We have stencils of all shapes and sizes. And while we typically paint large designs for hang on your wall, our smaller stencils are PERFECT for decorating tiered trays. 

Benefits of Decorating with a Tiered Tray

  1. Space Saver: Tiered trays allow you to decorate vertically, making them ideal for small or limited surface areas. 
  2. Organization: Tiered trays provide a structured way to organize and help prevent clutter by grouping similar items together. 
  3. Easy to Change: Decorating a tiered tray allows you to easily change and update your decor for seasons, holidays or your mood. 
  4. Showcase: Tiered trays give you the perfect opportunity to showcase your favorite decor pieces, collectibles or sentimental items.

Tips for Decorating a Tiered Tray 

  1. Pick a Theme: Decide on a theme or color scheme
  2. Balance: When arranging items on each tier, aim for balance in terms of size, shape and color. Mix different heights and textures. 
  3. Layering: Add depth and dimension to your display. Place larger items towards the back and smaller items towards the front. 
  4. Seasonal Touches: Switch out items on your tray to reflect the current season or holiday (like we do with the Easter items above)
  5. Functional Elements: Add functional elements to your tray, like a vase or bowl of potpourri. 
  6. Symmetry vs. Asymmetry: Symmetrical arrangements can create a formal and balanced look, while asymmetrical arrangements can feel more relaxed and dynamic.
  7. Personal Touches: Add framed photos, sentimental items or pieces that reflect your hobbies or interests.
