As I was decorating for a birthday party I am throwing for a friend I realized that I do not own one single cake stand. Naturally I started researching ways to make my own knock off version 🙂 I only had to purchase two items at my local Dollar Tree and using my trusty Hot Glue Gun I was able to make my own stylish, cake stand for under $5! Here are some pictures of the whole process. You will need these three items- 1) a candle stick 2) a silver platter or plate would work 3) a hot glue gun. You could always add a little more to yours by using chalkboard paint, spray paint or regular paint to make your stand match a certain color scheme but as I was going for quick and easy I skipped over any additional aesthetic add ons.
|$1 glass candle stick purchased at Dollar Tree|
|$1 plastic silver platter purchased at Dollar Tree|
|Hot Glue Gun (you can find very cheap ones at your local Michaels)|
|Liberally Apply the Hot Glue first to the Candle Stick|
|Press Candle Stick firmly to Platter and Hold for a good 20 seconds|
|Let glue cool down before using your new stand… and Ta-DAA!|
