Im planning a bday party for my daughter and needed a cake stand. I saw this idea online and was thrilled to try it. It is probably the easiest, fastest, cheapest craft I have ever done! I went to the thrift store to get supplies. Of course I ended up with enough to make 4 stands instead of the 1 I originally planned on lol but for only about $5-6! There was just too much to choose from. Then I went to the craft store for some epoxy for glass, I used a 50% off coupon so that cost me $2. Then just glued the pieces together! Thats it!! Now I just hope I can learn to bake by the end of the month haha.


all the finished stands


small stand

the top of it


I think this is my fave


the top piece on this one is actually plastic shhhh. I have to test this one out though and make sure its stable since the base is so tall and the plate is long.



cupcake stand


the lid can fit on this one too

These are such a great idea Smiley I've seen it floating around the blogosphere.

If you like bright colours, or have a theme for the party, you can spray paint them too, that looks really effective.

I really need to head to the op shop to get some stuff for myself Smiley

Such a simple idea, but what a dramatic effect! Very chic! I will be trolling the thrift shops (yet again) in search of materials for this project. I love them just the way they are too- they work for any occasion! I adore the cupcake stand! Thanks for the idea!

love your stands!
I had a go at this a few weeks ago, and used a vase filled with shells for the middle.
It's not everyones cup of tea, but I use it as a fruit bowl/stand.

thanks! I was thinking of putting something in 2 of the stands i got cause the bases are really vases I think, but really I was just too impatient to wait til I got something to put in there haha. I think itd be pretty to fill it with something though, colored sand would probably work good too. May try it out if I do anymore.
