How to Make Tiered Tray Signs | Mini Wood Signs | Christmas Decor

Hey, all my crafty friends! So who's ready to do some Christmas crafting? 🖐

I hope you like this video and find some inspiration to go and do something fun in your home too!

In today's video, I will show you how I make mini tiered tray signs. This is a simple project and I just love making these cute little signs. 

I started out my crafting adventure by making larger wood signs and I really enjoyed it. But the shipping on these was so high I decided I needed to use lighter wood or make smaller signs. That's about the time tiered trays were becoming so popular. Theses signs are so cute!

This is a great hand-made gift idea for the holidays. Perfect for friends, family, co-workers or secret Santa gifts.

Project Steps

Step 1 - Creating stain out of acrylic paint


Step 2.


Step 3 - My Secret. (Don't Tell Anybody This!)


Step 4. The Finishing Touches.

  • Once all the signs were ready I added a layer of mod podge to give them more of a finished look. 

  • I also added pieces of twine to the back of each ornament so it could be hung on the tree or sat on a tiered tray, counter, table, or any flat surface.
