This past weekend, I recently took over my husband’s office and made it into my very own personal craft room. I was bringing over many of my things and wanted to display it on something cute. So I decided to make a two-tiered “cupcake” organizer. If you enjoy this tutorial, please be sure to subscribe to my blog for more DIY crafty goodness.

It is super simple to put together and also super cheap. It literally cost me under $5 to put this all together. You can put your jewelry on it, makeup, nail polishes, or anything extra.


Different sized glass plates, so you can get that nice graduated look from top to bottom. The glass plates you see in my project came from the dollar store.

Glass candlestick holder – I could not find any at the dollar store, so I got mine at Marshall’s.

Glass Paint – I used Martha Stewart in Pearl, I got mine at Michaels.

Paint Brush or Sponge

Industrial Glue – I got mine at Michaels

Clear Gloss Protective Enamel – I got mine at Lowe’s


Glue a candlestick holder to the center of your largest plate using the industrial glue. Firmly press the lower tier to the glue for 30 seconds. Then, apply glue to the top of the candlestick and center the top tier on the candlestick. Let it sit for an hour to dry. 

Now onto painting… Squeeze the bottle of glass paint to the plate. Paint until fully covered. Let it dry for about 2 hours and apply another coat. Let it dry for another 2 hour and then spray the clear gloss protective on to the plate. After it is fully dry, if you like, you can deck your stand out with flowers, pearls, etc. I left mine as is.


There you have it. You now have a jewelry/makeup/anything-you-like organizer vanity stand. Let me know if there is any DIY project you would like for me to do in the comment section below.
