general just little further but I’ve sure gotten spoiled with only having to pay $1 for everything, just means we have to go to Grand Junction to go to one. We lived about 18 miles west of G.J. so not a place we head for too often. Great tutorial and project.

    1. Hi JaneEllen! I did use it all from $ tree. And we have the same problem, the nearest $ tree is about 20 miles away. When I shop at the other $ stores, I think they’re way overpriced. Love love love the $ tree where everything is a $.
      Thanks for stopping by and your compliment!! Have a great week!
