I’m so happy you stopped by today, cause I’ve got something so so simple but lovely for you! And I’m convinced that this must be the easiest & cheapest DIY cake stand ever that I’m about to show you! Seriously!
There are tons and tons of cake stand DIY’s out there and I love them all. So it has been on my “want-to-do-list” for a long while now and the week I had off, I got a lot on that long list marked off! Such a big relief! Most of the chores on it were “have-to-do’s” and not so much fun like this one, but I feel really happy, that I was able to get a lot off my mind. Why do I let that list get so long in the first place! No idea.
The easiest & cheapest DIY cake stand ever
What I’ve used:
~ small terracotta pot
~ wooden plate
~ hot glue gun
When I say easiest, I mean it! Like a little bit of painting and half a minute of hot glue gun gluing isn’t the easiest! See?
And when I say cheapest, I mean cheapest cheapest! The little terracotta pot cost me 0.40 Euro Cents. I find these at a local garden center and they sell them in all sizes. I’m pretty sure you’ll find them at your local Dollar store and even for a dollar it’s still pretty cheap!
The wooden plate is from our local Euro store and costs 1.50 Euros! They sell them in all sizes, I usually buy the small ones and use them for coasters, you can read more about that here.
I used chalky finish paint which I had at home already, you could also just use acrylic paint.
This little terracotta pot is from last summer and I decided to re-use it for this cake stand. It was painted light blue and now I decided to give it some brushes of white chalky finish paint, but still let the blue shine through.
The wooden plate got two coats of chalky finish paint and I did not distress this time. I decided to leave it all white. Don’t you think the distressed pot as the base looks great paired with the plain white top?
If you like to save it for later, pin it!!!
So, I hope you like my super easy and super cheap little cake stand!!! Have a great rest of the week!!!
