DIY Pedestal Cake Stand

I found new metal tart pan on clearance.

I attached it to a metal thrift store candlestick using E6000 glue.

I used steel wool to scrub the top giving it a brushed metal finish.

Add a glass cloche and it makes a beautiful centerpiece.

  I hope you enjoyed this project and you'll take a look at my Amazon Shop for craft supplies I recommend. Also while you're here please sign up for the Homeroad emails on my sidebar so I can send my latest DIY post straight to you.

  1. Soooo pretty! I could see it piled high with cupcakes and other goodies for Easter!


  2. FABULOUS!!! I love it and I'm gonna give this one a chance! Hope I can find a thick tart dish like yours, cause the ones I've seen are of thin tin. Thanks for sharing.

  3. so sweet! Love the stand even without the cloche!


  4. I think I have a similar set up. My trouble isn't making a cloche it's ever putting something under them! They all sit empty.


  5. WOW! What a CLEVER idea! I've only recently started taking notice of blogs about homemaking, and am absolutely LOVING cloches, which aren't so widely available here in the UK, or at least, not unless you can afford to pay an arm and a leg, lol, so any thrifty ideas of how to make different stands for them to sit on in order to give a different look, are VERY welcome. Many thanks for sharing.
