DIY Spring Mini Wood Riser

4 Materials
30 Minutes

Hi everyone! I hope all is well, and that you all have been enjoying life. Last week we got some snow. We were able to enjoy time at home, and during this time I decided to work on my next craft. I decided to create a Spring mini wood riser.

This craft is beginner friendly, and I was able to create it in around 30 minutes. If you're ready, let's begin creating your very own Spring mini wood riser.

Material List

One mini round chopping board

I picked mine up at Hobby Lobby on sale from $7.99 to $4.79

One pack of tissue paper - Mauve floral $ 1.49

Purchased mine at Hobby Lobby


I'm using white, and a light lavender color

Mod Podge


Hot glue or E6000- I ended up using my E6000 adhesive

One pack of wood pegs

Purchased mine at Hobby lobby

My total cost for this project was around $7

Start by taking your paint brush and applying a layer of your mod podge onto the top surface of your cutting board.

Next, take your tissue paper, and lay a layer of it on top of the mod podge. Be sure to smooth out any wrinkles, or bubbles that may show up when applying your tissue paper.

Once you lay your tissue paper on top, take your paintbrush, and apply a layer of mod podge onto your tissue paper.

Once you have applied your tissue paper, you can take a heat gun, or blow dryer and apply some heat to help with the drying process. Be sure to set it on low heat.

Once your mod podge is completely dry, take your scissors and cut around the outer sections around your cutting board. You want to remove any extra tissue paper around the outer section. You can also use a sanding block.

I used scissors because I wanted just a little tissue paper around the outer section.

Once you have cut any extra tissue paper, apply some of your mod podge around your cutting board. This will apply any leftover tissue paper on the outer section.

Allow the mod podge to completely dry.

Now you're ready to apply your paint. Start off with your purple paint, and apply it around the outer section below the tissue paper. I applied around two coats of paint.

Next, flip your board and apply your purple paint to the bottom side of your board. Be sure to completely cover the bottom surface with your paint.

Set your board aside, and allow it to dry.

Next, take your wood pegs, and apply white paint to fully cover each peg. I used around two coats of paint on each peg.

Once your wood pegs are completely dry, flip your cutting board, and attach them using either hot glue or any other adhesive of your choice. I used E6000.

Allow the pegs to dry, and once dry you can flip them over.

You're all done! I'm using my mini wood riser for displaying my candles. I'd love to know what you will use yours for. Be sure to leave a comment below letting me know.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I'll see you soon.

    This is so cute! Would make a great little riser for a small plant, too!
