A Homemade Christmas

When I was a little girl my mother made a lot of my gifts.  I had this Barbie cloak in navy blue with a snap and a Peter Pan collar.  It was my favorite outfit for Barbie.  Sometimes the best gifts aren't purchased, but made with love.  So, this year I have tried to make some things for my children.  I just finished a cake stand for their felt cakes, which will go in their bakery.

To make this cake stand you  need a wooden plate found in the clock making section and a wooden candle holder.  I painted and coated it with a clear satin finish, predrilled two holes and then drilled in the screw.  It took no time and was really inexpensive.
