DIY Mini Domed Cake Plate Cake Stand
DIY Mini Domed Cake Plate Cake Stand
I love thrifting. Especially when I find beautiful pieces like these wall plates and candle holder.
I could have just used them as they are, but what fun would that be?
So instead I decided to do some simple crafting with them a project that took about 5 minutes.
Well, 5 minutes to make but I did have to wait for the glue to completely dry overnight. E6000 glue is my choice of glue as always. 😀
I turned one plate into a cake stand by glueing the candle holder to the bottom of the plate it was the perfect candle holder to use as the base of the stand.
I did initially plan on turning the small plate into a cake stand, but I couldnt find a base that worked well with it. Instead I came up with the idea of just making a dome lid for it.
I love the way the domed cake plate turned out! For the dome lid, all I used was a glass bowl [from Walmart] and a drawer knob [from Hobby Lobby]. I think the two came together nicely and the perfect fit to go along with the plate!
I love my two new creations. Super simple to make and so elegant! Dont ya think?
Unfortunately Im not keeping this beautiful set, but rather gifting them. No worries, theyre a gift for a well deserved person!
you found my weakness……cake stands. Love them both
Love what you done with the smaller plate by using a glass bowl and adding just a knob. Very classy. How very clever and an idea for me to steal from you. : thank you
These came out so nicely. These cake stands remind me of my aunt. She has plates similar to this.
You are so talented. Whenever I read your blog, you give me new ideas that I never would have thought of. 🙂
Thanks Rana!! You are so sweet. Im so happy to hear that you are able to take ideas from me. 🙂
gorgeous! Ive been wanting to make one for ages! havent found the right combination of pieces yet. Thanks for inspiring!
Thanks Leila! I know what you mean about wanting to do a particular project but just not finding the right pieces to put it together… or the excuse for certain projects. 😛 Im happy that you found inspiration from my project
Swoon! How lucky that it all fit together just right. Beautiful!
Thanks Alana! I know… I knew I wanted a clear glass bowl but actually had a hard time finding one that would work until my last stop! Im a Target girl so it didnt immediately occur to me to go to Walmart (even though theyre right next to each other!)… so glad I made that stop! And for a buck, cant beat that! 🙂
Beautiful. A thrifted fine to something truly spectacular. So simple, so elegant. Love it.
