Tutorial Tuesday: Cake Stands

So, I've been wanting a cake stand for a while now, but I didn't feel like spending at least $30 or more. Found this great, super easy tutorial HERE. Try it out and let me know how it goes!

I went to the local thrift store and bought some sundae cups and glass plates.. less than $1 each.I used clear caulk (it looks like a white paste then dries clear) I used way too much here... about half this amount is good and not too thick.Wipe any excess caulk off with a wet q-tip.

Then let it dry for a few days (It took mine a good 2 days to dry)

Then once it dries.. you're all done!!

Then... I was at the dollar store last night and saw these... you can really make a cake stand with anything!

Here are some extra tips
  • Sand the areas you'll be gluing so it will hold better.
  • Use the E-6000 glue found at Walmart. I heard it's the best.
  • Let it sit for a couple days just to be extra safe:)
Have fun!
