How-to Make a DIY Cake Stand- Thrifted Thursday!

DIY Cake Stand
Today I’m going to share a simple project that I did in preparation for my newly tiled kitchen.  Since I’m finished tiling the backsplash- Post coming soon!- I wanted a few more pretties for on my counters.  
This is seriously, so easy, animal without opposable thumbs could probably do it.  One minute, your done!  
I love this cake stand from Pottery Barn, but I don’t love the $35 price tag.  That is basically what I paid for all of the tile in my kitchen!  (Check the clearance at Lowes whenever you go in, you never know what you’ll find!  Maybe tiles for $.2 each!)
I found a small white milk glass bud vase for $.59 and a pretty plate for $.79 at my local thrift store.   I’m sure you have some at your thrift store too!
White Plate and Vase
Step 1:
Flip over the plate and add glue to the edge of the vase.  I used hot glue because it’s what I had on hand.  I used E6000 glue to glue together a tea cup/saucer sculpture for a Mad Tea Party shower and it worked like a dream.  Some readers said that it can be put in the dishwasher as well!

Step 2:
Stick it on the plate.
