DIY Cake Plate....From a Toothbrush Holder

May 14, 2014

Don't think for a moment that this post is about those gorgeous pink cupcakes with cute little flowers on them......cause it's not.

 Or how your kids can make a big mess with that frosting and it how stains ....but a little Shout seems to get it clean.

And it's not about this pretty plate with the beautiful trim and embossed design that....I picked up for $1.50.

Nope, it's none of those things. It's all about the pedestal that it sits on.

And would you believe long before it was holding cupcakes, it was holding....... toothbrushes!

Yup, the toothbrushes can't believe it either!

When's the last time you recycled something?

PS. To see another cake plate I made with a candle holder, click here.

Grateful for~
to see kids with pink frosting all over them!
