Mini Tiered Trays

You all know by now how much I love my tiered tray!  So much so that I created mini tiered trays for Christmas gifts!  
 The size is approximately 3" wide by 5" tall.

Here it is in my cubby on the bottom right hand corner.

So how did I make them?  It all started with a bag of various size wood slices.  I chose the largest and second largest pieces.  

I've included links from Amazon for similar items.  I bought mine at Craft Warehouse here in Boise.

You need 1/4" Dowels, I bought a pack of them and cut them down to 5".

I  drilled holes in the wood slices and cut the dowels to 5".  Inserted the dowels through the wood and added a spot of E6000 glue to the dowel. Then, I glued the finial to the top.  I also glued little tiny wooden beads to the bottom for feet.

I decorated them with items from the miniature section of the craft store.  I added greenery to the basket and made felt flowers for the wheelbarrow.  
I painted wooden hearts and added ribbon around them.  I glued two hearts together so they would be wide enough to stand up.
The tiny apothecary glass jars are filled with sugar and I glued the cork so it would not spill.

I bought the tiny birds nest and added plastic eggs.  
The white bottle brush trees were in the Christmas section (similar to these).

What do you think, are you ready to make some??
