Welcome to the March Pinterest Challenge hosted by My Pinterventures! This challenge is a great way to actually try all of those pins that you have been hoarding!
I’ve been wanting to create a three-tiered stand for a while now, but wasn’t sure what to use to make it! Last summer, at a craft fair in Ocean City, NJ, I came across these gorgeous round cedar slabs! The moment I saw the piles of round wooden slabs stacked up on the ground, I knew that they would make such a cute three-tiered stand!
I thought I’d be able to make it this past summer. Bahahaha! What can I say? I’m an optimist! Now that half of a year has gone by, I’m finally making my first three-tiered stand! It must have been meant to be, because this stand goes so well with my spring decor!
Take a deep breath…some of you might want to stop reading now.
I decided to spray paint the slabs a glossy white, because they were a little too rustic in their natural state! Well, the cedar slabs had other plans. They laughed in my face and said, “We will not be painted with your silly glossy white spray paint!” I gave up after the third coat was absorbed! It was actually a pretty cool sight to witness. The paint was just sucked up by the tree slabs!
In the end, I’m happy with how the three-tiered stand turned out! Although it did not end up a glossy white, it got a whitewash that I can live with!
The supports for the three-tiered stand are two clay candlesticks that I hot glued onto the wooden slabs. I had gotten them from West Elm several years ago. They were already white, so I did not need to paint them!
Details to DIY the Three-Tiered Stand:
- Wooden slabs (You can find some HERE or HERE.)
- Two Candlesticks of different sizes
- Glue gun and glue sticks
- White spray paint
First, paint your wooden slabs or whatever you are using as your tiers.
Next, take your three-tiered stand for a test drive! Line up the candlesticks and slabs to see where you want them and to make sure that everything is centered and balanced. Using a pencil, trace around the base of your candlesticks to mark where you want to glue them onto the wooden slabs.
Finally, use your hot glue gun to adhere your candlesticks to your wooden slabs. Place them in the exact spot that you marked with your pencil.
That’s it! If you plan to put something heavy on your three-tiered stand or if you think it will be bumped or jostled a lot, you will want to use something more than just hot glue to adhere your candlesticks to your wooden slabs!
Now you can add your decor! I placed my three-tiered stand on my dining room table that I decorated for Easter. You’ll get a sneak peek at my Easter tablescape that I’ll be sharing on Thursday!
I added some spring pieces to my three-tiered stand, including a DIY Bunny Succulent Planter that I’ll be posting about soon if you are interested in making one! I wanted to mix in different patterns and styles to even out the rustic nature of the stand. That’s why I included the white porcelain bunny planter and the cutesy polkadot pink and blue eggs from, where else, the Target dollar spot!
