Let’s Get Creative

Now that we have all of our materials let’s get started. You can choose to buy the color plate and bowl you want for this project, or paint what you already have. I wanted a plate and bowl with texture, and I loved the red for Christmas.

Once you have your materials, flip the bowl over and add your glue.

Place the plate centered on top of the bowl quickly.

Place Plate Firmly on glue and allow to dry

Once glue has completely dried, if you painted it you will want to seal it with Modpodge. This will seal the paint so you can wash it. You can find it at your local dollar store or craft shop. If you did not paint the bowl and plate you have a. ready-made cake stand.

I love a good DIY project, and helping people create warm and cozy spaces in their homes. So if your someone who is ok with me being a hot mess express, a legging wearing, top bun sporting, kind of girl, then let's be best friends! You can never have enough friends right? I am a natural born nurturer, who always leads with my heart. I have learned it is ok to say no sometimes! My advice to you, take chances, in the end, you will regret the chances you did not take.
