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)
- Marbles, normal to smaller size. They must all be the same size. You need enough to almost cover the bottom of the pan.
- Spray paint (optional)
- Paper or contact paper for bottom of one pan (optional)

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!
Thank you this is awesome I have been trying to find a lazy Susan for my painting project and other projects. Great idea!
Great idea. Thank you
Omg! This is genius
I babysit for two little ones. Ages 3 and 5.
This will be perfect for them to make for parents for Christmas!
I love, love love this idea! I’m even thinking I will glue the top cake pan to a large round tray I have so I can put all my threads in the tray! Thank you so much for this idea! Dollar Tree, here I come with my mask on!
lol! You go girl! That’s a great idea. I’d love to see the finished project.
Good luck and thanks so much for visiting!
Looose marbles could be dangerous with children and pets!!
This is the best way to use my old cake pans since I do not bake cakes any more. Thank you for sharing this with us. I am going to make one for my spices. I can use one of these no my cabinet and in my cabinet for flavors.
Love this!!! Can’t wait to try it out. Just pricing the cheapest of the cheap plastic lazy Susan’s we’re about $22.00 for the ugliest plastic colors I’ve ever laid eyes on. So I would have to paint them or something adding additional time and money so this is perfect! Lazy Susan’s all around… get it… around? Haha
Seriously though, this is great! Thank you!
Me, too! Gotta’ do this one!
