Supplies Needed:

  • Vintage plate
  • Glass candlestick (or an old fashioned tulip shaped sundae dish, or a drinking glass, etc.)
  • Crystal drawer pull (this is optional)
  • Epoxy glue (slow drying if you are making more than one vintage cake stand)
  • Ruler
  • Sharpie
  • Popsicle stick
  • Q-tip
  • Something to mix your epoxy in (I used a recycled aluminum tray)

Step 1:
Find the half way point on the back of your plate and place a dot using a Sharpie or other marking device.

Step 5: (Optional)
If you are adding a drawer pull to the other side of the plate, place a dab of epoxy glue on the drawer pull. Turn plate over and adhere to middle of plate.

You can also make two tier cake stands using one small plate and one dinner plate. Just make sure the base is good and sturdy. The last thing you want is your goodies to topple over!
