DIY Cake Stands
If you were wondering why I suddenly jumped onto the DIY train, I am throwing a baby shower for my sister-in-law tomorrow. I got all over eager and thought that I am Martha Stewart and is making ALL the decorations myself. I worked like a crazy DIYer over the weekend and every night after work this week to get everything done.
As I was browsing through my kitchen cupboard looking for something to put the cupcakes on, I realized that all the cake stands that I own, is too girly and my sister-in-law is expecting a baby boy. The colour scheme are greys, blues and pastel colours, my pink cupcake stand will not look too good with bright blue cupcakes on.
So once again, I had to improvise. I grabbed a couple of plastic plates and glasses from the store for R24, some super glue and grey spray paint.
After letting them dry, I got Viv to glue them on top of each other. (I am no fan of super glue. I got scarred for life after gluing my fingers together as a child)
Note: Wear gloves when you spray paint and ideally do not do this project in your work clothes. It now looks like I haven’t washed my hands for 10 years and my work clothes are gonners.
