While looking up supplies on the Dollar Tree website, I found a project sheet on how to make a Cupcake Stand. If you click the link, they show a Halloween cupcake stand. I decided to make a standard version. I wanted one where I can use it for any occasion or Holiday. So I got my supplies from the Dollar Tree, which only cost $4 and started my project. I used a hot glue gun to attach the candle holder to the plate. Glass glue would also work. I firmly pressed the plate onto the candle holder for about 20 seconds to make sure it was secure. This project took about 10 minutes total. I let the stand dry overnight before I put anything on it, just to be safe. I tested it with the Halloween cupcakes I made and it worked perfect. I love how it turned out. One of these days I might paint it, but for now I really like the clear glass. Just another reason to love the Dollar Tree and their easy projects!

If you wanted you could stop here and use this for a stand
I continued the 2nd layer using the same process with my hot glue gun
After I glued the 2nd candlestick holder onto the top of the glass plate
