{Just} A Cake Stand

IMG_0228
I love cake stands and I really only have one, which is weird….anyway, I have loved seeing all the amazing repurposing of things to make unique cake stands.  So, here is another one.  Nothing too crazy cool or spectacular,  but pretty cute for very little time or money. And now I have two cake stands!

I had 2 little votive holders that I bought from the dollar store a while back.  Because they are from the dollar store, they were sort of irregular, which in this case was wonderful!  One of the bottoms was smaller so it fit perfectly in the other, so I Gorilla glued them together and then placed my old {like first married old} metal charger plate on top.  Throw in a little ORB spray paint to unify the look,  and what do you get?…

I am not sure where she will end up, but I borrowed this little arrangement from my Etsy Shop to show you one way it could be used.
* My sincerest apologies about the dust in these pics that is driving me nuts!!  So please ignore. ;)
