DIY Tier Server How-TO!

Remember this?
Well, I am going to share with you the how-to on this beautiful nested tier server.

Here are the supplies you need:
Two cardboard cake rounds (any size you would like--these are 12" and 16")
Scissors
Double sided tape
Ribbon (not pictured)
Scrapbook paper of your choice
2 cans of vegetables or soup
Wreaths in the matching size of your cake rounds
This is the general idea. Stack the two cans of vegetables on top of each other and the larger cake round, then stack the small round on top of them both.
To start, you need to cover your rounds with your choice of scrapbook paper and use double sided tape to secure. This is tricky because of the size of scrapbook paper, but if you buy a pattern that repeats, or a solid color, you should be good to go.
Next, I covered the outer edges of the cake rounds with a coordinating ribbon, so that the ugly corrugated cardboard did not show.
Then, secure your cans together by stacking them and then taping them longways and also around the rims. Once you have done that, roll the cans in scrapbook paper and secure with double stick tape. Fold the edges down as you would when wrapping a present.
Stack the stand again, as practiced above.
Add wreaths and voila!  You have completed your own DIY dessert stand!
I added additional feathers and some little birds for height and for some va-va-voom.
