Barbie Halloween Tiered Tray DIY -Pill Bottle Caps and Beads

I love tiered trays and thought it would be fun to make a Halloween one for Barbie:@) My inspiration was some old plastic pill bottles I was given to craft with, and thought the flat tops with the raised words ~CAUTION Not Child Resistant~ were a perfect play on words to hold candy and treats... My base and risers are simply wooden beads from the craft stash. And embellishments could be anything you have, I used pom-pom ribbon and rick-rack trim. 

What I did:
  1. Colored the raised letters with a black Sharpie, let that dry.
  2. Super glued my base bead to the underside of the lower plate.
  3. Super glued bead to underside of upper plate. I decided I wanted a little more surface area to hold the top plate onto the bottom one, so I glued a small wooden disc to the bottom of that bead, Aleen's Turbo Tacky Glue worked well.
  4. These caps had a small tab to help open them, I cut that off as best I could to keep the sides flat and round.
  5. Glued sewing trim around the edges of the plates, let that dry. You could use washi tape, glitter, ribbon, stickers. anything...
  6. Glue upper plate to bottom plate. I ended up using Aleene's Turbo Tacky Glue, it was neater than hot glue.
  7. At this point you have the serving tray๐Ÿ˜Ž...
  8. Further embellishments? Stickers, glue on mini spiders, maybe add a third tier, the options are limitless.
  9. Note: For more rigorous doll play, you may want to drill a hole in the center of the caps and screw them to the beads. My tray is only used as a photo prop.

Is your Barbie having a Halloween party this year? Here's another fun idea, skeleton serving utensils from a Dollar Tree skeleton.

We do acknowledge it might be a little early for Halloween... But we believe in running with craft inspiration any time it strikes!
Also, Barbie says party planning takes time๐Ÿ˜‰

๐ŸŽƒMake something just for fun and have a happy day!
