DIY Glitter Cake Set

I was at Ikea picking up some supplies for my office/craft room overhaul, when I spotted a plain white cake server set for only $6.

Plain white items are pretty much a dream for a DIY blogger. So many colors and ideas went thru my head and I could not resist buying them. (Lol, yet I went with my typical gold glitter...)  The glitter does NOT shed!!


Materials:
Ikea white cake server set (or any set)
Gold spray paint
Painters tape
Gold glitter craft paint
Paintbrush


Directions:

1) Grab your painter's tape and tape up the server to expose the handle only. (seriously, I forgot to photograph this step!?  But I did- I had terrible pregnancy brain & I am sorry!!)



2) Spray paint, let dry and remove tape.



*You can go without spray painting, but you will need several coats of glitter paint and it will be much less of a bright gold. Alternatively you can use plain gold craft paint, but gold spray paint has much more of the metallic look I like.
** Or you can just leave it as is and not add glitter- the gold handles look pretty awesome!
This brush has seen better days...

3) I applied three coats of gold glitter craft paint to make mine glittery. Because it is craft paint, the glitter does not shed, but you do need multiple coats for a more glittery look.

4) Finish with a gloss spray.

These are not dishwasher safe...  I know...  it is what we all prefer, but since it is my cake utensil set which gets use only a couple times a year, I can suck it up. The price of a glitter cake cutter set in stores is way more money than the approximate $10 I spent here!

They are food safe because the paint is only on the handle- the handle is not food safe so be sure to use the right end when cutting and serving your cake ;)





I have no need for more than one cake server set, but I kind of want to buy another and do a different design!  Love the glitter dipped look, but maybe some pink next time?
