It is clear that the star party these days is Halloween and in Decoesfera we have a lot of ideas that we have been publishing these days to help you at home to those who prepare that night in a special way. However, for those who have other types of celebrations pending (although thinking about it, the truth is that this same idea in black and orange would also be perfect on Halloween), I propose a low cost DIY to present cakes and sweets in full color.
It is very, very simple. That is why it is always important that this extra work that represents making a beautiful presentation, we keep in mind when setting up our parties. The hard part is cooking, preparing food for many, and that the sweets are perfect ... The simple thing is to present it beautifully. It is what takes less time, and will make the rest of our effort, look twice as much. Ready?
This DIY clearly demonstrates that the beautiful does not have a high price. With few things we can create some really great pedestals for cakes and for a few euros. In addition, in this case they buy the materials, but If you put imagination, surely there are things at home that are not used and that we can use (Suddenly, a set of wooden pieces of the child that we have kept for years comes to mind):
- 3 pieces of wood that serve as a base
- 3 discs of different diameters, also of wood
- Glue or glue strong
- Multi-colored paint(the chalk paint is perfect for this kind of thing)
Step 1: painting
Since the idea is to have several paint colors, before we start painting, we think color combinations very well What we want to do We can help ourselves with a small drawing so as not to be mistaken, since then we will have a hard time going backwards.
A good reference for the table to be perfect and our cake bases are fully integrated, is choose the accessories with touches of color in the range of which we are going to paint. It seems silly, but in decoration, repeating patterns always works and more with colors. It's a simple trick that will make all the elements look great.
On the other hand, before we start painting, We must have the surface covered where we are going to do it. It is ideal to have a couple of newspaper papers where you can let dry the pieces that are already painted. Once dry, it is best to paint them on the other side, so that no piece of natural wood is visible. On the other hand, it is not necessary to paint all the elements. They can be phenomenal if we use colorless varnish in some, and so, we give the whole a much more natural touch.
Pasting the pieces
The process is very simple: once they are dry and with a second coat of paint, the ideal is to stick them. Yes, you have to be very careful and measure where the center is to not be wrong. If from some angle, the base looks "off center", the result will not convince us.
Our cake stands are ready. It is time to set a beautiful table with the other matching elements (glasses, cups, plates, napkins, flowers ...). We can use them individually, or make a kind of candy tower and overlap each other.
The truth is having several pieces of this type will give us a lot of play when setting up a table. On the one hand, we can play with the height and on the other, taking into account the size of the sweets we have made, we can give them different uses. Another advantage that seems to me a point to consider, is that once the party ends, they are not the typical piece that we keep in the kitchen, because it makes no sense to put it somewhere else ... Wouldn't they be perfect in the bathroom with some soaps and some candle? Or in the kitchen with several plants or succulents?
Honestly, it is one of those DIY that makes you want to do and arouses creativity and the desire to work with your hands ... Does the same thing happen to you?
