I wanted something different to display my gnomes, add a little height and character to my decor, so I made this offset farmhouse tiered tray!
Offset Farmhouse Tiered Tray
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we are always trying to find fast and easy ways to add to the farmhouse decor in the house. I mean, changing things up is so fun and I just get tired of looking at the same thing all the time. So, I took down my round tiered tray and came up with this fun offset farmhouse tiered tray as an alternative.
Simple and cute, this farmhouse tray is just different enough from my normal tray that I can’t help but love it. And, I was able to make it form all Dollar Tree materials! If you’re ready to make a fun offset tiered tray, let’s get started.

Tips to Make A Dollar Tree Farmhouse Tiered Tray
- Because you never know what’s going to go into your top tray and how much pressure that joint line between the parts might face, I recommend using glue a little sturdier than your typical hot glue. I like to use E6000 glue like this, even though it takes longer to dry, just to add a bit more hold.
- I love making crafts with Dollar Tree supplies, but if you run into trouble finding the the little wood craft at the dollar store, you can grab a similar one here. It’s not exactly the same, but it’s close enough that you’ll still love the way it looks.
- Personally, I love a good gnome on my farmhouse tiered tray. I just grabbed the nearest gnome on my shelf to add to my tiered tray for the photos, but when I get it all set up in my entryway, I am going to make a couple kissing gnomes to add to the top tier!
How Do I Make this Offset Farmhouse Tiered Tray?
I’m so glad you asked. Below is our written tutorial.
- 1 4-inch Unfinished Mini-Crate
- 3 2x10-inch Wood Signs
- 4 1-inch Wood Cutoffs
- Candle Holder
- E6000 Glue
- White Chalk Paint
- Start by painting the wood crate, candle holder and front face of all three wood signs with the white paint. Allow the paint to dry completely and add a second coat for full coverage, if necessary.
- Glue the three wood signs together side-by-side along their long sides. Allow the glue to dry completely.
- Glue the candle holder to the bottom of the center of the crate. Allow the glue to dry completely.
- Glue a wood cutoff to the bottom corner of the glued-together signs, giving the tray a finished look. Allow the glue to dry completely.
- Position the candle holder to one side of the tray, about 3 inches from the left edge. Glue the candle holder in place. Allow the glue to dry completely. Then decorate and enjoy!
