DIY Rustic Home Decor Wooden Cake Stand

wooden-cake-stand-tutorialThe look of wood in the home is something I enjoy having in my home. Especially since I live in an apartment it’s hard to do any change physically to the apartment but adding wood accents help make it homier. I’ve seen wooden cake / cupcake stand in magazines and I just needed to give it a try myself. I decided to go to my favorite place Home Depot and pick up a couple of things to make my rustic cupcake stands.


I first got the wooden slice of wood from my local craft store. They always have different size woods at the craft store and I always like visiting time to time to find that once piece that is bigger than the rest.

I used sealer to make sure the wood will not dry out or get molding if food or water get on it. Also the sealer will darkened the wood just a little which I really liked.  I used the sealer all around wood slice.


I got a wooden leg from home depot and sealed it too. They have different varieties but do keep in mind to have something that will keep it balanced.


I attached the wooden leg with wood glue and let it set over night. And now you have your ever own rustic cake stand for you home. I used my cake stand to show off my mother’s day flowers which my little man got for me, he does have good taste.


Stay Crafty!


  1. When you got the wood slice, was it freshly cut or dry already?
    I’ve tried a few things when i get freshly cut, but they always end up cracking when i take them inside in the warmth.
