How to make a cake plate cheap

So, a few months back I wanted to give my sister in law a little shower. This was going to be her 2 daughter, with 2 boys in between the girls. It had been 8 years since she had a baby girl and girl things have just gotten way more cute since then. So, a shower was a must! 

My sister in law didn't know about the shower and I usually use her cake stand and cupcakes stands if I ever need them. I didn't want to pay a bunch of money for a shabby chic looking cake stand and cupcake holder.

So I channeled my inner "thrifty person" and I made THREE stands for $5!!!

Get three plates that are flat or almost flat on the bottom. 

Get three crystal candlesticks and use E6000 to glue the top of the candlestick to the bottom of the plates and VIOLA... you have cake stands/ cupcakes stands for almost nothing!
