West Elm inspired Cake Stand: Make this easy handmade decor in just a few minutes with dollar store supplies for Halloween!
Howdy! I’m back in Texas doing wedding planning for my sister and spending precious last moments with my grandmother.
When I was looking for pretty and modern Halloween decor in my “go to” spots, I fell in love with a glossy black cake stand from West Elm. Everything about it was perfection except for the price tag. $69 wasn’t exactly in my budget…. but the Dollar Tree always is!
Check out how I made my own glossy black cake stand for under $10. (Actually, a whole two whopping buckaroos!)
West Elm Inspired Cake Stand
Candle stick holder and glass dinner plate from Dollar Tree
Glossy Black Spray Paint (I used a matte black because we already had a can in the garage…)
Learn from my mistake: Paint, then glue! (Otherwise you will have a clear circle in the middle of the plate.)
Step one: Place the plate and candle holder upside down on a newspaper/drop cloth outside. Spray paint a few light coats.
Step two: Once completely dry, line the top rim of the candle holder with glue and center the plate on top.
Tip: Don’t spray paint the top of the glass plate. The black paint will show through the glass and it will still be food safe! It also has a lovely glossy layer. 🙂
Doesn’t my gilded pumpkin look spooktacular on it? 😉
It’s a perfect last-minute handmade decor item for your Halloween party or decor! See how I used it for my Witches Tea here.
