DSC_0546 Aged brandy balls all nice and pretty!


While doing some Christmas shopping, the hubbs and I came across a cute little 3-tier cake stand for roughly $50. I loved it, but being as frugal as I am… I just couldn’t justify the cost. We do entertain fairly frequently and I wanted something similar, but I put it on the back burner until I could find something cheaper. Well, cheaper ended up being $25 at Goodwill and a glue gun. I was running errands this morning and decided to pop on over to Goodwill since it was along my route. A few cute pieces of dishware, some vases, and some glass candlestick holders later I walked out carrying the basis for five different confectionery stands. Mine aren’t perfect, and most of them have a slight tilt, or aren’t exactly level, but considering the small cost and amount of time to make them, I’m not at all bothered by it. Check out the photos below for a tutorial!
