Make it Monday: DIY Cake Stands

Monday, January 30, 2012

I have the cutest (& easiest!) DIY to show you today. On one of my many days off I was out looking for hidden treasures at the thrift store & saw the cutest little plate & knew instantly that I wanted to make a cake stand with it.
Instructions:
1. Apply a quarter size amount of epoxy to the bottom of your plate.
2. Place a candlestick holder, top side down on the epoxy.
3. Let dry overnight!
And you're done! I told you it was super easy!

Plate: $1.99
Candle Stick Holder: $1.99
Epoxy: $5.99 (there's enough epoxy to make like 10 more of these babies!)

  1. What a great and interesting idea. I have a couple of "inherited" plates which are all mismatched. This is the perfect solution to "recycle" them. Thanks for the great read.
