It’s DIY day at Kimba’s! So much creativity over there…check it out (when you’re done here, of course!).
Okay, wow. I didn’t realize I had that much. I have collected plates, cheese domes, and candle sticks for making mini cake plates. I grab the jars when I see them cheap for filling with decorative items. But what if I mixed it up a bit?
How about small round jars on the candlesticks?
How about matching jars at different heights for DIY apothecary jars? Ooohh, I really like this one! (My countertop doesn’t make the best backdrop, but it’s almost midnight and I’m not going to do it over now. Sorry.)
Today, though, I’m going to make a cake plate. For these projects, the best candlesticks have a decent flat surface area at the top edge so the glue has good contact. Also, it’s good to have a pretty wide base, especially for the tall ones.
A couple of months ago, I found this scallop-edged plate. I’m trying something new this time and using a dry-erase marker to mark the center of the plate (it will wipe right off).
Apply E-6000 glue to the top edge of your chosen candlestick and center the plate on top. I didn’t get a good picture of that—sorry again.
Allow it to dry, and set your cheese dome on top. How cute is that?!
For Skippy’s birthday I had several of these in varying heights with two or three cupcakes each, grouped as a center piece on the table. I didn’t get a photo of that either, but it was so stinkin’ cute!
They can also be used to display seasonal arrangements, decor, or other little treasures. It’s inexpensive (I usually pay between $.50-$2 per component), and so very easy. Give it a try!
