Cupcake StandDecember 14th, 2010 in member junk
I had been wanting to buy a double cupcake stand for the past few months. But they are always so expensive...and well this girl just can't justify spending more than $5 for any type of dish. So I went to my local thrift shop and came home with some milk glass type vase, and bowl, along with a white plate. I also found an tin tray, for .10, you can't beat that! I took them all home, dug out my Gorilla Glue and a can of High Gloss White Paint that I had on hand.
After I painted 2 coats on the tin tray, I attached it and the plate to the vase. I then turned the bowl upside down and attached it to the bottom of the tray. I was so excited with what I came up with, I used it for my Cousins Baby Shower.
I just had to throw in the pic of my silly Unk Craig doing his silly little jig at the Baby Shower! He is the one I made the Ye Antique Gun Nut Plaque for!
My Cousin liked it so much she begged me to make her one of her own. So I went back to the same thrift store and bought a clear plate, a really cool clear light fixture, a clear candle holder, and a clear microwave platter...and crazy glued them all together! She was THRILLED! I'll post a pic of hers the next time I think to take one!
