Two Tier Serving Tray

Present your sweets in Homespun style!It is nice to have options with your serving pieces when it comes to hosting a party or special event! For us, the more options the better! Having more options is easier to obtain when you can put these pieces together for yourself and save money. Once again we have taken some very simple items and put them together, resulting in a great, functional, inexpensive, but impressive serving piece! Learn how....

  For this project we used two trays and one candle stick. We found ours at the Dollar Tree.
We inverted the candlestick and glued it's top onto the face of one tray, and the bottom of the candlestick onto the bottom of the other tray. We preferred this look better.We wanted to keep the piece silver, so no paint or decoupage this time!

  Here are a couple sweet ideas for serving here!

Aren't they the cutest sweet and savory foods?!
We found them at Michael's in the clearance bins. You will never believe how much we paid for them..................ready?!

$1.20 each!!!!!
We have been wanting some of these and were ready to buy some off Etsy until we spotted these! These will be perfect for a birthday party bake shop, sweet shop or tea party!

We hope we have inspired you!
Remember, keep it Homespun!

The earth is the Lord's, and everything in it,
the world, and all who live in it;
for he founded it upon the seas
and established it upon the waters.
Psalm 24:1
Homespun With Love
