Hi everyone! The bulbs I've been forcing since December have finally bloomed. Aren't they pretty!
I have a very simple project to share today. I'm sure most of you have seen where you put a plate on top of an candle holder and use it as a cake stand. This is basically the same thing with a tiny twist.
Step 1 - I found a candlestick and something that I would use as a base at the thrift store.
Step 2 - I flipped the disk around and spray painted both items in black since the plate I'm going to use has black in it.
Step 3 - I attached the two pieces. I used hot glue cause the only other glue I had was Elmers. This looks pretty good to me too. It makes the candlestick chunkier.
Step 4 - I painted some stripes on the base.
I didn't attach the plate to the stand because I'm not sure I want to keep it forever.
Ta-Da! It's sort of a Mackenzie-Childs inspired cake stand. I got the plate a while ago at TJ Maxx. I think it was in December so I'm not sure they have them anymore.
Be sure to let me know if you try this as I'd love to see it!
