A Piece of Cake...part 2

After making my milk glass cake plate I decided that I needed a more casual one for everyday use. But - I also wanted it to be personalized. I did the same thing as before (gorilla glue epoxied a plate to a candle holder) but I followed this tutorial at Centsational Girl (one of my all time favorite blogs) to make it more fabulous. And this is what I got:



This is the top, personalized with a H (for Hicks).



I already had the paint and the stencils so I only paid 25 cents for the plate and 50 cents for the candle stick - that make one really cute 75 cent cake plate!!!

I'm adding this to all of my favorite linky parties - click on the buttons on the right to go and check them out!

Hi there, fellow PEAR! What a fun idea. I have so many vintage plates that I use for desserts from time to time - I think they'll be turning into cake stands v. soon :)

I love the monogram! What a great idea. Did you do the stencling on the underside of the plate, or on top?

Thanks for linking up!
