Here's a fun way to use the left over or mismatched dishes you may have! Glue them together for cake stands, candy dishes, appies, fruit, jewelry, toiletries, art displays....get creative!

My daughter and I have made quite a few of these for gifts. I personally don't recommend hot glue, as I don't think it has the holding power for the long term. We use epoxy and haven't had any problems at all. We also use thrifted plates from our local Goodwill. We've gone for the clear glass plates and we use candlesticks for the bases. They are great for creating different heights and look less artsy-craftsy than bowls and mugs do as bases. We've used them for holidays, a wedding, and various birthday parties, and everyone we've given them to have loved them.

Tip: The glue should keep your cake stand together for many celebratory occasions if you take care of the piece properly. After use, carefully hand wash the stand with warm water.
