Tired trays all a big thing all over Instagram. In fact, there is a hashtag called tiered trays of Instagram that I like to follow to get simple and easy decorating ideas from. One of the reasons I love a tiered tray so much is because it allows you decorate the tray seasonally if you wish holiday to holiday, or year-round with on style or display.
I love decorating seasonally, and in fact, this exact tiered tray I bought years ago and have been styling since in my home. I can’t believe that I haven’t shared any of my tiered displays. It is one of the easiest ways to start decorating or living seasonally.

And while the tiered tray I noted above can be a little pricey, you can create the look for a whole lot less. My friend Melanie over at Simple Made Pretty created the idea behind this tiered tray that I am sharing with you. I have taken her idea and added to it a fun twist and handles! You can check her hers out here.
How To Create A Tiered Tray
Creating this super affordable tiered tray only cost me just at $3 to make. I think this is pretty good when it comes to adding the upper centerpiece and handles like some of the higher-end tiered trays will have.
Plus, my favorite part of the “handles” located at the top is that they can double up as a card placement holder for a cute sign or even printable card that you may want to display. Change the card up with holidays and seasons for a new updated look.
Dollar Tree Tiered Tray Supplies
In order to make this Dollar Tree Tiered Tray, you will need to gather up your supplies.
- Dollar Tree burner covers (2 come to a package)
- 1 Ninja toy ( use will use only one of the pieces in the toy)
- 12 Wood Blocks for feet of tray (also from the toy/game section at Dollar Tree)
- White spray paint or color of your choice – this is my favorite.
- Twine from the Dollar Tree (floral section)
- Dollar Tree (6 pack from office section)
- Sharpie paint pens
- Glue Gun or E6000 glue

Making the Handles
The next part you will want to create is the handles to be placed at the top of the second tier of the tray. Using two of the notebook rings, tie a piece of twine in a knot at the hinge. Then wrap the twin around the hinge for a good amount and hot glue in place.
Make sure you cover the hinge completely. I found about an inch wide of twine is good for this part of the DIY.
Using only the bottom section of one of the Ninja toy stick, cut in two sections. One section will be two-thirds and the other one-third. The one-third section should be the part that has the cross end that was in the lighter brown piece of the toy.
Using hot glue, secure the two notebook rings wrapped in twine to the end of the shorter piece. Using more twine, tie on to the toy stick and wrap all the way up to the rings. Secure with hot glue as you proceed to the top. Cover every section.
Putting the Stand Together
Now it is time to put the stand together. Using hot glue secure the wood blocks to the bottom of the larger tray. I double-stacked my pieces creating 4 feet around the outer rim of the tray, and another 4 books in the middle of the tray to add extra support.
Glue the larger piece of the Ninja toy stick to the bottom tray in the center. Place your smaller tray on top, and glue into place. Lastly, glue and secure the smaller stick and handles section to the tray.
Here is a video I took creating the tray.
What do you think? Do you think you might create one of these easy Dollar Tree Tiered Trays for yourself?
One last thing you can do for an added touch is to use a sharpie paint pen or marker to color to the rim around the edges of the trays. It gives it that farmhouse look you might be going for in your home decor.
