What better way to incorporate your party décor than decorating your cake stand? With a few swipes of Mod Podge and a few minutes of drying time, you can create your very own confetti cake stand in any color of the rainbow.

You will need:  a glass cake stand, tissue Paper, 1” hole punch, Mod Podge, and a paint brush.

Based on your party or theme, pick some coordinating colors of tissue paper. Carefully punch a bunch of circles with a 1″ hole punch. Be sure to make extra to sprinkle around your party! Place your glass cake stand upside down on your work surface. Pick up one piece of confetti in your finger tips and using your paint brush lightly coat one side of the confetti with Mod Podge. Stick onto your cake plate like a sticker. Be careful not to slide it around on the surface, and gently wipe away any streaks with a paper towel or Q-tip.  Repeat. Many times. Then repeat some more. Layer them until you like the result. If you want to remove a dot, just let it dry and peel it off. The dots are easily removable once your party is over. To make your creation more permanent, turn the stand upside down and spray the dots with a few layers of clear coat sealant and let dry (hand wash the stand if you decide to do this).

Once you have finished, you just flip over and enjoy. Since the dots and glue are under the glass, you can put food right on top with no worries.

  5. I’ve never used modge podge before & I’m not crafty…so, most of you will probably think this is a crazy question. How do we remove them once you are done with your party so you have a clear glass cake plate again? I guess you could do this on any form of glass (bowls, glasses, etc). Thanks in advance….

  7. Hi Kimberly–Once dry they are easy to get off. You could also just wash the whole stand and they would come off as well. xo Brittany

  8. This is a GREAT idea to dress up a plain glass cake stand. I also like how you could easily change up the look to match a different party.
