Illuminating Cake Stand



Here's a "bright" idea!  Trash to treasure decor is always fun and inspiring, and this Illuminating Cake Stand from Jamielyn Nye is proof of that!  Made from an old chandelier, this cupcake chandelier stand will be the highlight of any party tablescape!

Illuminating Cake Stand


  • Old chandelier
  • Wire cutters
  • Super glue
  • Wooden craft circles
  • Curvy plate
  • Primer
  • Spray paint
  • Pearl trim or ribbon


  1. First snip off all the wires with wire cutters and unscrew the top. Next, super glue wooden circles onto the legs. Then glue a curvy plate to the top.

  2. Once the glue is set, take the chandelier outside and give it a good coat of primer. Then spray paint it with your choice of color...we used a dusty light pink. Once it is all dry, trim the circles with pearls or ribbon.

In the process of making one now for my oldest daughter's wedding... can't wait to get it done! It has been super easy... I repositioned the sections to create the base and expand the space between levels... painted it white and am just waiting for my hubby to cut me some plywood circles for the top of the candle sections to hold the vintage china plates I'm using!

I had a chandelier just like that and got rid of it (in the trash). Oh well, wish I could hold on to everything because someone always comes up with a wonderful idea!! Love this.
