Have you seen the DIY cake/dessert stands made from a candle holder and a plate? They are so easy! Get yourself a candle holder, a plate and adhesive (I used E6000) and you’re good to go.
I’ve been wanting to make one of these since last Christmas when I was thinking about handmade gifts. I never did make any last year, but I just found a rogue candle holder I picked up from Target quite some time ago and while I was at HomeGoods this week, I picked up an inexpensive plate. I probably spent less than $9.00 total. Not too shabby!
I chose a neutral colored plate so I can use the stand anywhere in the house I want, but HomeGoods has oodles of beautiful colored plates starting at just $2.99. Holiday plates are out now, so you could make a cute Thanksgiving and Christmas plate stand. They’d make great hostess, Bunco, office party or teacher gift. Especially if you filled the plate with homemade cookies!
Glass, metal, plastic or wood candle holders can be used as the plate stand. Cake stands, once glued together can be spray painted a solid color for a cohesive look. This could be addictive. Friends and family… you may be looking at your next Christmas gift!
