$3 DIY Tiered Cake Plate

This post is LONG overdue.  I was cleaning up my SD cards and found these pictures, so I decided it was time to share.  

I made this cake plate for Khloe's 1st birthday party back in September 2013.  I needed two tiered cake plates for my table arrangement and I wasn't about to pay $30 each for them.  So, I was in Dollar Tree looking around one day and the idea struck me.  I could take two plates and a vase and make a cake plate!  I love it when the stars align.  

I chose 1 large round platter...

1 smaller platter...

 And 1 skinny, single rose vase. I chose a sturdier one, not a glass one.  

They were all kinds of mismatched, but it didn't matter.  

I used Gorilla glue to attached together.  Large platter on bottom, vase in the middle and smaller platter on top.

After the glue was dry, I spray painted the whole thing white to make everything cohesive.

I used these cake plates for Khloe's birthday party last year and again this year.  I couldn't be happier with them.  

So, as far as pricing goes-

Large platter: $1
Small platter: $1
Vase: $1
Gorilla Glue & spray paint: already owned

Grand total: $3
