Dollar Store DIY Serving Dishes

{Make party-perfect serving dishes from items at the dollar store}

I made these specifically for my kid-friendly Halloween party, but I'll be able to use them for anything.  And they're cheap enough that you could make a couple sets for different color schemes.

Tiered Plates
Dollar Store items: Pizza pan, pie plate, candlestick

I painted the candlestick with glass paint first before gluing it all together with E6000.  Mark the centers with a permanent marker so the candlestick goes right in the middle.

Pedestal Bowls
Dollar Store items: Plastic bowls, candlesticks

These candlesticks were painted with black spray paint then glued to the bottom of the bowls.

What's your favorite party item to pick up from dollar stores?

  1. How creative and cute! I also love to get dollar store items, mainly small wood frames and gift bags. Gift bows and ribbons are also very reasonably priced at many dollar stores :)

  2. Too cute, I need to buy some candle stick right now! I can totally see these serving dishes being used in everyday life and not just for parties :)

  3. Such a great idea! I'm hosting a giveaway for two modern printed kitchen towels that you should enter! http://homecomingmn.blogspot.com/2013/10/a-tea-towel-set-giveaway.html
