Funfetti Cake Plate

I’m a huge fan of all things bright and colorful and mixing bright and colorful with a cake plate just seemed natural when I was given the opportunity to review DecoArt‘s new glass paint recently! I made this easy Funfetti Cake Plate using the tutorial I’m going to show you below…

If you follow me on Instagram, you saw that I received an awesome box full of DecoArt’s new glass painting line a few weeks ago and I’ve had so much fun dreaming up possibilities with it!

My project centered around their glitter glass paint line and I’m going to show you just one of a million things you could do to make your next party even more spectacular.

-Ikea Round Glass Plate (99 cents each)
-Cake Plate Base (Ikea candle holder $7.99)
DecoArt Glitter Gloss Enamel Paint 
-DecoArt White Frosted Glass Enamel Paint
-DecoArt dauber brush
-Hot Glue to secure base to plate
-Disposable plate for paint
EASY Instructions
1. Start by cleaning your plate with soap and water very well. You can also wipe the plate down with rubbing alcohol to clean.
2. Take your first glitter paint color, put on a small disposable plate, and use dauber to dab complete circles all over the plate. You’ll repeat this with as many colors as you decide to use on your plate.
Here’s some views of the front and back of the plate once it’s all dotted and before it is frosted….

In the sunlight, you can see how it glitters and sparkles too!

3. Once you have achieved the desired amount of dots and colors you want to use, let the plate dry for a day or so to completely harden up. 
4. Once dry, use the DecoArt White Frosted Glass Enamel to paint over your dots to give it a complete look and make the “stand” of the plate less noticeable through the plate (remember, you’re putting things ON the plate, so it won’t be as noticeable once a cake is on there from the top). Note: the frosted paint really needs to be applied evenly and in the same direction for a desirable result.
5. Let the frosted paint dry and then secure the base of the cake plate to the actual plate using your glue of choice.
I just LOVE how this cake plate turned out and can’t wait to show you some more fun projects using this line. DecoArt’s Glass Paint is available at Michael’s stores now. Want more fabulous glass painting ideas? Visit our group Pinterest page to see what other bloggers have made with these products!
