Super Simple Dessert Stand

I was at good ole Goodwill a few weeks ago and came across the yellow and white ceramic candle holder you see below. It became mine for .59! One gal’s trash will soon
become my treasure with a little help from E-6000.

I took some time looking for the right plate to complete my project. I wanted something fancy but of course cheap. I came across this guy at Ross. He was only $3.00! For $3.59 I had my self a new cake stand, fruit stand, dessert dish, we can just call it a whatever stand (I can place whatever my little heart desires on it).

I’m not going to lie I originally planned on making this as a gift but it sure looks super cute on our island and I’ve been wanting to add a little yellow to our decor.
Hummm maybe I’ll be bad and keep it ;o)
Project Tips*E-6000 is a wonderful glue and it’s dishwasher safe! I purchased mine at Wal-Mart.
*Just follow the directions on the package and you’ll be all good.
*When looking for a candlestick to complete this project you want to be sure it has a flat surface to adhere the plate to; the thicker the surface the more surface area to apply glue.
*After I applied the glue and everything stuck together I placed some weight on the plate while I waited for the glue to dry (I used a juice bottle).


  1. I've made some similar, but not with a plate as large as yours. I love that plate! It's really neat. I'm gonna look for one similar. Thanks for sharing!


  2. I just bought some old brass candlesticks to make mini dessert stands but I LOVE this cake stand and they are so expensive to buy! Thanks for including the tip about what kind of adhesive to use also!!

  3. I love it. I have this very same project on my list of things to do, but I have still not found the right plates for toppers. I have the perfect candle holders for the bottom though, so I guess I am halfway there!

  4. You are sp clever! I MUST stop by the Goodwill tomorrow and see what I can find!

  5. That is beautiful! I blog hop so much that I can never remember where I see things (LOL) but I've been noticing these around. Yours is definitely one of the nicest ones I've seen! :) I'm going to add you to my blog roll. Have a great week!

  6. This is cute! I am determined to make some of these for myself since I'm hosting Christmas at my house.

  7. Super cute idea and I love the plate you chose!

  8. I'm seeing all these fun cake stands now. Makes me want to creat one! Great job!

  9. This is GREAT ! I love the idea because there are so many options ! If I were to want to paint it, what kind of paint should I use ?

  10. Brilliant! I MUST get me some of that glue. :) Thank you for sharing!
