I enjoy making cake stands out of china from thriftstores and I have made several, both for myself and as presents. But I have always just had a foot (porcelain candelstick or something else that fits) and a singel plate. Now I'm making one with three plates and a figurine on the top :-) It's not glued yet in the pictures, but I will do that this evening, after cleaning the china carefully. .
I don't know yet if I'm going to use it for cakes or for jewelry...or something else. It's kitsch I guess, but I think that's fun. Have you made any cake stands?
I also borrowed an idea from Stylizimo blog - to make washi tape antlers. I just looked at her photo and started taping. It took less than 10 minutes.
This is what the antlers look like on Stylizimo blog...
And this is what my antlers look like on my wall... can you see the similarity? Ha ha, my deer is a bit more long-faced...
I wanted it to peek under the clock a little bit, but I miscalculated and now a little too much of the antlers are hidden... Sorry about the crappy photos. I must take some time to learn to take better photographs. And try to use the daylight instead of shooting in the evening... :-)
Anyway, know that the deer is there I guess I will let it stay a little while. Did you do any DIY or home projects during the weekend?
In my Daily dose of quirkiness the deer theme goes on. This is a poirtrait of tattoo artist Liam Sparkes by photographer Emily Hope. I love it!
