I found a serving tray at Target I loved. But the price was a little more than I wanted to spend. I searched the internet and found just what I needed to make my own. I though they would make great gifts for Weddings, Teachers, Girlfriends, Birthdays or even Christmas. Here is what I came up with…
What you need
Melamine plates (I got mine at Target)
Cake Stand Handles (HERE )
This company is going to be expanding. They have told me they will be getting more styles soon!
Drill and Drill bit (Mine was 5/16ths)
Tape your plates in a plus sign on the right sides of the plate. Find center and mark it with a marker. Make sure you are taping and drilling from the right side of the plate. Drilling from the wrong side can cause the plate to crack and break. I learned from experience. Cracking can occur at anytime. But I have found the tape really helps alot!
Place your plates right side up and on something you can drill into. I just used and old board in my garage. Do not do it on your nice kitchen table or floor (I did that once.Right into my linoleum. Live and learn!)
Drill slowly into the plate. Once through reverse the drill and pull out. You should be left with pretty little holes like these above.
Take your handles and thread the screws through the holes. Voila, a beautiful new serving plate. I am excited to try the 3 tiered plate too. The great thing about these handles is you only need one set and you can change them out for holidays or seasons.
Perfect for serving 2 Princess there lunch!
