HELLO fellow pinteresters! I am amazed at how many hits this one page gets every day! I'm so glad that my little project could inspire or at least intrigue so many! Just wanted to let you know that I have now created an ETSY of my other creations. Feel free to stop by and take a look! Again, thank you for stopping by, I LOVE DIY! Maybe I should post more projects :)
I was at Walmart today and found these candle stands. I immediately thought "ooooh, cake plate!"
So I bought
ended up finding 4 plates! They were just so pretty and lovely and sooooo Ashley.
Next stop. Michael's to find that super duper strong glue. I found the tube, whipped out my phone with the Michael's app coupon pulled up and got it for a discount (around $2). Score.
Deciding which plate to go on which candle stand took 5 minutes because of the varying heights of the candle holders. The whole which plate looks best with which height dilemma. Typical right?
Next, get the glue ready.
Clean off plates and candle holders. Turn plates upside down. Apply thin strip of glue along the edges of the candle holder and press into the center of the plate. I went along the edges in various spots where the candle and plate met to give it extra support. Let sit for 24-72 hours before using.
|Daring, are we?|
Whole project was under $30. And we all know cake plates can go for almost $15-20 per, especially if they are big ones like the two big plated ones I have. Each of my cake plates would come to about $7 each. I just love mine! And the colors go perfectly with my color scheme in my humble abode :) Now, I know that if I ever want a cake plate... I will ALWAYS remember I could make one for a fraction of the price. Hmmm.. blessing or curse? haha
