DIY ||pretty|| cake stand!

If you know me, you know that I love cake stands in all shapes and sizes! They are just so pretty! A while back, I did a tutorial on a 3 tiered cupcake stand right here and a mini cake stand right here. Today, I am sharing a tutorial on a larger cake stand that only cost $3 to make!

What you will need:
*a candle stick-99cent store
*a plate-99cent store
*an ashtray-99cent store
*some strong glue (I used E6000)

First, turn the ashtray upside down.

Put the glue around the smaller end of the candle stick. Then, attach it to the ashtray-making sure that it is in the center. The candlestick will essentially be upside down on the ashtray.

Lastly, place glue around the wider end of the candlestick which is facing up and attach it to the bottom of the plate-making sure it's in the center of the bottom of the plate!

Voila! That's it! Now, you can paint it or leave it the way it is. Just think, this pretty piece only cost $3 too!!
(Unless you count the cost of the glue as well).

Happy decorating!
