Today on {be inspired} we are featuring a DIY project that is a MUST for your Wedding day, a cake/dessert stand!  Cake stands can become costly, but today we are going to show you how to DIY {do it yourself} and help that budget!
These are not only cost efficient but easy to do! If you are planning on having a dessert table at your wedding get creative, use different colors, textures of paint, shapes, and sizes of flower pots/trays! Think outside of the box, stack multiple stands and connect them on top of each other, making a cupcake or cookie stand! Not only are these cake stands multi-purpose but they are a great way to show off your style too!

Okay the supplies you need can be found at Home Depot, Lowes, or Michaels (can be more pricey here BUT – if you have a smart phone download the Michaels app and get 40% off one item coupons that are scanable right from your phone!)

Here are all of the {ingredients} Flower pot, Flower pot tray, Sand paper, Hot glue, Newspaper, & Spray Paint … Acrylic paint can always be painted on using a brush!Take the Flower Pot and get ready to paint! I thought scuffing it up with sand paper would help it look a little more rustic {optional}

 

Paint the Flower Pot which ever color you like, we choose {satin}Also paint the Tray, front and back! Some of the price tag didn't peel off but its okay because that is where you attach the flower pot!Place the tray & flower pot upside down, gluing the bottom of the pot, make sure you center it!

We added some pearls to give it some character. Add beads, fabric, or paint the trim to match your style!

TA-DA! Now you have your very own DIY cake stand!

We hope you enjoyed this DIY project and try it for your own wedding or bridal shower!
Hope you have an {inspired} day!
Love,
Danielle & Cecily
