DIY Pedestal Plate Stand

For a long time I have seen so many cute DIY pedestal cake stands and I thought I would create my own version since I have so many random small glass containers left over from our wedding decorations.  I chose not to call my cake stands since I do not plan to use them to hold cakes or desserts.  Mine are just for decoration.

It was fun experimenting with all the different kinds of containers I had on hand.

Don't mind the plates, these are temporary visual aids until I find that perfect little plate during my next thrift store run.

I also found fun little decorations to add in the bases.  I glued the bases on with epoxy.

I added one of my grandmother's handmade doilies that my mom had recently given to me.  I like how this one turned out.

Hope you're having a great fall weekend~

Linking to these amazingly creative PARTIES!

It certainly is a fabulous way to make a pretty pedestal plate to showcase a dessert, vignette, etc! I loved how yours turned out...gorgeous! Thank you so much for sharing this sweet post with us today for the Sunday Favorites party!!! If you wouldn't mind...I would love for you to add my Sunday Favorites party link to your list!
