DIY: Pastry Platters

Happy Thursday!

Now, I didn’t actually do this DIY, but I might have to.  Check out this awesome & thrifty DIY from Renee of Weddings and Cookies.

First off, Renee bought a bunch of candle sticks & plates from her local Goodwill.  She didn’t spend more than $6 on any item!

She then did the following steps to create this.

It can’t get more beautiful than that!

Here are the steps:

1. Wash & dry every piece.
2. To find the center of the plate – take a string and stretched it across the back. Fold it in half & marked it on the plate (a dry erase marker will wash right off). Repeat. Where all the marks intersect is the center of your plate.
3. Use E6000 glue, make sure you’re in a well-ventilated area & take breaks if you’re gluing a lot, & follow the directions on the glue container.
4. Let them dry (plate side down) for 24+ hrs.
5. Take the stand outside to spray paint.
6. Let dry for a couple hours.
Stunning. Get Inspired!

    I saw that on Design Sponge too! They’re brilliant! Alex is right, did you make some cake stands for Chris’ b-day last year? I think I have a pic on my iPhone.
