This DIY project is so simple, and uses just a few materials. I was able to build two simple wood risers for around $8.



Hello everyone! I hope everyone is doing well. I wanted to share another simple DIY project with you. This project was very simple, and I only paid around $8 to build my wood risers. If you're ready, let's start creating!


Be sure to check out the video tutorial.


Material list

Two 6.5'' wood circles


One bag of wood doll heads (These are used for the legs) You will need 8 wood doll heads.


Gold wire (Optional)


White paint, and black paint


Adhesive (I used E6000 for gluing the legs onto the wood circles)


Hot glue (This will be used for attaching the gold wire)


Wire cutters/scissors (Depending on how thick your wire is)


Paint brushes


Creating your risers


Start with taking some of your white paint, and applying paint onto both wood circles. I needed about three coats of paint to cover completely, and to give it a smooth appearance.


Set your wood circles aside, and allow them to dry. I did not paint the bottom side of my circles, but you can if you would like to.

Next, take your wood doll heads, and apply black paint on each of them. Set them aside, and allow to dry.

Once they have completely dried, you can now take your adhesive and add them on the bottom side of your wood circles. Each wood circle will have four added to the bottom.


Take your gold wire, and cut three medium sections out. Once you have cut three sections, take the ends and twist them. You will do this on the two ends.


Once you have completed that step, take your gold wire, and use hot glue to add them on the top of your wood circles.

You will form a circle on the top, and glue them down. This is optional, but I love working with gold wire, and really just wanted that look on my risers.


Decorating your wood risers

Once your wood risers are complete you can now decorate them. Most of the decorations I am using were discounted.


Add a candle, some holiday greenery, and maybe even a cute ornament. I had a few holiday greenery from other crafts leftover, but you can go with any decoration.


You could even add some mini led lights to your risers, and a glass candle design with twine, and cinnamon sticks

You can even add some dried oranges, and greenery to a small glass jar, and add a mini wreath. Be sure to make it your own, and have fun with it.


Find the perfect spot to display, and you're all done! I hope that you enjoyed this simple DIY project. Be sure to check out more of my crafts, and of course stop by and say hello in the comments below. I love hearing from all of you.


I'll see you soon!
