Ideas for Making a 3 Tier Stand

Three tier pedestal stands are nice to have for parties, especially when you are limited on space to display food. The stands also help group foods to make it easier for guests to understand which foods are meant to be served together. Buying three tier stands can be expensive, and trying to find one that matches your decor may prove difficult. Making a three tier stand can be fun and yield great results.

Glass Plate 3 Tier Stand

Drill a hole through the centre of a dinner plate, a lunch plate and a bread plate. Separate the tiers by using hollow candlesticks. Stick an allthread (available at hardware stores) through all three plates and the candlesticks. Cut off the excess allthread, thread on a washer and screw a bolt to the bottom plate to hold it together. Screw a decorative drawer pull to the top.

Paper Plate Stand

For a quick and inexpensive three tier stand, use paper plates and cups. Set a sturdy paper plate on a flat surface and place a paper cup upside down in the centre. Run a line of hot glue around the lip of the cup to adhere it to the plate. Glue the bottom of a smaller plate to the other end of the paper cup. Repeat the steps for a third tier. Stack heavier foods on the bottom layer.

Cardboard Box Stand

Use three boxes that will stack proportionally and will still allow space around the perimeters to display cupcakes or whatever food you are serving. Wrap the three boxes in wrapping paper. Decorate the boxes by gluing a ribbon around the edges. Add sequins, buttons or other embellishments. Stack the boxes and secure them with rolled duct tape to add stability.

Styrofoam and Tea Cups Stand

Use three styrofoam discs in varying sizes. Cut wrapping paper to cover the top and bottom of the discs and use double face tape to secure. Glue ribbon to the edges to cover the styrofoam and create a finished look. Stack the discs with the largest one on the bottom and the smallest at the top. Hot glue a teacup in-between the layers.
