It’s Friday! If you are like me….my days are all messed up with the 4th of July falling on a Wednesday…
Hit a wondrous estate sale, however and picked up an old English toile plate and a candle holder….the perfect makings for today’s how-2.
Your supply list:
1. an old ceramic plate of your choice
2. a flat topped candle holder
3. spray paint of your color choice
4. glue gun
5. Gorilla glue or some other permanent glue
first: sand your candle holder
you don’t have to do a thorough job…just enough to rough it up a bit so the paint will stick.
second: spray your candle holder
spray evenly to avoid dripping and let dry completely.
third: prepare plate
while paint is drying you can:
measure the bottom portion of your plate to obtain the center.
fourth: affix candle holder to plate
using your center marking, trace around your candle holder (top). (don’t you love my daughter’s festive manicure?)
following the directions for your permanent glue, apply a thin layer to your traced circle (plate) and the top of your candle holder.
attach candle holder to plate.
apply a layer of hot glue around where the candle holder and plate meet. this will insure a solid hold and make the plate more stable on top of the candle holder. let dry completely and turn over your now….awesome cake stand.
and there you go!!
have a great weekend….and eat some cake!
