DIY Cake Plates

{Made By Me Monday}
While the boys are away... 
MOM will play make cake plates!My husband took my two boys camping for the weekend and I am in CAKE PLATE heaven! I've been collecting a few plates here and there, so this weekend was the perfect opportunity to get them all together.
____________________
I found these little glass candlesticks at the Dollar Tree!and this plate at Hobby Lobby for $3.00
GLUE them together and what do you get? A very cute cake plate!
EASY peasy!
and gorgeous!
 I found this white vase at the Goodwill for $1.50
 and this square yellow plate there the same day!
GLUE them together!
That's it!
I found this metal candlestick at Goodwill for $1.00. It's from partylite so it's pretty heavy!
This metal tray was 60 cents! 
They are a perfect match!
I found this damask plate at Hobby Lobby for $3.00. I haven't glued it to a candlestick yet, I'm still waiting for the right fit. Although, I don't think the glass one from the Dollar Tree is bad! :)
Only a few more to put together and I will have a collection!
It's SO addicting! :)

They are so fun! What glue did you use? I've been wanting to make some.

Your cake plates are too cool! Tell me, where do you source out you cloches or cake domes? I've been looking for some 4EVER! Thanks!

Okay, I've seen this idea all over and I think they're gorgeous but the ones without a plate on the bottom, don't they tip over really easy? I want to make one but I think they look really unstable, I don't want mine falling over easily.

Thanks for linking up to Make it MOnday! I've just shared your link on the Brassy Apple FB page and on twitter too!

So Cute. Love the damask. I use a glue gun just for the simple fact that after I use it, I can soak it in water and I can pull the plate and candlestick apart. This makes storing much easier.

I love them all :)
Good job.

Thanks so much for the sweet comments!! I used just E6000 glue. You can find it at any craft store. It's perfect for gluing glass together. The cake domes I actually found at Goodwill too! Both on different days, it's hit and miss.

Those look really cool. I will have to do something like that when I get a china cabinet to actually store them :)

Donna said...

Love these ideas!
I need a cute cake plate- and for the price of one plain glass one, I could buy 4 or 5 of your style!
Thanks for sharing!

Hi Marni, stopping by from Craft-O-Maniac link party. You do like cake plates! :) They're really nice, I like especially the damask one, I've already have a candlestick so I'll totally try this when I find a nice plate. Thanks for sharing.
Greetings from Spain
