DIY Cake Stands

This post may contain affiliate links.

Here are some ideas for DIY cakes stands that you can make yourself.  If you need a quick and easy way to display a cake, cupcakes, or other treats for a party, check out how to make a cake stand of your very own.

Let’s start with my favorite, this amazing cake stand and dome combo from A Beautiful Mess.  I love the look of these glass hurricanes — turned upside down, of course — to make these beautiful domes.  So cute.  Make sure that the diameter of your wooden circle is larger than the diameter of your glass dome!

If you want to make these yourself, all you will need is a glass hurricane candle holder, a circular wooden plaque, and a wooden ball to glue on as the knob.

Check out the tutorial on A Beautiful Mess for more instructions.



Next up is a sweet DIY wooden cake stand in a modern farmhouse style.  This DIY cake stand is from Making it in the Mountains — and it’s so cute!  The supplies list for this project is pretty short, all you’ll need is a wooden plaque, and a chunky wood candle holder.

Make sure to check out the full tutorial for the instructions.

Check out this sweet white cakestand made with materials purchased for just a few dollars.  If you have some spare bowls and plates — or love to shop at your local thrift store for bowls and plates — you can make this white cake stand for just a few bucks! With a single plate and bowl, you can make a one-of-a-kind cake stand for displaying cakes, cupcakes, or to give as a gift.

If you aren’t into thrifting, the combo I’ve linked below would make the sweetest mini cupcake stand.
