How to make a mini domed cake stand.

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 of course, I have to share the simple steps with you so you can make one of your own!  This will quickly become your go-to gift.

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!

Oh my goodness! What a lovely gift to give! This handmade domed cake stand is so quick and easy to make...anyone can do it! make cake stand

  domed cake stand materials

Materials needed for mini domed cake stand:

  • bowl
  • 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.

    Grammar and spelling are never optional if you want people to read what you’ve written. Converational, informal writing is fine in a blog. Seriously, there is a large segment of DIYers who know grammar. Don’t alienate them, and grow your audience.

    This is a pretty plate and bowl. I know cake stands from Dollar Tree are all over Pinterest, but they don’t have the dome which is why I didn’t bother. This changes things.

      oh yes, we agree. The comment about grammar was in response to one of the comments from our readers making a mistake in it’s versus its. We were just letting her know we didn’t hold it against her. It wasn’t a general comment directed as a whole. And, I do agree about grammar. And, I am not the best in the grammar and spelling department. I try, but it is difficult for me. That is why I brought on Lanet who is has English in her resume background. She has a big job helping keep the conversational tone and still have good grammar. Poor girl! Have a great weekend!

      Hey Ladies! Yes, grammar is great. A friend & I were just discussing how much punctuation can make a difference as we planned a label for our Homemade Balm Bomb (heals & protects for everywhere- but sex v.s. Heals, protects from everything but sex). We had a good laugh at that! Aaaanyway, as for your blog….I don’t care if you text it in abbreviations…it’s sooo gooood I would figure it out!! Just look at all that fantastic eye candy (aka pictures). Anyone who might criticize your spelling or grammar when you’re great enough to share all your SuperFantasticDyNoMite ideas with us doesn’t deserve to get to see them! We’re not here for the English lesson; Thank You very much!

    Love the mini dome dish. I think I will try it as gifts. Maybe even the Christmas bazaar. I also purchased
    D this summer a bird feeder that was made from glass bowls and glass drinking glasses. It is beautiful. The lady was also selling tea cups as bird feeders. Amazing ideas.
