Posted on by ashley      3 Comments

Thank you to our “What a Find” entrant!

Heidi’s clever Shabby Chic cake stand:

1. Find complimentary colored plates with pleasing sizes.

2. Select three glass items to make tiers.
{Hint: Could be candle holders, ice cream dish, etc.}

3. Use glass glue to connect the plates to the tiers. Make sure that they are centered before you glue.

4. Proudly display or give your beautiful gift.

So pretty – keep creating!

  1. What is “glass glue”? I made a cake stand for my wedding using a clear candle dish and an upside-down parfait cup, using clear silicone adhesive to glue it together. While it stuck ok, the glue on the inside of the cup bottom (where the stand connected to the dish) never dried, even after three weeks. It was still white on my wedding day!

    • If you google glass glue you will find a variety of options. Krazy Glue even has one. Our customer wrote this segment, so I do not know the exact product she used. I hope you try your project again. Let us know if it works out. Happy Thanksgiving! Ashley
