Cake stands are my favorite. I find an excuse to need one for every dessert, every holiday, in every shape, size and color. I wish my collection was larger, but for now I can make cheap ones in all the colors of the rainbow if I’d like!
The Dollar Tree has great plates and candlesticks.
I sprayed the back of the plate and the entire candlestick gold.
I do not spray the front of the plate because I like the little design showing through and then I don’t have to worry about putting food on top.
I covered the plate in glitter and because I had just sprayed paint, most of the glitter stuck right to it.
For some areas that the glitter didn’t stick to, I put some modge podge on and more glitter on top of it.
I have used hot glue before to put together the plate and candlestick and it works ok, but not great. It probably wouldn’t hold up for more than a few uses.
I found white silicone sealant at Target and wanted to try it. I put a generous amount on the candlestick, used a really heavy book to weigh it down and left it for about an hour.
It has held up really well so far.
I cut out some shamrocks with my Silhouette and started getting our kids all excited for St Patrick’s Day!
If you do not have a Silhouette or Cricut, this is a 4 leaf clover that can just be printed out and hand cut real quick.
I glitter it all! The more sparkle the better!
Until I save my pennies for more cake stands, this $2 cake stands look good to me! For a 5 minute quick Shamrock Banner, check out this post.
