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!
Materials needed for mini 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.
