Cheap Cheap Cheap Cakestand

In Decorating, Design by Lisa Burnett

I am beginning to take notice of cake stands for some reason, I don't have one myself but maybe I will just have to make one of these that my mom made this past weekend.  She is feeling better and thanks for all of the well wishes from everyone!  There are 2 good things about this cakestand

1. It is Cute

2. It is CHEAP!

The bases of the stands are wooden candle holders –

and the tops are old hat box tops.  Paint both the candle holders and box tops and then rub with acryclic raw umber paint - Enjoy!  (We got the baby limes from walmart for about $1.00 a bag)
