DIY pretty cake stand

A couple of years back I made some handmade cake stands, for my Christmas table, they were perfect for my Mini gingerbread houses, as they were light, but they wouldn't of taken much weight. I wanted to make some more this year to match my new Christmas colour palette. So this time I went for smaller candle stick holders and bought MDF circles so they would be more secure and perfect for small cake cake stands. I haven't finished decorating all six of them, but I have finished one that I am sharing with you today.
Here's how...

1 Cake stand

How-to step by step

  • Draw a circle using a template

    Step 1

    Start by carefully spray painting the candle stick holder in white paint, leave to dry. Paint push pins in metallic paint & leave to dry. Next make a template for your candle stick holder, so that you can draw a circle in the centre of your MDF circles ready to glue the candle stick holder to. Draw a circle in centre of your MDF circle.

  • Hot glue gun candle stick to base

    Step 2

    Apply a thin layer of glue over your drawn circle. Place candle holder upside down and place over glued circle and press firmly down.
