Life is busy these days, isn’t it?

In our quest to fill our lives with as much wonderful as possible, and of course give back as much as we can, we seem to be busier than ever.

In fact, we’re so busy running from one thing to the next, that (and maybe I’m just speaking for myself here, but) I feel like it’s just so easy to loose track of what really matters.

A few weeks ago, I shared my goal to live a more mindful life this year. To really focus my time and energy on what matters most. To soak in those everyday, seemingly insignificant moments and find joy in the simple things.

Which is why I am so, so excited to introduce a new video series that I’ll be producing in partnership with my friends at The Brick. Drawing inspiration from that old farmhouse life – the neutral colours, charming character, home-cooked meals, & time with family – I hope to inspire you to join me in slowing down to enjoy the simple things.

I can’t wait to kick things off this week with this sweet little DIY cake stand…

Friends, this literally took me less than 2 minutes to make (and then of course, a few more waiting for it to dry).

So, here’s what you’ll need to make your own:
-unfinished wood candle holder – I picked mine up at Michaels (similar here)
-unfinished round wood plaque (similar here)
-wood stain (find the one I used here)
-strong glue (here’s what I used)

  1. This is such a simple idea – but I have wanted one of these wooden cake stands but could never quite handle the prices! And with this idea I imagine you could vary the height of the candlestick and size of the plate – perfect!! Thanks! I’m off to Michael’s!

  2. So cute!! I love this idea and I love the stain color you used, I haven’t tried the driftwood yet!! 🙂 Happy Friday girl!

  3. Your cake stand is adorable, but I’m obsessed with your candle holders! Please tell my they are DIY & there’s a tutorial.

  4. I love the simplicity but it also looks great! Question: do you know of a food- friendly stain in case I actually used it for cake or cookies!
