These cake stand centerpieces are elegant and unique. Plus, you can choose whatever colors work best with your color scheme and flowers. Here's how we got this look.

  1. PREPARE: Always work in a well ventilated area and cover nearby items with drop cloths to protect from overspray. Wipe down the cake plates using a lint free rag.
  2. PAINT: Shake your can of Ultra Cover 2X Satin spray paint (we used Satin Summer Squash) for 1 minute after the ball begins to rattle. Hold the paint can 10-12” from the cake plate and spray in a steady back-and-forth motion, slightly overlapping each stroke. Apply 2 or more light coats a few minutes apart. For best results, apply multiple light coats instead of one heavy coat. For the metallic cake plate, follow these same steps using Universal Metallic spray paint in Titanium Silver.
  3. FINISH: Allow the cake plates to dry for at least two hours before assembling the centerpieces. 
To assemble your centerpieces, add complementary colored flower balls or flowers in staggered vases. Have you used Rust-Oleum for a wedding or party decoration? Share your project with us!
