Super Simple Cake Plate

May 18, 2012

Remember back at Easter time  I mentioned to you here that my sister did not have a cake plate? Well, I decided to do what sisters do and make her one.

The process started at the local thrift store where I  picked up this white plate and candle stick.

It felt like pay day when I saw that the candle holder from Anthropologie, cost me $1.50 and the plate was marked down to 25.


I used some E6000 adhesive (found at your local hardware store), between the bottom of the plate and the top of the candle holder.

Make sure to level the holder onto the plate so it is even...sister does not want wonky cake plate. and let it set overnight to dry.


Next day....... sister has a cake plate!


How super simple is this.....and it looked amazing on her table.

Have a great weekend.
