I’m Sarah.

After graduating college, I worked as a TV news reporter at an NBC affiliate outside of Chicago. I then retired from that life to be a stay at home mom to my three little ones. While at home I was able to rekindle my love for decorating and crafts. A blog seemed like the perfect place to share those ideas. There is inspiration everywhere, I hope you find some here.

CEMENT CAKE PLATE

CEMENT CAKE PLATE

IMG_3912 IMG_3896IMG_3899 I love making decor that can go in my kitchen-especially cake stands and cake plates. I have seen cement cake stands and love the industrial look of them. I had this lone glass cloche that I got on clearance from a craft store. You can find some here. I was trying to decide what I should do with it and thought that I could make my own cement cake plate and use the glass cloche with it. 

To make

Supplies needed: Small amount of cement (I found mine at Home Depot) Cardboard circle container (I found mine at Michael's) Stone spray and seal (I found mine in the kitchen department at home Depot)

1. Mix your cement and place inside the lid of a cardboard circle container. I wanted my cake plate thin so I just used the lid. Let the cement set, a few days) When it's dry, remove the cardboard around the cement. Mine came out easily but if you have difficulty, run it under water to peel it off or use sand paper to get any remnants off the cement.

2. Spray the cement with the sealer. Follow the directions on the sealer. This particular sealer is used for granite countertops so it is food safe and makes the cement plate waterproof.

And that's it. I just love it and it was pretty easy to make. Now I have a use for this little glass cloche.IMG_3909
