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).

  18. I am making a 15 inche wedding cake stand with a piece of square bevel glass bought from goodwill for $2 and four candle sticks bought from dollar store for $1 each and since the small hole at the top of the candle shows I took a lavender rose and put it down in the hole and it is beautiful & bought a cake board 14in and it fits perfectly in the middle so that you can see the holders with roses. My only problem is the glue shows through the glass and I am using BEacon clear glue for glass & metal and more bought from michaels fir $8.00 I tried going around the edge yo take off extra glue but then it makes stick loose. I also made all my glass centerpieces for the all tables for my wedding reception by using i candle stick from dollar store and one round vase looks like a decorated flower vase and it is beautiful and I used the same glue and it worked great but it does not matter if I can see the glue because I will be putting a submerged light in the flower vase & then clear water beads & then fresh flowers . Can you please tell me the best glue or product that I can use for my cake stand so that the glue don't show.

  19. I like the blog. As you can keep the cake on Cake Stand with different decorative cake stand.
