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! 😀
