 Foam Cake Stand DIY!
#MakeItFunCrafts
I was sent this fabulous box of  FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam Discs
A huge variety of discs as well as a cutter and smooth finish!
I needed a cake stand for my sons birthday party and knew I could use it again for Halloween!
You will need:
1: 11" FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam Disc
1: 10" FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam Disc
1: 8" FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam Disc
12: 4" FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam Discs

I used hot glue and glued 4 small discs to the largest one for the base.
Then I stacked 4 small discs high in the center.
Added the next largest disc, 4 small and then a small topper!
Then I used a butter knife to spread the smooth finish over the large disc surfaces.
It's lightweight and spreads on just like icing!
It fills in all the open cells and gives it a smooth finish--imagine that!
Let it dry completely.  Then you can sand the finish down to smooth out any hard lines.
Next I spray painted it outside.
And let it dry overnight.
Next I used a spool of satin ribbon...
Just a piece long enough to wrap around the cellular foam edges of each tier.
Then I used a straight pin to hold the ribbon in place.
Just like so!
The ribbon could be easily changed out depending on the party colors or theme!
Filled with yummy treats, this makes the perfect table piece!
