Decoupaged Cake Stand

 Like a lot of us I have a love for collecting. One of my favorite things to collect are cake stands. Whenever I see one that I like, usually in a thrift store I snap it up. I've been wanting to diy one for a while and since I haven't found one lately that I really liked while thrifting I decided to go ahead and make one.





I bought a square plate for 2.00 at Walmart, then I printed two images that I purchased from an Etsy shop.I cut out parts of both images and  glued them on the back of the plate.


.  After the images dried I painted the back of the plate with two coats of white paint and when the paint was dry I brushed on three coats of poly. After the poly dried I glued a  candle holder in the center with a resin type glue.


It's got a few boo boos, but I love the images and I think they made a pretty cute cake stand.


It was fun to do, I think I'll make a couple more.  I'll be joining these great parties this week,

  1. Turned out so nice, Karen. I love cake plates too. I never come across any while thrifting though. I found a few inexpensive ones at Home Goods. I love yours and I could see myself making a few and giving them away as gifts. Thanks for sharing and I hope you had a nice weekend.

  11. Clever girl you. I still remember the first time I saw John Derians work in Country Living I believe? It was so brilliant. When I went to the NY gift show for the first time I ran into his booth. It was a mad house. One designer friend told me that it fits in every kind of decor whether modern or vintage. It's timeless.

  27. Love the cake stand--I made a couple last week using D-6000 glue--it has a weird odor and ran in some spots (live and learn) --disappointing to say the least. What type of glue did you use to attach the base to the plate?

  44. Karen, thanks for taking the time to stop over at Quirky Vistas and leave me such a nice comment. You sure do have a lot of great ideas here. I believe I pinned one of your ideas from a couple posts down a while back. Just love how you take such ordinary things and give them dazzling new personalities!

  45. I absolutely love this!! It turned out so amazing. I think the square is somehow more interesting that the usual round cake stands. I just love decoupage.
