TBC CRAFTER’S HOP (#TBCCRAFTERS) – 07/11/2013
For today’s craft, I wanted to make something that could be used for picnics or home entertaining and had seen something like this on FaveCrafts, but wanted to change it up and make it my own. However you wish to make it and whatever you decide to use, can mean so many different styles, etc. All of them helping to make the table look great! Hope you enjoy!!
“DIY Serving Platter” Craft
- Dinner Plate (material and shape, your choice)
- Salad Plate (material and shape, your choice)
- Pieces to Use As Stand (if you want), & Center
- Glue Gun
- & Time!!
Begin by washing and drying all of the pieces involved. I bought mine at Dollar Tree, so they weren’t some from a yard sale that needed a lot of cleaning.
Center the piece you are using on the bottom of the dinner plate, and glue into place.
Now, center the one you are using for the center on the smaller plate, and glue into place.
When both of these are dry, glue the top plate with the middle piece attached to the center of the bottom plate. Make sure that any extra glue is cleaned up, so that there aren’t any bubbles, or weird looking spots at the place you can see. I usually use a Q-Tip or Popsicle stick to even it out around the edges.
When all is dry, you’re ready to go – just arrange whatever you wish on each plate and have it out on your serving table.
It always looks best when you have different levels on the place where people get everything – no more boring flat serving table for me. You can even do it a bit different with a bowl and plate and make a cake stand like this:

wow I love this!
Love the colors of plates you used and how you created the base. I am definitely trying this!
Thanks Dawn – I just love that you can change it up however you want and it’s under $5!!
I’m loving this, where did you find the glass pieces to make it all?
I bought almost everything at Dollar Tree – it was a small glass candy dish that I used the top for the bottom of this and then a candle stick. Cheap, easy and personal!
What a neat idea! I really wanted one of these for my cupcakes but I never thought of making one!
It sure was a lot cheaper than the ones in the store and you can make it match anything!!
