Rustic Entertaining Idea: DIY Tabletop Stone Platter

Once Wed

This is one of those ideas that turns out to be so simple to do, it makes you wonder why you didn't think of it before. A rustic stone platter is an elegant alternative to those ubiquitous tree stumps, and makes an elegant cake stand or cheese board.

The only part that may stump you for a moment is where to source such beautiful stones to begin with — but a visit to a stone and tile shop, home improvement store, or even your local beach should turn up plenty of options.

Once you've found a smooth, flat stack that works well together, clean the surfaces where they'll attach and then secure with Gorilla Glue or some other ultra-strong adhesive.
