DIY Cake Stand

Wish I could take credit for this FABULOUS idea that I found on Pinterest, which led my back to this cute lil tutorial over at The Happy Housewife.

Lucky for me my mom had dropped off all sorts of odds and ends for a garage sale I had last summer and I tucked some of the mismatched candlesticks away for future use. I had no idea what I was going to use them for until I came across this genius idea and just in time for Landon's birthday too!              


I wanted a tiered look so I chose two candlesticks of different height and spray painted them.  I found the plates at Target, which ended up being super convenient because their logo is already centered on the bottom of the plate.  You know exactly where to glue :)



And here ya go! Easy peasy cake stands!!
