Every once in a while I find myself in over my head with work and I realize that I forgot to buy X material. Well, today’s X materials were 3 square shaped cake stands for a photo shoot! I went to 4 different stores to buy stands and found NOTHING! So today I learned that if you can’t find it, build it!
DIY Square Cake Stands
What you will need:
Wooden candle holders to the height you desire
Square shaped plywood pieces. I used 10″x10″ and 8″x8″
Gather your materials
I stuffed my candle holders with cotton to fill the empty void. I took a wild guess that this would help the glue-ing process
Center the candle stick holder and adhere using your glue gun (I used a ruler to make sure I centered it properly)
Paint to your desired color (note that the middle tier has a thicker base than original. I added a 3″ round plywood piece for stability)
Voila! This is a quick way to create an all-wood cake stand. You can also create stands using crystal candle holders with ceramic plates. Your options are endless.
