DIY Galvanized Cake Pedestal


Have you seen the cute galvanized cake pedestals?  I first saw them on Antique Farmhouse's website.  I don't think they are currently for sale but here's another site that had them too.

Cute, right?

Well, I saw this and quickly thought it looked like some things I already had, and you probably do to!



Pie pans and galvanized buckets


This DIY project is so simple, I feel silly even writing it out for you.  Just remove any handles from the buckets, turn upside down, and glue to the bottom of the pie pans!


One of my pans was curved in the center so I pressed down to make sure the glue came in contact with both the bucket and pie pan.


Here's the glue I used...Strong Stik by DAP.  You can find it at Home Depot or other hardware stores.  It's repositionable for up to 10 minutes then it begins to adhere.  It's pretty good stuff!

And, here are the cake pedestals after just minutes of putting them together!



Underneath, no exposed adhesive :)


Use two different size buckets to vary the height.


Ready for an impromptu, rainy day s'mores party!




Rosie had to get in on the s'more action.  She's helping with the skewers.  Although for me, a big plate of marshmallows roasted in the microwave is my kinda indoor roasting.  Give them about a minute and we're talking perfectly brown roasted marshmallow perfection!  Jus' saying

Alright, what are you waiting for?  Go grab those buckets, pie pans, and glue and get to DIYing!

Thanks for stopping by and God bless!
