This simple DIY cake stand is easy to embellish with your favorite scrapbook paper and Mod PodgeNow that spring is here, I’ve been looking for pretty ways to incorporate some spring colors and patterns in my home.

After visiting the craft store recently and coming across some new spring prints, I knew that all it would take was some colorful paper and Mod Podge to bring that spring!

So, I decided to start with dressing up one of my old cake plates, and dress it up for a spring brunch with my girlfriends. This project was so easy and the results are darling! Here’s how I made this DIY cake plate.

DIY Cake Stand

Supplies Needed:

  • Cake Plate
  • Patterned Paper
  • Mod Podge (I used their dishwasher safe formula but they have a long line of other formulas that would work great as well!)
  • Silhouette, craft knife and mat, or scissors (something to cut)

You can cut a simple circle, cut out a saying (I cut mine with my Silhouette), cut out shapes, etc. The possibilities are endless! I also cut out a border for my edge to embellish things a little more.

Apply a generous coat of Mod Podge to the surface of the cake plate and the back of the paper. Then, carefully place the paper on the cake plate and press down, smoothing out all the bubbles. Allow to dry for 15-20 minutes.
