Three Tier Cupcake Stand – DIY Dollar Tree Crafts

Three Tier Cupcake Stand – DIY Dollar Tree Crafts

Cake stands are such a wonderful way for serving up cupcakes and display for outdoor wedding or party bite size goodies. A few weeks ago, one of the member of our group from DIY Dollar Tree Crafts from Facebook asked about an idea on how to make one so I decided to create one for myself and share the steps I did. All you need is to grab some plates and candle holders from any thrift stores or dollar stores as they’re a great source of supplies, so you could make your own out of $5 it’s totally up to you if you want to spend more and add more style to it too!

Below are the supplies I used:

3 Metal Plates and I also used a spray paint to add color
2 Candle Stick Holders and an old cookie platter holder
A glue E600 which was not bought from the Dollar Tree store, I got them from Michaels and you can use any glue for as long as it works with the type of material you decide to use.


You may decide to add some design to your plate if you like, I’ve used a metallic finish to spray paint the plate and top handle.

I used a maskin tape to cover the middle part and scotch tape to cover the edge part. I also used an X-acto blade to cut it into a round shape to leave just the part of the rim that I want to spray paint it with.

I spray painted the holder around as well by hanging it with a tie.

Next, I start by washing up the plates and candle stick holders first to get rid of dust so the glue adheres to it well.
I apply the glue along the bottom rim of the candle stick holder to bond it with the bottom plate, make sure to stick it to the center of the plate as you want it as even as possible and you may push down on it for a few seconds to make sure it lays flat to the plate.

Do the same thing with the 2nd and 3rd tier plate to bond the top and bottom altogether.

Leave for about an hour or a couple of hours to dry, it depends on the type of glue you’ve used.

Finally, wash up your plates and start using it!

The good thing about using a candle stick holder as support is that you don’t necessarily need to drill a hole into your plates, you just have to use a strong glue to bond it with any plates you’d like to use and as for me e600 is the best for this project!

You can use your 3-tiered stand for organizing your accessories, makeups, pharmacy bottles or whatever you want to use it for. It’s also great for parties like baby shower, bridal shower, birthdays and just about any party!  It’s very cost effective so you can put as many as you like on your guest tables and it’s super cute!
