DIY: Cake Stand Dome

DIY Cake Stand Dome { Be What We Love blog }

I just got back from Arizona where I loved seeing all the beautiful cacti and succulents everywhere and especially the gorgeous and creative succulent terrariums my sister-in-law made in various containers. I was in a mission to drive to one of our favorite places, ReStore (a Habitat for Humanity home supply recycling store and donation site) to grab a light pendant to transform in a beautiful terrarium (I’ll write another post and tutorial about that next week). In the lighting area, I found a pile of these light fixture covers and I couldn’t resist grabbing a few to transform them in beautiful domes for my cake stand collection. Don’t these give the most wonderful vintage flair to cake stands?

You’ll need:
  • Light fixture covers – only $2 a piece at my local ReStore
  • Knobs from Anthropologie, World Market or Hardware store – cost between $3 to $6  each.
  • Fender Washer 1/4″ x 1-1/4″ – costs $0.12 at my local home improvement store.

Total cost : +/- $6 each dome

DIY Candy Dish

My obsession with dishes has already been well documented on this site. I grew up seeing my parents amazing collection, I’ve found some fun ways to use glass containers at my home parties, and I even have done a DIY on repurposing glass bottles.  So naturally, when I was at the Dollar Tree looking for a few party supplies and came across some great glass items I saw another DIY opportunity.  I couldn’t be happier with the results from this $2 project. I happened to already have a good glass specific glue. If you don’t have one on-hand already, you can pick one up while you’re there, for the low price of (you guessed it) $1, bringing the grand total to $3.
