I love how the pieces of this stand blend together to make a rustic and folksy piece!

you will need:

1 large plate for top (I used an enamle plate)

1 small plate for base

1 clean asparagus can


Oil based white paint

water based craft paint

brush epoxy glue

  1. Paint one coat of oil paint on your can and allow to dry completely
  2. paint two or three layers of craft paint on top of the can, allowing each coat to dry before beginning the next.
  3. turn your small plate upside down and glue the can to the center using strong epoxy and following the package instructions.
  4. allow to dry completely.
  5. Repeat the process with the large plate.
  6. Allow to dry completely and it's ready to use!
