I’m sure everyone has seen this done 100 times, but I finally did it myself; I made a cake stand. Actually I made two. I was at the $1 store and I saw a candle holder and thought “this is the time.” Okay it wasn’t really that exciting, but when I saw the colorful plates I did think that something needed to be done with them.
Here’s what I needed:
This was a super simple craft; but not too bad to execute.
- First I painted the ugly weird colored one (it was like a combo between green and black? really odd.) Anyway, I just painted it with craft paint as it was late instead of using my handy dandy spray paint.
- Lightly clean the bottom of the plates and the tops of the candle holders with a moist towel and then dry them off. Apply a light ring of glue around the top of the candle holder and plate the plate on top. I then used books to hold it on there. Let it set for around an hour to make sure it seals correctly.
I know I should technically have “styled” these for this picture…. but honestly that’s not my strongest point. 🙂 You get the jist of how fun and super easy they are!
Have a wonderful weekend and look forward to the next couple posts where I’ll show you some pictures from a fun country chic shower I hosted last weekend, a new recipe, and a pillow that I sewed that’s amazing! (not to pat myself on the back too hard.)
