Handmade Gift Exchange

I am really excited to be participating in the Craftoholics Anonymous Handmade Gift Exchange! I was paired up with Kristi Von and she told me that her kitchen/dining room colors are red, black, and cream. I decided to make her a red dessert stand and cloche set.

I started by using a cheese dome that I bought a few months ago at a thrift store...

I then attached it to a wooden candle stick to make it into a pedestal...

Lastly, I painted it red and distressed it with sand paper and put a coat of modge podge on it so that it would have a nontoxic waterproof seal....

It's all boxed up to be sent to Kristi tomorrow!

I am excited to see what she made me! I will post about it when it arrives!!!


  1. This is beautiful and super creative! I'd be pumped to get this in the mail. I am sure that she will be, too!

  2. Great idea! This is beautiful! I'm your newest follower :)
