Do-It-Yourself projects are not my thing. I like the idea of being crafty, but let’s face it, I don’t do crafty well. For me to attempt and complete a project it has to be super easy, just a few pieces involved, and cheap to make.
Creating a cake stand from a plate and candlestick fits the bill. Of course, all you DIY divas are thinking ‘that’s so last year’. You’re probably right, this project can be found on any number of blogs and websites. Just in case, there is anyone left who has not seen this, it is truly a project worth trying.
Three components: a pretty plate, candlestick or glass to use as a base, Gorilla glue.
My plate was $3 at Goodwill.
The pretty candlestick stand was $2.42 at Goodwill.
Look, it’s a Gail Pittman too!
Glue it all together for a pretty fall dessert stand. Don’t let the glue’s brown color cause concern, it dries clear. Now that I have this project under my belt, I plan to make a few for Christmas gifts. (Pretend you did not hear that if we’re related.)
