DIY Mini Jewelry/Dessert Stands

Ever wonder what a candle holder is good for? Besides holding candles, obviously. Well, keep reading on…

mds2They make very elegant, unique, and whimsical mini dessert stands! WAYYY better than store bought!

I bejeweled the Boston creme pie doughnut with some pink sugar pearls and gold sparkly sprinkles.

mds5All you need are some random candle holders, mini glass plates, and a tube of super glue. Here’s how to in 4 easy peasy steps-

1. Apply super glue to the opening rim of the candle holder 2. center the plate to the rim of the candle holder and press firmly to adhere the two surfaces 3. place a few hardcover books on top of the plate (the pressure + weight of the books will prevent the two surfaces from separating while drying) 4. allow to dry overnight

Yes! It’s that simple.

mds4And it’s only 99 cents! You’d flip if I told you that I bought the candle holders and plates at the thrift store and only at 49 cents to $1.99/each! I made two beautiful stands for LESS than $5, total. Yes, I DID!

mdsI have a TON of accessories but lack of accessory storage space. This diy dessert stand can also double as a jewelry stand. What an eye-pleasing and convenient way to organize my jewels!

Imagine all the combination possibilities of candle holders and plates. Each stand uniquely made by you. Hope you’ll give this project a try!

  1. This is so cute!!! I can’t wait to explore your blog and steal some ideas. Of course I will post back to you cause your pictures are great and mine… well, are not! ;-)

  2. I love it!! You can actually make really great full-sized cake stands doing that same thing if you get wide candle sticks with a sturdy base!

  3. these are beautiful. I’m thinking of trying this out too. Thanks for following me. Hope you enjoy my stuff as much as I am enjoying yours :)

    Nice! Thank you for sharing and stopping by my blog! :)

  5. You got me hooked on this project. I visited a number of antique shops this weekend and purchased some beautiful saucers and inexpensive brass candleholders. Now I have a great place for my bracelets.

  7. This is a fabulous idea! I actually have candlesticks that I was about to donate to Goodwill. Looks like I’ll be keeping them!

    This is so pretty I had to share the love. Candle holders, plates and a blob of glue. Will look lovely on your dresser with your pretty accessories in.
    Love and plates,

  9. I use a standing candleabra to hold my jewelry. It is great for holding long neclaces, bracelets, earrings and rings…I am sure you can pick one up at the thrift store on your next trip.
