Etceteras: capiz shell tidbit stand

Even though it’s the middle of February, the beach, warm days, shells, starfish and coral are on my mind. I can’t wait for warmer days!


I found these capiz shell plates at the dollar store and bought four of them. They’re decorative pieces so my plan was to use them as d├ęcor and for projects. Now I'm thinking I need to go back and get some more of them. Even though you can't eat off of the, they would look pretty under a soup bowl. Definitely need to get more.


The first project that came to mind was a cake stand or tidbit stand. I know the blogosphere has inspired us with just about every type of plate and candle holder combination imaginable but there’s always room for one more. 


I used a plain frosted glass candle holder and added mother of pearl shells to complement the beachy-shell look. The shells already had holes in them {they were upcycled from a pair of sandals} so I strung them onto embroidery thread and which I wrapped around the stem. 


The plate and candle holder are held together with E-6000 glue. 


 
 
DIY cake stands or tidbit stands are so fun to make. I would love to know who actually came up with the original brilliant idea.


Thanks for visiting.
