I love the Target collar spot! And I know that I am not alone with my obsession 😉 A couple of months ago I snagged a cute little cake stand with a wooden base, but I was NOT a fan of the red and boring light colored wood base. Sooooo….   This DIY Black and Gold Cake Stand Makeover was born!

I am so in love with this DIY black and gold glitter cake stand! I want to use it every day! Hmmm... cake every day... not a bad idea ;)

This is the BEFORE cake stand. Practical. Sort of ok. But I am sure that you’ll agree its a little lack luster…

Boring!

So with a little chalk paint, gold glitter and ingenuity, this fun and sparkly DIY Black and Gold Cake Stand quickly replaced the previous boringness!

This a really easy project, and goes fairly quickly, with the exception of letting things dry. Want to give your own boring cake stand a glittery makeover? Here’s what you need!

Chalkboard contact paper
Black acrylic paint
Gold glitter
mod podge
clear spray paint

Step #1 – Use the black acrylic paint to cover the bottom and sides of the cake plate part of your stand. I also went up and over the top edge by about half an inch to make sure there was no red showing through. Set aside to dry.

Step #2 – Coat the stand with mod podge and sprinkle with glitter. Set aside to dry.

Step #3 – Spray the whole thing with clear spray paint to seal and protect. I doubled up, with 2 coats to seal and keep the glitter from falling out.

Step #4 – Place the cake stand upside down on the contact paper and trace the top. Cut out the circle, inside the line so that its slightly smaller than the cake stand top. Carefully peel the backing off and apply the contact paper to the top, smoothing out bubbles as you go.

I am so in love with this DIY black and gold glitter cake stand! I want to use it every day! Hmmm... cake every day... not a bad idea ;)

Voila! Now you’ve got your own DIY black and gold glitter cake stand! And the best part is that the contact paper is food safe and wipe-able! You can place your cake directly on top of this cake stand and not have to worry about any ickiness or chemicals touching your food 🙂
