DIY Wedding Challenge 2010: Cake Stand


DIY Wedding Challenge 2010: Cake Stand

Unsatisfied with cake stands in stores, we thought it would be fun to build our own!

Materials (we found them all at Jo-Ann):

  • 2 16" styrofoam wreaths

  • 14" diameter plastic cake platter

  • 1 yard of satin

  • 10 silk flower buds

  • 2 yards of various lace trims (we used 2)

  • Hot glue gun

  • Pins

  1. We glued the 2 styrofoam wreaths together (stacked)

  2. Set the cake platter on top

  3. Draped the satin over and pinned the excess underneath the bottom of the wreath

  4. Wrapped the lace around the upper edge and decoratively placed the flowers:

When we were done, we used our cat, Skuz, to weight-test it!
