My DIY Pedestals
Friday, February 12, 2021
Can you guess that my cake pedestals are dollar store creations???
I might be a bit obsessed with all things cake pedestal right now. Sooo, I have noticed around that you can make your own. When I saw this at https://www.lizmarieblog.com/2021/02/diy-affordable-glass-pedestals/ I couldn’t help but try my own DIY pedestals. Her pedestals turned out so beautifully. Liz Marie gave several options to create DIY pedestals using a glass cup for the base. When I went in to the dollar store, the glass cups available were covered with words and wouldn’t look good turned upside down.
So my options were small bowls(cereal bowls). I flipped the bowls over. I purchased a glass plate for the top portion. Size does not matter and the more unique the better. You could get quite creative and play with the shape of your pedestal. I purchased my plates and bowls from the dollar store. Affordable and the easiest option! The thrift store would also be another great place to shop.
What You Need:
*E 6000 Glue
Step 1: I cleaned all the stickers from the bowls and plates. I prepped the dishes by washing and drying them. I turned the bowl over to create the base for my plate.
Step 2: Using the E 6000 glue I placed a bead of glue on the base of the bowl and placed my plate on top. I basically “eye-balled” the center of the plate to the base of the bowl.
Step 3: Tip – I placed a heavy object in the bowl to help secure the bowl and plate. I waited 24 hours for the glue to become dry.
Step 4: After the glue is dry, turn your plate upright and you have a custom pedestal to use as cake stand, to display desserts, fruit, use in your decor, as a centerpiece on your table to display a pretty candle, for a party, & more.
Brunch for my Valentine
Since my pedestals will look great for any season, I chose to use these for a breakfast-brunch display for my Valentine.
