There are projects that I am so very excited about that I forgo important work so that I can make them. This mini domed cake stand is one of them. Like the diy ring dish tutorial I recently did for a Christmas gift, this domed cake stand is so quick and easy it’s downright shameful. So, I thought it would be just fabulous to share the simple steps with you so you can make one of your own! There are many wonderful tutorials for creating your own cake stands (we actually have another one for a shell cake stand). But, this domed version is a special twist. Of course, the mini size of this stand (don’t worry, you can do a full version!) adds to the adorableness. A mini domed cake stand would be a gift that most anyone would be pleased to receive! Honestly though, I’m keeping this one. I love it!
Materials: needed for domed cake stand:
- small plate
- small cup, egg cup, sundae dish, or candlestick
- large bead or knob
- E6000 or similarly strong clear, waterproof glue
This is when you splurge on that beautiful bowl and plate set you saw, or the gorgeous hand painted bead you love. I went to Pier 1 for my set and had a hard time choosing WHICH set to get. You could try your local thrift store and see what you can find. I had my heart set on this little set since I decided to make this project. A drawer knob will work for the top if you can remove the screw and it will still look nice. Otherwise, a large bead works well.
