Pie stand turned kitchen helper

I recently threw a wedding shower for my friends Daniel and Sarah. The theme was picnics and pies and it was incredibly cute. I had lots of amazing pie making, decorating friends who helped make the evening a success. My favorite part of the decor was the pie table.

For the table decor we used a linen tablecloth over a regular old church table and placed an old barn door on top. A burlap runner completed the look beautifully. We utilized upside down wooden boxes and pie stands to display the gorgeous pies. We created the pie stands using old Goodwill plates and candlestick holders. SO EASY. SO CHEAP. You must do this. Why? Because after the shower is over you can use the pie stand in your home for many many purposes!

For example, the checkered pie plate is now my kitchen helper next to the stove. It is currently housing my cooking staples. Sea Salt, Sriracha, Local Honey and Olive Oil.

I think the pie stands could also be super cute in a bathroom holding cosmetics or hair supplies. The possibilities are many, the materials are few. To make this pie stand you need four things: old plate, candlestick holder, sandpaper and glue gun. If you felt like spending a few more minutes on this you could paint the candlestick a cool color as well.

-Wash plate and holder. Let it dry completely.

 -Using sandpaper, rough up a small patch on the underside of the plate. Also sand the top of the holder lightly. This creates an ideal surface for the glue to adhere.

-Put a nice even circle of glue on underside of plate. Immediately stick the holder in the center of the plate in the center of the glue. Leave this upside down while it adheres and dries completely.

That’s it! You’re done! No more work to do and you have something totally cute to try out in different areas of your home. Let me know if you make one, and where and how you plan to use it!
