I didn't want the traditional silver wedding cake stand, so I made my own!

STEPS
TOOLS

Before getting a wooden box know the measurement of your cake base. My cake was square, therefore I bought a square box.

Cut fabric larger than the dimensions of the box. This will give you the extra room to staple the excess fabric underneath the box. Of course I chose the coral color of my wedding in satin fabric. :0)

Lay fabric over box & staple around the underside base. You may need an extra set of hands. This was an old cd case I found at my local thrift store for $2!!

I'm using it now as a display for some of our wedding photos! ;0).  I also made the fabric flowers you see :-). And next you will see it in action as our wedding cake stand....
