DIY: Rustic Cake Stand

If you’re looking for an easy (and inexpensive) way to make a cake stand, we have the project for you. This simple wood stand is perfect for a rustic themed wedding and only requires four materials.


  • Round piece of wood. We used a wood paver from Home Depot.
  • Fabric doilies or any fabric that has a open weaved design (like lace)
  • Spray paint. We’re especially fond of metallic.
  • Wood stain

Step 1: Arrange and Spray

Arrange the doilies on the piece of wood and spray the surface with the spray paint.

Step 2: Remove and Wait

Next, take the doilies off the wood and wait for the surface to be dry to the touch.

Step 3: Stain and Go

Use a rag or foam brush to spread the stain evenly over the surface of the spray painted wood. This will give the wood a more blended and subtle affect.

And, there you go! Ready to make your cake the center of attention?
