Tutorial: Magnetic Cake Stands

Today I am sharing a quick and easy variation on the standard DIY cakestand. I grew tried of trying to find a place to store a bulky stand in my small kitchen and also wanted something that could be changed to coordinate with the theme of a party. The result of my brainstorming was this: A magnetic cake stand!

 You will need 4 simple things - 
-a candleholder of any style (green one found at Target dollar bins for $2, glass one from dollar store 2/$1)
- plate- plastic, glass, ceramic, etc. (plate shown is melamine from dollar store)
- flat magnets (purchased at Hobby Lobby for $2.99 with 40% off coupon)
- glue gun (or super glue if you prefer to stick your fingers together rather than burn them like me)
 Total Cost = $6 for two stands

It's as easy as 1,2,3! 
Glue a magnet to the candlestick, glue a magnet to the bottom of the plate, place them together! 

***It is however important to check that you line up the polarity of the magnets so they attach to each other, not separate!***
 Candlestick is now still available to use to hold a candle & the plate can be washed and used as normal!
