DIY recycled pedestal tray

made from an old chipped cake dome and 
an old oil pan

This cake stand with dome had seen its glory days- and now lay abandoned in my basement with a huge chip in it & this metal oil pan had also seen better days- my mom had actually already painted this for me to turn into a serving tray - Then she  came up with this fab idea- turn it in to an awesome pedestal tray!  
 I used my go to adhesive -E 6000- I used liberally along the edge on the glass cake stand and let it dry (upside down) overnight- be careful to follow the E6000 directions or it may not hold properly!
 and voila the finished pedestal!
I love the glass/metal combination- and it fits in with the  cottage 
style that I have going on my front porch

 This year I decided to go with an all white theme for fall on my front porch, and this tray was a perfect accent!
 I just used a single strand of white berries and wrapped them in a circle
 - dropped in the mini pumpkin gourds I picked up at my local grocery store- 2 for a dollar!
such a lovely fall scene I am trying to conjure up some peace this
fall season....
and what to do with the leftover cake dome? it was still in good shape with no  chips or cracks- so I paired it with this cute vintage metal tray that I already had(you can see my selection of vintage metal trays for sale at my etsy shop www.MimisSuitcase.etsy.com)
I think I just might have to bake something to go under it today!


  1. Cute! Love the white fall theme!

  2. Love the tray and the cute pumpkin display! :)
