As I was looking through blogs, I saw a cute idea to make your own cake stand. So I headed to the dollar store and picked up these two items.
I didn't really care for the texture on the candlestick, so I spray painted it brown
I first started with the plate. I loved the color of the plate, but it wasn't too exciting. So I added some rub-ons onto the plate to give it a little more personality. To add the rub-ons, place them directly onto the plate and rub with a stick until the image is completely transfered. These were just normal rub-ons.
To adhere the candlestick to the plate use a silicone sealer or E6000
Now I guess I should start baking cakes :)
