INSPIRE: DIY Cake Stands - Top 12 Tutorials!

Although there are some GORGEOUS cake stands out there to purchase, it can become a quite costly investment. I am not sure about everyone else, but I prefer not to use the same one over and over again for every dessert table, I like lots of party styling options! Plus, not just any cake stand goes with every parties' style. Sometimes I need a cake stand that is big or small, short or tall, round or square, neutral or bright, elegant or maybe even whimsical! Recently, especially on Pinterest, I have noticed more and more bloggers are sharing Do-It-Yourself Cake Stand Tutorials. These are my favorite top 12 tutorials because they are creative, simple, easy, affordable and above all... ADORABLE! 

Below are just images of the DIY cake stands, click on the web links under each photo to view their own individual step-by-step instructions. Kudos to all that were kind enough to share their DIY cake stand projects!

These five photos BELOW are the results of my own DIY Cake Stand which I created by glueing (E 6000 Glue) a large melamine plate on top of a ceramic candle stick then glued an upside-down small melamine plate on bottom. (All my supplies were from Target stores.)
