Colorful Tiered Trays : These are made by painting cheap dollar store trays and candlesticks with spray primer and spray paint then assembling with strong glue.
Individual Cupcake Stands : Mini-cupcake stands are made with candle sticks, unfinished wooden circles, wood glue and spray paint.
Tiered : Thrifted melamine or ceramic plates can be changed to suit the party theme, made with a decorative drawer pull and allthread, bolt and washer, paint, candlestick and a drill.
Repurposed : Use thrifted pieces such as plates, vases, pedestal bowls, candlesticks, etc., to make your own stands (assembled with epoxy).
Mirror Tile : You’ll need mirrored tiles in graduated sizes, glass candlesticks and E6000 glue to make this project.
