An open ended craft...

Because my Husband thinks I am a slacker and that my "cake stand project" is not a craft at all... what would YOU do with this vintage gem?

Obviously, I cut some fancy polka dot paper into a great big circle with the help of a dinner plate... but... it's lacking something. I thought the vintageyness would pull it through to absolute fabulousness, but according to my Husband. That was a big fat no. Then again, who am I to ask my Husband for craft suggestions. That's where YOU come in. Just what DOES need to be done to this fabulous cake stand in order to make it?

I am sharing my holiday home decor and cleaning tips for the chance to win prizes from The SITS Girls and Great Cleaners.


  1. How about some shiny garland around the edge, or maybe even cotton balls to make a "fur" trim like is done on many projects this time of year? The ornaments seem a big large for the tree, so maybe switch them out of some smaller ones.

  2. Thanks, Rachel! Those are some great ideas. :) This is actually our "Charlie Brown" tree so to speak. The kids add THEIR ornaments to it all season long and then retire to the big tree (and/or trash can depending on if they survive the season.)

  3. Hi there, if this is your Charlie Brown tree, then leave it be - it's supposed to be different and unco-ordinated, right? Thanks anyway for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  4. It is, I was thinking what more could I do with my vintage dessert stand. It's got a few rusty/scratched up spots, but it's still more good quality than bad. :) I'll be checking out your blog!
