Hope everyone is having a great week!! Our mom’s birthday is tomorrow, and I thought it would be fun to make her this next project. She pretty much wants 1 of everything we make anyway, so it works!
I made her a Tiered Basket Tray, and here is how it turned out!
This is super easy to make… And no power tools needed!
I found all of my supplies at Hobby Lobby.
I found the baskets 1/2 off and spent $9 on both of them together. They had lots of shallow baskets like this one to choose from!
I used a small candlestick for my base piece. They are sold in a bag of 6.
I used these unfinished candlesticks. You can find them in the unfinished wood section, and you can also buy them from HL online!
I also got 2 thin wood ovals for $.79 a piece… Same section!
I used these wood circles. I bought 1 large one and 2 smaller ones.
And the key ingredient in this project is the Gorilla Glue Epoxy! I love this stuff. It has the consistency of hot glue, but a super permanent hold! It is a bit stinky, but that totally goes away when it dries!
All you do is squeeze equal parts of both onto a tray (or really professional dixie plate ;-)) and mix it really well.
I attached my candlestick parts like this…
And my base part like this…
I gave those 3 pieces a coat of my very fav…
Rust-Oleum Painter’s Touch in Heirloom White
After they dried I added some Gorilla Glue Epoxy to the top of my base part…
I attached my larger basket to this piece… Make sure to let it dry really good. It’s a good idea to put something heavy like a book or something there while it dries.
Next, I used the epoxy to attach my first candlestick piece and the smaller basket.
My last step was attaching my other candlestick piece using the epoxy. I decided to top this one off with a fun knob to add some color! You can epoxy it to the top, and you may need to drill a hole in the candlestick for the screw. That’s it!
Pretty darn easy! And pretty cute I think! She is always looking for something to hold plastic forks and spoons when we have parties and I think this would fit the bill! I love it!
Hope you like it!
Hope she does too! Happy Birthday Mama! We love you so much!
I would love for you to PIN this baby and share it below
