Cakes come in every shape, size, and flavour and the stands that support them should be the same. This week we will break the mould and create our own DIY Boho Cake Stand. This cake stand will be spring themed in the hope that warm weather won’t be far behind! When your stand is done be sure to use sealer on the wood base and hand wash only. A little stenciling and some glue and we’re on our way. It’ll be a piece of cake!
What you’ll need:
Wood base (a candle holder works perfectly)
Repositionable stencil spray (helps to hold the stencil in place)
Enamel paints in white, turquoise, yellow and peach
Paint brushes (one wide and one detail)
E600 Glue (a silicone glue that holds just about anything)
Paint the different sections of your wood base in the three coloured paints, creating a striping effect. Paint the flat top of your wood base, the side that will be holding the plate. Let dry.
Paint white lines between each colour on your wood base. This step is a little tricky, take your time.
Using your stencil spray and pouncer; on the top of the base, stencil one elephant (or whichever image you have chosen) in white paint. Let dry.
Using the same stencil, stamp the elephant image evenly around the edge of the plate six times. Let dry.
Use a border stencil to fill in the gaps between the elephants around the edge of the plate. I chose the diamond pattern seen here.
Going back to your wooden base, colour in a portion of the elephant in the colours you used on the base.
Colour in the same design on the elephants on the diamonds on the glass plate.
When the elephants are dry, use the E600 to attach the plate to the base. Leave this to dry for an hour or so and your Boho Cake Stand is ready to hold tasty treats!
