Celebrate Good Times!

So happy to have all the virtual travelers from Designers Crafts Connection here this week. Summer is the time to celebrate and what a fun way to do so. Shabby Chic Celebration for a sweet country gathering. Deflecto products can be found at local art, craft and educational stores in addition to online retailers such as Amazon.

Instead if sicking anything to the my dessert stand I made little skirts for each tier. This allows me to pull off and wash for a quick Follow these simple steps for a sweet skirted dessert stand.

3 Tier Dessert Stand - 20201 CR
Versa Grip Wide Clip Sign Holder - 20007 CR

Clear elastic
Fabric (rip a 1 1/4 inch strip)
Heat n Bond
Elna Sewing Machine
Measuring tape

Measure Around each tiers circumference. Cut elastic one inch shorter then each measurement. Set sewing machine for zig zag stitch. Place elastic at top edge of lace sew about 1/2 inch to secure pieces together. Pull elastic towards you lightly as the machine moves forward. Sew all they way to the end of your elastic in same manner. Match you ends and sew together to create circle.
The process is the same for each tier. The elastic will hold nicely around each tier and come off for cleaning after your event. if your little skirt keeps slipping you may want to add a glue dot or two to assist you in putting the skirt on the stand.

Now as the party moves on well wishes will be added to the naked sticks on the right with mini clothes pins...they aren't just for their looks they are super useful tulle pompoms will also be dangling from them but made a great space holder for the yummy treats baking in the oven.
