The Friday Tutorial

Cake stand
I promised to tell you how to do your own cake stand from recycled glasses and tellers. Why not stick to the X-Mas spirit and make it from Christmas tellers? In Sweden you can buy these for next to nothing at the flea market.

You need: 3 tellers preferably in different seizes and 3 wineglasses also in different size. The glue from hell – or more correctly, one of those two components quick-expoxy glues. Finally you need some tape to stabilize the tellers when drying.

1. Mix the glue as instructed on the package. Glue the “rim side” of the wineglasses to the back of the tellers. Stabilize them with tape and let them dry.

2. When they are completely dry you add glue to the foot of the wineglasses. Be very careful with the glue. You don’t want to end up at the emergency room with a wineglass glued to your hand now do you?

3. Place the tellers on top of each other and stabilize them with tape. Let them dry.

4. Put something yummy on them. Here are some my Saint Lucia buns on a cake stand I made for Christmas last year.

Why stop at wineglasses?

Now I leave you for the weekend. Hope you have a creative one!

I plan to visit a hockey game, my first IRL ever but I also have some creative plans that contains felting and making chandeliers.

  1. Ja, de där är ett fint återbruk!

  2. Väskan hos mig har jag köpt för ca 10 år sedan på H&M. Tror att min äldsta tjej fick den på sin tredje födelsedag. Visst är den fin!?
