Guest Dollar Store Genius: Tiered Bowl

Barbara from Craftsty made this amazing display bowl to show off her adorable mushrooms.

Project Estimate:

  • 3 bowls, $3
  • 2 candlesticks, $2
  • Strong glue (E6000 on hand)

Total Cost: $5

This is a great idea for the holidays! Simple holiday decorating! Or use it for your next craft show display.

I made a 3 tier bowl set from items from my local dollar store!  The total cost was $5.00 and some strong glue because mine were made out of glass.  I bought 3 bowls and 2 candle sticks.  Set one bowl upside down and glue a candle stick in the middle and repeated again then place the last bowl uptop the candle stick.  Let it dry and flip over now you have a 3 tier bowl set.   They can be used for centerpieces with fruit or candies but I use mine in my craftroom.

Thanks for sharing your dollar store genius with us, Barbara!

    [...] own tiered serving dishes from trays and a candlestick, like this one at Tatertots & Jello, or this tiered bowl would also be especially great for a colorful candy display. Don't overlook the cylindrical vases! [...]

    I used Crazy Putty from Dollar Tree to make my own tiered display for muffins, cupcakes, etc. I already had plenty of glass plate options in various sizes, but I’m sure Dollar Stores have them if you don’t. I used Gold Silly Putty, found in the kid’s/craft section, rolle a small piece into a thin rope and put it around the edge of a candlestick or cup. Center plate and press onto Silly Putty. Add another candlestick or goblet and do it again! I’ve even used this when it was passed around a table for a family style meal, but Handle with care and hold by the bottom plate!!

    Hey this is a cool idea, but I’m wondering did u make the mushrooms or did you buy them? I’m a huge mushroom collectors and I love these wooden ones.
