If you can use a hot glue gun, then these desserts stands will be a snap for you to put together. Follow along below for the full tutorial.
Begin by using your pencil and ruler to make lines across the back of the tile so that you can find the absolute middle.
Now that you have the center marked, add a nickel sized portion of hot glue and affix your egg top. You will want to make sure that your egg is centered and not tipped at all or your pedestal will be crooked. You can either use a level on the egg itself to make sure it is straight, or flip the pedestal over before the glue has a chance to harden and make sure that it is level that way.
Once your pedestals are assembled, use your gold paint pen to paint the edges of the pedestal for that extra special gold touch.
Once the gold paint is dry, they are ready to use. The tops of the marble tile are food safe, but not the painted edges. So I would suggest either using a pretty piece of cut paper under the food, or not letting the food touch the edges.
I personally love the pop of color that the Easter egg brings to the pedestal and because we used the large eggs, it is really sturdy.
Just think how cute your cupcakes or macarons would look all piled on these marble beauties! I recently used them to have a cupcake at every place setting of my spring table photo shoot and they were just perfect! The color pops, marble, and gold are the perfect combo!
I hope you enjoyed this easy DIY. Be sure to check back tomorrow because I have yet another use for plastic Easter eggs that is going to blow you away. At least I hope!
P.S. If you like this idea for using up your old plastic Easter eggs, take a look at this fun pipe cleaner flower vase for the kids to get their craft on too!
