Tiered Tray Ideas for Spring Decor

Tiered Trays for Spring

Tiered trays are amazing, I have a three or four, okay five and I enjoy using every one of them.    Whether you purchase one or make your own, if you haven’t gotten one yet I highly recommend investing in one.  In today’s post, I am sharing several DIY tutorials for Spring themed tiered trays.  Spring trays are so fun to put together, a perfect way to add a pop of interest, and my favorite use is to organize.   In an average size home like mine, space is at a premium so I tend to have dual purpose trays, pretty and extra storage.

Tiered trays are perfect for any seasonal decor, but as we are in the worst part of Winter, I am hunkered indoors and planning for Spring.  Its the perfect time to start sorting through cabinets and storage areas for pieces you already have to add some colour to your home.

This is so easy to complete, I just grabbed some moss, teacups, little decor items and made an Easter egg hunt out of it.

You can use tiered trays to display your crafts, small chalkboard signs, or tiny printables in frames.   This tray features some really pretty and fun cabbages made from coffee filters.

Trays for a Pop of Colour

How about adding a specific trendy pop of colour to your Spring home decor?  This is a beautiful example and you could DIY many of these items with some dollar store craft supplies and pretty paint.

I love the way she put this tray together with the soft turquoise theme and what’s more Springtime then birdhouses.

Tiered Trays for Organizing

If your wanting to add a pop of Spring colour to your decor without it being purely decorative, here is a tray I recently created for my kitchen.   My teapot was getting used enough in this cold weather that I wanted it on the counter.    The tray uses no more counter space than the tea set did on its own, and it prompts everyone to put it back where it belongs.

In the middle of writing this post, I  was describing how you could create a simple cereal breakfast bar tray.    Such a  super easy way to set the table.    I thought it was better to share a picture so I left my laptop and ten minutes later I had this tray put together.

To be perfect it would look nicer with turquoise mugs, but I think it looks pretty with what I had on hand and its a perfect example of how versatile these trays are.

The tray has bowls, knives, plates, coffee mugs, pretty glasses, napkin and the milk pitcher.  A box of cereal, a loaf of bread, and the toaster and your all set.

Here is another pretty way to leave your everyday kitchen necessities on the counter.  Begin with salt and pepper shakers,  mugs,  a  pretty bunny, then finish your tray with some Spring florals or linens.

I am currently putting together two different DIY tray makeovers for the bathroom.  One tray is almost done except pretty labels and I need to find a bit that cuts glass to complete the second tray.  If you haven’t purchased a tiered tray yet, I really encourage you to take a look through Pinterest.  There are so many DIY tutorials on how to make your own tiered trays.

I promise if you get one you will love it.  Diamonds are still a girl’s best friend, but wow these trays are wonderful.


  1. I love that you can take the same tray and decorate it to whatever season it is! Plus an added bonus that they keep things all nice and organised!

    1. Thank you Sam. Tiered trays are always awesome, I never walk by one without wanting it lol

  5. I’ve been wanting to grab a tiered tray. Love all the ideas for them.

  6. I adore all of your tiered tray ideas, Leanna! I’ve made a couple and my favorite is one I use in my craft room. I’m thinking I may just need to make another one or borrow that one to use in my kitchen with Easter/Spring cuties on it!

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      I really think they are great, so many different ways to use them.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Thank you, Stacey. I am going to pop on over to your Pinterest account and check it out right now.

  7. These are such cute ideas! I love tiered trays, but only have one right now, and it has small sections, so it’s a little hard to work with. I might just have to make some!

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Glad you love them. I too am working on a diy version, but am slowly thrift store shopping for the perfect pieces. My stash is about 3/4 done so I hope to have some pretty ones finished by Spring.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Thank you very much Sam. I love creating them and find them so versatile to decorate with.

  8. Leanna,
    I have a few of these tiered trays kicking around my house! I need to dust them off and play with them. Your ideas a so fabulous, thanks so much for all the inspiration!

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Thank you, Janine. They really are so fun to decorate with them, I love how you said play. It’s so true, they really are fun.

  9. These are so pretty. I have a couple of tiered cake stands which I use all the time for cakes when we have parties, but these tray ideas are next level.
    I’ll have to have a look round the house and see where we “need” something like this.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      Hi Julie, I especially love using them on my table. I whine all the time that we don’t have a separate dining room, so the trays are an easy way to create an easily movable seasonal centerpiece.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      I look forward to seeing a diy project on Our Crafty Mom. You really need more than just one of these for your gorgeous townhouse.

  10. So many gorgeous ideas Leanna and I love that really cute one you have in your kitchen. Where did you find that little beauty?

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      The kitchen tiered shelf came from a local country store I have to drive 45 k too and from to go visit. Its worth the trip, but I only go three or four times a year. I love it because the sides are high and I feel like it keeps the treasures safe from sliding off.

  11. I love all of the ideas you shared on how to display using tiered trays. It makes me want to make some more. I sold mine.

    1. LeannaForsythe says:

      I really do love them Debra. I am currently looking for some thrift store supplies to make some more. They are so handy for organizing and decor.
