How to make a recycled cake stand

A fun way to use some unwanted crockery and glassware is to make a cake stand. You can use old saucers and plates for the bases and glasses, small candlesticks and vases for the stands in the middle. Make sure everything you are using is clean and dry, mark the centre of your plates and play around with how you’d like your cake stand to look.  Mix up some Araldite epoxy to the instructions on the packet and using a cotton bud, apply to the vases/glassware and place in the centre of the plate.  I would recommend leaving it to dry overnight, but you can add more levels and create the cake stand of your dreams!
