Cake Stand Reveal!

Here's a picture of my cake stand collection thus far. I have a few more candlesticks left, but I haven't found plates for them yet. I found this candlestick and it matched the green color on the plate perfectly so I left it as is and just glued the plate to the candlestick. Easy as 1.2.3. I used a glue called 9001. I bought it at Hobby Lobby and it can be used on various surfaces, including ceramic. It does take about 24 hours to dry so you have to be patient.


I liked the way this plate looked with the glass candlestick. I figured it'd probably be hard if I tried to paint the candlestick white since it might not match the plate exactly.

This candlestick used to be plain wood before I painted it turquoise. I like the way it turned out!

This is my fave! The candlestick looks more blue in the picture than it actually is in person. I like the way it looks better in person than I do in pictures. I'll probably make another trip to Pier 1 today and buy a couple more of these plates. They have them in different colors and I think they'd be fun with different color candlesticks.

  4. I've seen cake stands on everyone's blogs lately, but the yellow bird/blue candlestick one is my all-time favorite! I'm going to see if the Pier 1 by me has these plates, so I can make one from myself.

    I'm a new follower after seeing your post on 20 Below Thursday.
