DIY Cake Plates by Merry Brides

DIY Vintage Plate Treat Stands

Here’s what you need:

* glass candlestick
* crystal drawer pull (this is optional)
* epoxy glue (slow drying if you are making more than one vintage cake stand)
NOTE: Someone suggested 6000E Glue works just as well as Epoxy
* ruler
* Sharpie
* Popsicle stick
* Q-tip
* something to mix your epoxy in (I used a recycled aluminum tray)
