Two Tier Serving Platter

You can use any mismatch dishes (plate and bowl or plate and saucer) you have or pick up at a yard sale and turn them into a beautiful gift for someone you love, even yourself. This craft is great because it recycles used items instead of throwing them in our landfills.


Approximate Time: 15 minutes


  • 1 ceramic or glass plate
  • 1 ceramic or glass bowl
  • 1 metal, glass, or ceramic candle holder
  • E-6000 Adhesive (tube)


  1. Choose your plate and bowl or plate and saucer. Also choose a candle holder that is at least 3 inches high.
  2. Place a thin line of E-6000 adhesive along the bottom rim of the candle holder, then place the candle holder in the middle of the large plate.
  3. Place a thin line of adhesive along the top rim of the candle holder, then place the bowl or saucer on top of the candle holder.
  4. Allow your new two-tier serving platter to dry according to the instructions on the adhesive tube.

This can be used to hold cupcakes, fruit, or cookies; the uses are endless.

Enjoy and remember, Reuse - Reduce - Recycle

Really nice and clever idea. Would work for many

different foods or as a container for a floral centerpiece.

We will have to make one of these.

I've seen some nice looking glass pieces at the

Dollar Tree including candle holders. You could

make this for as little as $3 (or less) not counting the glue.

Thanks Mechille,

I love this project. I actually picked up two plates from a yard sale this weekend (Noritake china!) and a glass candle stick from the dollar store. My question is on the back of the e-6000 it states that you shouldn't use it on something that comes into contact with food. Is it safe when it dries? I have an e-6000 and want to do this project so badly.
