DIY vintage cakestand compote plate - camille styles events

If there’s one entertaining obsession we don’t take lightly, it’s our cake stands (seriously, you should see our collection!) So when Camille came across these gorgeous vintage pedestals on BHLDN, the crafter in me couldn’t ignore a sudden jolt of inspiration. The result? A seriously simple three-step DIY that transforms vintage plates & compotes into stackable dessert platters. The complete instructions after the jump!

  1. Head to your favorite local thrift shop and pick up three complementary plates or saucers, and three glass goblets or compotes.
  2. Line rim of compotes with glue using a hot glue gun.
  3. Quickly and firmly, press the glass against the bottom of the plate.

    I love this, and it is so unique…But doesn’t the glue fade with washing?

    • Camille Styles says:

      Hey Rym – thanks, glad you enjoyed! This is definitely a hand-wash only piece. The bottom of the stand shouldn’t need heavy scrubbing, so the area around the glue can be handled with care.

  3. So pretty! I love the idea of using colored glass, too!

    My sis made me a great cake stand like this from mugs and plates inspired by one that Anthropologie had! I use it a lot!
