DIY Cake Stand

I've wanted a white "porcelain" cake stand for some time now, but I really didn't want to pay $50 dollars for it. So I turned thrift store finds into a one-of-a-kind cake stand for under $5. 



If you want to try this yourself you'll need a few supplies:
Spray paint (I used white gloss)
Frosted-glass spray paint *optional if you want it textured
Epoxy
A base: glass, vase, or candle holder
Plate


1) Wash and dry thrift store finds.
2) Coat base with frosted-glass spray paint and let dry.
3) Spray the base with a few light coats of spray paint, letting dry between coats.
4) Once the base is dry, epoxy it to the bottom of the plate and let cure according to package directions. 
5) Pile on the treats and show off your new cake stand!
*Leave the plate as is or paint only the bottom to keep it food safe.

    1. Hi Rachel! I’m so happy that I upgraded from the plain plate to a cake stand, it has made frosting a lot easier. Thank you for hosting every week :)
