Easy DIY Cake Stand (Ikea Hack)

245,390 Views
Want a fabulous plate to show off your home baked goods? It is so easy to make your own brilliant cake stand, just using stuff from Ikea.
Not only is the cake stand really affordable but you can make whatever design you like as long as you can find it on a paper napkin.
Time: 1 Hours Difficulty: Easy
You don't have to use stuff from Ikea but almost everything you need is there and affordable.
You will need a glass plate, candlestick holder and paper napkin. I use a paper napkin from Ikea. However, you can get paper napkins in loads of fabulous designs like my favourite Marimekko.
For my cake stand, I used this Ikea napkin with the fish design. As the fish design was distinctive I decided to carefully cut it out.
I stuck both fishes from the paper napkin face down to the underside of the plate using a decoupage glue Mod Podge click here to see the one I used
I wanted a silver cake stand so I then covered the base of the glass plate with 2 layers of tissue paper in silver. Again I used Mod Podge for this.
Depending on what napkin you use you may just want to cover the base of the plate with tissue paper in another colour or spray paint it.
When you have finished decoupaging the glass plate, trim any overhang and seal it with a final layer of mod podge.
Next, I spray painted the candlestick base with silver paint to match.
Finally using a hot glue gun, I stuck the candlestick to the decoupaged glass plate.
Don't forget to check out my blog post for more detailed instructions.
Decoupaging with napkins is great fun. I have even decoupaged a whole bench before with Marimekko napkins click here to see it.

    Not for long. Use E6000 glue. Then you can wash in the sink.

    Love this idea of decoupaging with napkins. Will definitely have to get my creative juices flowing and see what I can do with what. Thanks! (By the way, it's not 2 plates as the email header suggested; I was wondering how they attached them and then realized it's only using 1 plate.)
