Tiered Pie Plate Stand

One inspiration photo from Flea Market Style magazine.
Two old pie tins.
 And one vintage wood spool.
 Cut the spool into three pieces.
 Then glue pieces to the pie tins.
 One finished tiered pie plate stand.
 I really like how the metal on the spool matches the patina of the old pie tins.
The hardest part of the project was lining up the spool pieces to make it look like one uncut piece of wood.
Now....what to put in it??

  14. Great idea, but I just sold all my pie tins...darn. I really think those tiny pumpkins would look cute on it or even tiny muffins.

  15. Love it again Jane! I recently made a huge one to hold cupcakes for my friend's son's graduation. I used a cut up pepper mill as the center... Love your little one! Great to hold an appetizer!

  34. Jane, I saw something similar at the barn sale I was at this past weekend. They had 3 large baking pans w/old rolling pins as the center. Most were priced in the three digit range. I found a local source who sells them for $55. But now that I see how you created them, I think I need to make my own! Just have to find me some old pans and a rolling pin out on my thrifting jaunts. Thanks for showing how you did it- I couldn't figure it out! Crafting talent is not one of my strong suits! LOL But I CAN decorate~
