Stenciled Cake Stand

Sharing is caring!

There’s not a lot that I’m the best at in this over-saturated blogging world, but I have a good shot at being the best at doing a terrible job at stenciling.  I’ve tried to stencil furniture, ceilings, shirts, picture frames… oh what, you don’t remember those posts??  That’s because they stunk!!  But stick with me here, because I think Amy of Mod Podge Rocks may have cured my stencil-itis!!  She has found a way to make even someone like me rock at stencils!

Peel and Stick stencils that are re-positionable!  Have you ever tried these?  You must, you absolutely must!  My issue with stencils has always been the sliding.  I’ve tried taping them down and I’ve tried spray adhesive and nothing seems to prevent the sliding.  Then you get the blurred lines and the seepage under the stencil and it just never looks pretty.  But with these peel and stick ones, you push it down flush and can even hold it in the air and it won’t slide around!

Now that I have you convinced that you too can be a stenciling goddess, let’s see where we started.

I had this plain white cake stand, that I actually love, but the base part was starting to get scratched up and just not looking the best.

I wanted to jazz it up somehow but still keep it subtle.  I love the rustic, wooden cake stands I’ve been seeing lately, but they aren’t entirely the style of my home.  I decided to put a little whimsical twist on that and use a wood grain stencil with a spring green paint and some silver glitter.

The entire project took me about 10 minutes total!  Just use your pouncer to lightly apply your paint, peel the stencil off while wet and then sprinkle some glitter on!  You can clean the stencil with soap and water between applications if you need to.  I love that this stencil can be cleaned and still retain it’s stickiness so you can use it over and over again!

My cake stand is now a perfect match for the rest of the house and I’m itching to use it this spring!

I think you definitely gave your cake stand a little oomph! It looks great. I tried some of these adhesive and reusable stencils on mason jars and loved them. I am not sure what I would make...maybe try and etch glass with some etching cream?

I stink at stenciling too ... but you've peaked my curiousity here. I think I'm going to have to give those stencils a try this weekend. And the cake stand looks terrific!
