What could be better than making your own unique cake stands ready for those Mother's Day treats?
This quick and easy craft is suitable for everyone. It is a great way to re-purpose old crockery, and the finished product would even make a fantastic gift! You will need:
- A selection of vintage plates and glasses
- Glue suitable for glass and ceramics
Choose which plates you want to work with - usually different sizes work best. Your cake stand should tier, from the largest plate at the bottom, to the smallest at the top.
Try stacking the plates and glasses to make sure they are fairly sturdy and that you are happy with the placement.
Begin to glue each piece together. Make sure you use a strong clear glue suitable for glass and ceramics. Weigh it down and leave overnight.
Voila! You now have your own unique selection of cake stands, all that is left to do is fill them with goodies!
