Hi all! It’s Erica from For the Love of Decorating here. I’m back again with this month’s contributor post. Thanks again Melissa for having me
Today, I’ll be showing you some SUPER easy, SUPER cheap, DIY cakestands. They are the perfect addition to any dessert table. The best part? You can find what you need to make them at any thrift store across the country!
You will need :
- glass dessert plate
- glass candlestick
- clear silicone adhesive
I started with a glass plate. You know the kind…they have some sort of sunburst pattern and small feet on the bottoms. They are always in abundance at your local thrift store and in this case, my local Goodwill. They had at least 6 in stock when I was there so I bought 2 @ $1.99 each. You will also need a candlestick holder for each plate. They can be short, tall, skinny, fat…whatever! Get a variety and you can achieve varying heights which is always desirable for the aesthetics of a good dessert table. I bought 2 also @ $1.99. If you’re good at math, that means these cake stands will only cost you about $3.98 a piece! The silicone adhesive I already had on hand and it can be found at any local hardware store.
I spread the glue on the top ring of the candlestick…
Then, I placed the plate on top, making sure it was centered.
Let it dry and that’s it folks!
You can stack them…
Or layer them in your display…
Just make sure they are holding a tasty treat…
