diy cake stands

for the past few weeks i have been completely wrapped up into birthday planning for clémence's first big one! ahh! i cannot even believe it is only like one month away. we are going to have some appetizers and sweets so i needed some cake stands. instead of purchasing them from somewhere (because that can get expensive) like most of the details of this party, i am wanted to make them myself. so off thrifting we went! i found 5 different white plates and 5 coffee mugs (total of $11) and grabbed some adhesive we already had at the house and voila! it is that simple. i still have a few more to make, but here is the first batch.

using the adhesive, cover the bottom of the mug.

...like so.

with the plate upside-down, apply mug to the center
and press down, firmly.

holding the plate and the mug, flip over.

use something heavy to set on top and let stand for 48hours at least
just to make extra sure that they're dry!

that's all there is to it!
