Today, I’m sharing these quick and easy DIY Cake Stands. I snagged some outdoor dinnerware at Target last week, and I was admiring the cups when it occurred to me that they would make a great foot for a cake stand. So I flipped them over, popped a plate on top and made the easiest and most inexpensive cake stand ever.
Plastic or acrylic plate
E-6000 Craft Adhesive
Acrylic craft paint – optional
Step One: Find a coordinating plastic/acrylic plate and glass. Both of these are from Target.
Step Two: This is optional, but I wanted the aqua cup to coordinate a bit better with the plate. So I painted the inside of the aqua cup with two coats of white craft paint.
Step Three: Use E-6000 craft adhesive, available at Michael’s, to secure plate to bottom of cup. Follow directions for use and work in well ventilated area.
Step Four: Enjoy your new cake stand!
I love this idea for the upcoming holidays. I see a bunch of Halloween and Christmas cake stands in my future. I especially like the lip on the aqua set, it would work perfectly for jewelry or even cute soaps.
