DIY cake plate

I have developed a love of cake plates!

Everything seems much more grand when presented on a raised 
platform instead of a boring old plate!

So of course I had to figure out a way to DIY one.

I saw a cake plate with a wooden base 
and white plate top, that I loved! 

The wooden bottom reminded me of a candlestick.
I knew I could make something similar.

I picked up a white, scalloped 
dinner plate and a small white bowl
from Walmart.

I found the gold leaf plate at Home Goods.

I didn't want this to be permanent, so I just stuck these together with hot glue.

I hot glued this one as well.  

Hot glue is not very sturdy (these will pull apart easily) 
so I kept that in mind when 
I was placing items on my DIY cake plates.

This DIY cake plate goes perfectly on my fall table, 
that I'll be sharing later this week.
