DIY Cake & Cookie Stands | A Wedding Project

My moms side of the family is 100% Italian.  Apparently it’s an Italian tradition to have a cookie table at your wedding.  My brother is getting married in October and my mom was put in charge of keeping this tradition alive. The tricky part… finding a way to display 20 dozen different cookies.  So, here it is. My first, of hopefully many, “A Wedding Project” posts.  DIY cake and cookie stands!  Weddings can get super expensive.  My mom would’ve paid a small fortune if she went out and bought 15 glass cake stands.  So, we decided to make our own! DIY projects can really help you save money and make your big day a bit more personal OR these are great just to have in your home!  Here’s what you need:

Plate  (mine came from the Goodwill – they were no more than $1 a piece)

Glass candle stick, vase or glass (again, from the Goodwill)

Epoxy (Any craft or home improvement store… mine came from Hobby Lobby)

Find the center of the plate. I’m terrible at this so, I recruited my brother… It is for his wedding afterall.

Follow the directions on the epoxy. Ours said to place it on each piece and let it set for 5-10 minutes.

Once the time passes, place the pieces together.

…and that’s it!

Different shapes and sizes…

I love you internet, but I wasn’t going to bake dozens of cookies just so you can see… Megan’s bridal shower was yesterday and I had already made these cupcakes. Picture the stacks of cookies or even a single cake. 

Super easy and super affordable!
