{creative time} diy cake stands

a few days ago i got a little break in between working on orders, running errands, etc. to make something i had been wanting to make for awhile!

like what you ask?  well, diy'd cake stands similar to this photo inspiration i found on apartment therapy

i finally found these super cute plates at cost plus {in our blue color scheme} and for about $1.50 a pop! and i used some glass candlesticks  to create the pedestals. here are some photos of how they turned out!

i bought both a dinner plate and salad plate so that i could stack them like so...

i love that the two plates don't have the same pattern, but still compliment one another

if you're interested in creating something similar, i found the easy tutorial on design sponge, and seriously people i takes maybe five minuets to stick the candle sticks to the dishes, and the rest is just drying/ set up time for the epoxy... really really easy crafting idea!

i just wonder if i should test out a few of these in my shop? =)


  1. Hey it is really fantastic arrangement. The cake used to put onto it must be very big and looks so much attractive tray plate for big party cake. Thanks a lot for sharing.
