DIY Cake Stand

First of All,
I can’t believe ALL of the sweet comments & questions I have received 
regarding The Superman Party.
So {Thank You}
But one of the most common questions I received was about the Cake Plate.
Where Did I get it? You Ask?
Well, I made it.
And it was EASY PEASY!
Let Me Show You How.
First of all,
When I initially started planning the party I knew I wanted a Shiny Cherry Red Cake Plate.
And None of what I had fit the bill.
So I started Digging around in my “Stash”
(stash= pile of random items waiting to be used for something magnificent)
And came across these 2 pieces that I picked up once upon a time.
Using some Wood Glue,
I glued the {2} pieces together with the “bowl” turned upside down.
Let it dry for 24 hours.
And gave it a good couple of coats of My Favorite Red Spray Paint
Have I mentioned how much I {Adore} the color Red?
Well I do.
And Now I have a Unique Cherry Red Cake Plate that I KNOW will be used more than once.
Here is where I am linking up this week!

  33. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this
    site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that
    “perfect balance” between usability and visual appearance.
    I must say you have done a very good job with this. In addition, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Firefox.
    Outstanding Blog!
