Cake Stand…

For enrichment, we  had a craft night (finally something to get me crafting again!)  I singed up for all but one of the things, and finished two so far.  Be sure to check post below for the second project.  Now, this is a fun one!  I can’t wait to make many more of these different ways for different things.   I included some links below of other fun things you can do with it.  I love the idea of using it for a  jewelry stand.

Start with a plate and stand (cup, candle holder, vase, tea cup etc.)  A great place to find fun dishes is the Goodwill/D.I.  I unfortunately didn’t have much luck the day I went, but Homegoods saved the day!  Thanks to friends who helped me find this adorable plate and Sundae dish. 
1. Be sure to have clean your plate and “stand” well before starting.  
2005 I turned the cup upside down and glued the bottom of the cup to the plate.
2008 2. Measure the diameter of the plate and the part of the stand that is being glued to the plate.  This will help you find the center. (Truthfully, this part went over my head.  You can just eyeball it if that’s easier).
3. Use Gorilla Glue to glue the stand to the plate.  Just follow the directions on the back of the glue.  Be sure to put something on top of the stand to keep the glue of expanding.
And there you have it!  This is going to be the girl’s birthday plate!  Addison’s 1st birthday is just around the corner (less than 2 months away!!),r:20,s:0&biw=1600&bih=707

  1. Love it! I'm seeing these all over the place and even bought one that my sister in law fell in love with for her for Christmas. The whole time I was thinking, I could make this for so much cheaper!!!!
