DIY Tuesday: Glass Cake Stand


Remember the "Let Them Eat Cake" party I posted last week? Well, I promised I would post some of the simple projects I did for the party!
So, to start, here is the DIY for the simple Cake Stands!

First, I would like to note that these cake stands only cost me $2 each to make! Which saved me a ton of money especially considering that I needed 6 stands for all of my party guests.



I also did a similar version of this cake stand for my cousin's wedding,
and I really like how they turned out!
Learn where I purchased my supplies and how to make your own glass cake stand by clicking below!



Glass Cake Stand
Materials Needed...
Tall glass candle holder (I found mine at the Dollar Store)
Glass plate, small or medium sized (also can be purchased at the Dollar Store)
Clear multipurpose or glass adhesive (ie. gorilla glue or E-6000, can be purchased at any large craft store)

Step 1. Clean you plate and candle holder and let them sit out to dry (they have been sitting on the shelf uncovered at the Dollar Store, who knows what could be on them!)


Step 2. Be sure to look carefully at your adhesive's directions, some will tell you to slightly damped the surface before gluing. Then, place a thin coat of glue around the perimeter of the top of your candle holder. 


Step 3. Carefully center the plate on top of the candle stick and let dry according to glue directions. (You can also set a book or something heavy on top of the stand as it drys)

And your done! Almost too simple right?

...if you would like to make a higher cake stand like I did for my cousin's wedding, just buy multiple candle holders and glue the tops together (so 1 candle stick is upside down).
