Today we’re going to make a simple triple tier cake stand!

DIY Triple Tier Cake Stand

Craft a DIY triple tier cake stand, perfect for mini cakes, cupcakes doughnuts and more! This very simple to make with wood slices, cost only $20 to create!Materials:
3 wood slices: one large, medium and small (I bought these, but I recommend going to the craft store to get a better deal and to make sure the sizing is right)
2 candle sticks (try to use candle sticks that have both a wide bottom and top for stability)
E6000 glue
Natural coffee stain

Stain your candle sticks a few days ahead of time if you want to stain them, make sure you give them enough time to dry before assembling your cake stand. Starting with the largest wood slice (this will be the bottom of the cake stand), put a nice dollop of E6000 on the bottom of one of your candle sticks don’t use too much glue as you don’t want it to goosh out past the candle stick. Press the candle stick into the center of the large wood slice and allow to dry for a couple of hours. Once the glue has dried add glue around the top of the candle stick and center the medium wood slice onto the candle stick and press down. Allow to dry for a couple of hours and continue on with the last candle stick and wood slice.

Note: Make sure that the two candle sticks are fairly centered with each other so they don’t look wonky. I did not do this, but you can add a food safe sealer to prevent oil stains etc. If your candle stick bases and tops are nice and wide, it will be sturdy, if they’re a little narrow make sure to only put lightweight treats on it to prevent damage.

I spent about $20 total (they were half off) for the materials minus the glue which I already had. I love the simplicity of this cake stand and of course how simple it was to make!

    I love this, brilliant idea! You are so creative! I could use a stand myself but I’m not sure I’ve got the skills. Yours is so pretty to look at!

    $20.00 is not bad at all. My family thinks that I have more cake stands than I need but I can always make room for one more!
