diy cake plates

Mother’s Day is just about here. Are you ready to dote on your mama? I am! I’ve also been working on some mother’s day gifts that are on the hush-hush since my mom might see them here (but I’ll share next week over on my diy page!). Another great idea for mom’s day is to make your own cake plate. They’re so pretty and, in my opinion, you can never have enough cake plates (those of you who know me can testify to my proclivity towards cake plates!).

To start, just head to your local thrift store and pick up a plate and a candle holder. I chose two different ones.


Next, since these will be strictly decorative in my home, simply glue gun the top of the candle holder to the bottom of the plate. Be sure that they’re centered on top of one another. Press down hard to make sure the glue spreads enough to hold it in place, and let it dry.

For the first cake plate, I used a beautiful robin egg blue spray paint. Since the second cake plate is clear glass, I chose to use my Looking Glass spray paint for that one (this is the same spray paint I used on my coffee table several months ago which you can see here).

The first cake plate needed a bit of primer first and once it was dry I hit it with the beautiful robin egg blue spray paint.

The second one just needed a consistent spray of the Looking Glass spray paint.

Once dry, I brought them both inside and found the perfect place for each. This would make a gorgeous gift for your mom this Mother’s Day. They’re simple to make and end up looking beautiful. Happy Mother’s Day!
