Cake/Cupcake Stands

We were at our local thrift store and came across these fun multicolored candlesticks.  When we saw them we knew we had to have 'em.  They were just way to fun to pass up.  We knew right away that they were going to be turned into cake stands.  Can't you just imagine these set out on your Easter table, at a baby shower or at a birthday party!!!  The possibilities are endless!!!

So Lets Create!!!
This creAcipe will begin with the following items:

Candlestick               Hot Glue Gun
Platter                        Hot Glue Sticks

Step 1:  Preheat your hot glue gun!

Step 2:  While hot glue heating it is prep time.
-Wash and Dry your candlestick and platter to ensuring that they are completely clean and dry.

Step 3:  It is time to assemble! 

*Take the superglue and glue around the outside edge of the candlestick

*Next, take the glue gun, pull the trigger, and let the glue come flowin’ out!!!  Put a good amount on the top of the candlestick.

*Take the platter and place on top of the candlestick.  Apply pressure for about 15-30 seconds.

*Carefully flip over and apply pressure.  If needed place a heavy book on top for about 20 mins.

There you have it!  A quick, simple, and inexpensive craft that you can use to WOW up your table!!!

You can find the creAcipe card for this project here.


  1. I LOVE these! They are so cute. Gorilla glue would also work really well, but it costs more and takes longer to cure. I'm gonna be on the lookout for some candlesticks!!!

  2. Love Love Love!! These are so super cute and fun! Loving the colors of the holders!!

  3. Love this idea!! So cute and love the colors!!
