This is one of the most awesome upcycle projects ever and its incredibly useful and so cheap to make! All you need are some marbles and 2 cheap cake pans to make a Lazy Susan that works as well as the one’s you buy. With a little spray paint and some contact paper or scrapbook paper, it’s also quite pretty. Lazy Susan’s are pretty pricey so this is a way to make several for only a couple dollars each. This was part of our outdated kitchen transformation which included some other fun posts such as our Chicken Wire Memo Board and our Lovely Little DIY Sugar Bowl
This DIY Lazy Susan is one of the most awesome upcycle projects ever and it’s incredibly useful and inexpensive to make. Plus, it has all kinds of uses!
Lazy Susan Supplies
- 2 cake pans any size (we got ours for .88 each at Walmart)

Gather your items. IMPORTANT: You need enough marbles to COVER NEARLY THE ENTIRE BOTTOM OF THE PAN.
Spray paint your pans whatever color you choose. You don’t need to paint the inside of the bottom pan where the marbles will go.
Measure the inside of the pan for cutting your liner.
Cut out your contact paper or liner paper.
Place it in your pan.
Fill the bottom pan most of the way with marbles.
Set your top pan onto the marbles and your Lazy Susan is ready to use!
