DIY // Vintage Spool Cake Stand


DIY vintage spool cake stand

I have a tendency to want to hoard vintage spools. I don’t know if this is a feeling anyone shares with me, but I just can’t help it, something about them is just awesome. I’ve had a few sitting around as simple decor for a while now, but I wanted a way to make them functional (aside from successfully collecting dust). Eventually I decided to try my hand at making them into cake stands and this is how they turned out.

To match my spool, I used dark walnut fast-dry stain, let it dry, and then used water based black craft paint over top and wiped off the excess.

I just used a cake dome from an old cake stand to cover the cupcakes. Wouldn’t this be adorable for a wedding? It’s definitely MUCH cheaper!
