Hi! This is Amy with Mod Podge Rocks. My blog features projects that use - you guessed it - Mod Podge. It's the world's greatest decoupage medium, and one of the easiest craft products to use. EVER. Today I'm going to show you how to make the cake/cookie stand above. My inspiration was the many holiday parties that are coming up as well as the desire to create something inexpensive to hostess with. I'm so excited to tell you that it only cost me 3 BUCKS to make. I had a lot of these items in my stash. If you don't have everything I list, you are welcome to change around the "ingredients." My project is just a suggestion, and I encourage you to get creative! Let's jump in. Here are the supplies that I used:
-Mod Podge Matte, 8 oz. (stash)
-FolkArt Enamel paint, Silver ($2)
-11" blue plate ($1 from the Dollar Store)
-Candleholder (old one I had laying around the house)
-One sheet of scrapbook paper wtih coordinating embellishments (stash)
-E-6000 adhesive (stash - but you can use anything that will glue ceramic/glass to adhere the plate to the stand)
-Clear rhinestones (stash, you can find these in the Michaels $1 bins!)
-Flat paint brush
-Circle cutter (you don't need this, I just happen to have one)
-Scalloped scissors (again, you don't need these - they are a nice to have)
To adhere the stand to the plate, apply E-6000 (or a similar adhesive) around the edge of your stand. Press down onto the plate and allow to dry for as long as your adhesive instructions tell you to.
You'll notice that on the finished version, I also applied some rhinestones around the base of the stand. Mine were self-adhesive so no glue was required! Yay - my project is finished, and I'm so happy with it. I can't wait to entertain!
