DIY – Three tier servers

Like I said: I have been obsessed with (making) these three tier servers.

You need:

  • 3 plates in different sizes
  • 2 candle holders or other appropriate items to stack the plates
  • Two-component adhesive
  • a pencil to mark where to glue what

The first time I made these I went through a complicated process of figuring out the exact center of each plate and the candle holders. It was time-consuming, and I realized that it was no guarantee for getting everything perfectly centered anyway. So now I am just going with my visual judgment, which works fine, so I recommend you do the same.

To glue the pieces together, follow the instructions of the specific glue you’re using. With the one I used, that meant applying glue on both objects you want to glue together, not just on the one of them. That’s all, now you just need to wait for the glue to do its thing.

Yes, La, you guessed it …

… this one is for you.

This one’s a little more funky:

I use candle holders to stack the plates.

As always …

… everything’s thrifted.

Well, except for the lemons. And the super-glue I use to keep everything from falling apart.

Which do you like better – romantic or “funky”?
