Dollar Store Cake Stand

Do you have a Dollar Tree where you live? I'm in love with mine. They have so many great things for a whopping buck! And they are always changing their stock so it pays to visit there often. If you've never been, go, run, get yourself inside one!

I've seen a bazillion DIY cake stand/cupcake stand/jewelry stand/whatever you want to call them all over the web, so this idea is definitely not original. But, I wanted to make one anyway.

I found this glass at my local Dollar Tree...

 and this plate...

{on a side note....I'm not sure why those 2 pictures suck so much. Maybe because I took them at night. Maybe because I took them 2 months ago. Maybe I never looked at them before today. Oops, my apologies}

Back to the project here...what do you do with these 2 things? Glue them together with E6000 glue. Let them dry overnight. Prime and paint.

I already had the glue and paint so I just paid for the plate and glass. Not bad for a $2 craft eh?

I've been kinda addicted to have a centerpiece on my kitchen island. Mr. Perfect isn't as thrilled because it usually involves some kind of sugary treat and let's face it...men have no self control...he can't walk by it and not eat something. 


Pin It!


  1. I've wanted to make one of these! I'm just nervous about the paint. (I'm such a worry wart, it's embarrassing). Is there a certain kind to buy that's safe to eat off of?

    Yours turned out SOO cute. I love the purple and the green apples set it off so nicely.

  2. So cute! I'm trying to catch up on blogs and had forgotten how much I love reading yours :) Keep up the good work!

  3. Love the stand!! I would love it if you linked up at my party going on now! (It's my very first one!!)


  4. Thanks for linking up to my party at Jillify It!


  5. Hi! What kind of paint did you use and primer! I love how perfect the paint looks. You are very very talented!

    1. I used regular kilz spray primer. And the color is Ace (from Westlake Hardware Stores) Premium Enamel in Plum Gloss. Thanks so much!
