DIY Cake Stands -- Part 1

I'd like to preface this post with the fact that this should not be a two part-er...however, it was so cold last night and I was so tired that I couldn't finish this project.  And since I had teased about it yesterday, I didn't want to leave anyone in suspense as I'm trying to get better with my commitment to blogging again so here we go! 

After I finished making about five more tissue balls last night, hung them, decorated my ceilings, and made dinner for my family, I ran out to the garage to work on these DIY Cake Stands.  I got the tutorial from Kate at Centsational Girl which you may have seen on my post last week of all the DIY's I want to accomplish this year. 

It's super easy.  All you need is:

*Cute Glasses & Old Plates -- I got mine at Goodwill for under $5 for all
*Frosting Spray Paint
*Colored Spray Paint
*Household Silicone Sealant

Here are my soon to be beauties...

I apologize for the beautiful background here... our garage is a HOT MESS --- Like hotter than hot and there was not much room to work on our work table because the roof shingles for the dollhouse were still drying... nothing like waiting until the last minute!  Procrastination Station! 

So first start out by flipping your plates over... and your setting your glasses, centered on top of them.
It should look similar to this.

Then it's time to frost. 
I didn't take a picture of this because you could barely tell the difference, but this is what helps the paint stick!

Let that dry -- Takes about 10 min or so...
I gave mine longer so I could work on a few things inside while they were drying.

 Then it's time to paint them.  I picked out shabby pink and shabby green to work into the party's theme of Shabby Chic Tea at the Dollhouse!  I think it's coming out better now!  haha...

And you should get something like these...

Can I say how in love I am with them already and they aren't even finished?

So tonight I will be finishing them up and posting here tomorrow! 



*TODAY is the last day to shop for my Go Red Fundraiser -- I'm still wearing my Red Leather Wrap. Hoping to send a check of at least $50... :) So get your shop on!

*TODAY is also the last day to enter the giveaway for the Izzy Little Girls Set or at $25 Stella & Dot gift card -- super easy ways to enter! Don't forget! So far only 1 person is entered -- It's looking good for them!

*I challenged my husband to host a Stella & Dot show -- THE MAN SHOW -- and to get 5 orders by TODAY as well -- are you sensing a theme here? But in return he will get to go to his SUPER HUGE, SUPER EXPENSIVE coaching clinic in June! Wish him luck or help him out here.
