Tutorial: DIY Cake Stand

decorThe Style CocktailComment

Hello Loves,

How are you? If you are in the New England region I hope you are bearing the hot temperatures okay. I knew I wanted to add some blue and white accents to my dining room. When I stumbled upon these adorable plates for $3.99 a piece at The Christmas Tree shop of all places, I knew I had to snatch them up. At first I wasn't sure if I was going to hang them on the wall, but then I found glass candle holders at the craft store and my lightbulb went on.

 

It's a 5 minute project. All you need is the plates of your choice, three candle holders, (I couldn't find 3 the same so I mix-matched them), and I used a small clear candle votive for the top. I used glass adhesive and found out the hard way that it's very important to let it set, (yes, my impatience gets the best of me every time).

First Step glue base to first plate of your selection.

Step two: glue second base to top of first plate and glue second plate to base. Repeat. Add a small clear votive to top, (I glued mine upside down).

I placed an electric candle on top and am letting it set. How cute would it be with grapes, delicate cookies, or cheese and olives for company to pick at? This cake plate would work just as well with wooden candle sticks, just make sure to use the right adhesive. You can buy inexpensive wooden candle holders and spray paint them the color of your choice. Five minutes of time and a $15 cake stand? I'd say it's a must-do!

Have you completed a DIY project lately?
