Dollar store cake stand

Happy 2016!

I can’t wait to publish my first post of the year and share a fun project with you all 🙂

So, for my mini celebration cake I wanted a suitable size cake stand and decided to DIY. Pinterest has lot of ideas and the most favorite is the dollar tree cake stand. It is super easy and costs $2.


I love how you can use any size plate you desire and make a perfect stand.

To make this cutie – all you need is a glass candle stick, glass plate and glue.

To glue the pieces E-6000 is the perfect one!

It really bonds well and does a better work than many other strong glues 🙂

Just apply a ring of glue on top of the candle stick, center it and place the plate on top and press it firmly.

Let it dry overnight and you  have an awesome little cake stand ready to use 🙂

I love how it turned and since they are inexpensive you can have them in multiple sizes 🙂


Note : The mini Wilton cake tins are from here and followed this easy and quick recipe.

Hi, I am very delighted that you stopped by! Welcome to Creative ME!!! I 'm a wife to an amazing hubby and recently mother to an adorable little munchkin :-), an Asian(Indian) native, nomad for a while and now currently @Portland, Oregan. Recently relocated from The Grand Canyon State and still adjusting to the gloomy weather here... When we first we moved to US(2012) ,our first 2 months of accommodation was in a hotel and that's when everything started. You must be wondering HOW? I was introduced to HGTV and started reading craft blogs. Ohh yes, PINTERST toooo and that is my fav! Well, inspired from these places, I started to DIY on budget and decorate our home. Whenever I posted pics of my projects on Facebook, everyone loved and gave many positive comments. Some of them also said I should not look for a job, instead start a blog or sell some of my projects ;) They thought I was doing something very cool!! That was a great motivation and I decided to tickle my creative senses to tame the stress monster ;-) And then, one day here is my blog , where I share my ideas and projects with friends, family and all other aspiring DIY-er's :) And if you like my blog, please come back and also don't forget to tell your friends :) Lastly, if you have a fun and functional craft or project or even a simple recipe I want to hear….please let me know and I can feature, down the line we will make Creative ME to WE..;)
