| | |

This easy DIY Valentine’s candle stand is here to brighten your day. No power tools are needed to create this project in 5 minutes or less!

All you need are a few simple materials with a sprinkle of creativity to make this beautiful stand for a jar or flameless candle.

You can add a touch of handcrafted charm to any space. This stand could also make a great trinket dish by the sink, bathroom, or bedroom side table for your rings.

Another great idea is you don’t have to make it for Valentine’s day. You can substitute the top dish with a plain plate or one with any design. Vintage dishes are also wonderful to use.

This project is perfect for beginners. Now gather your supplies and let’s get to create something beautiful!

Supplies of a 4.5 inch ceramic plate with hearts, glass taper candle holder and E6000 Industrial Adhesive Glue.

We will be using three items to create a beautiful candle stand.

  • Glass taper candle holder
  • 4 ½” ceramic plate (found at Hobby Lobby for 40% off)
  • E6000 Industrial Strength Adhesive Glue
  • Jar candle or 3.5” flameless candle

You can find small seasonal decorative ceramic plates in 4 to 4 1/2 inches at your local Hobby Lobby or Michael’s. The same goes for glass taper candle stick holders or glass votives. You can substitute a glass votive as your base.

Be sure to visit your local thrift store or yard sales too. I am always picking up candle stick holders for .25 cents to $1. You will find plates too or trinket dishes too.

To assemble, I recommend using an industrial strength adhesive glue such as E6000. It will withstand rinsing the candle off with water over time. The E6000 Industrial Strength Adhesive Glue works well with gluing glass and ceramic pieces together. It will be more durable.

You need to add glue around the perimeter of the top of the glass taper candle holder. Next flip over the plate and center the top of the candle holder on the plate. Adjust if necessary.

E6000 starts getting tacky in approximately 2 minutes and begins setup within in approximately 10 minutes. It will be fully cured with 24 hours and ready to use.

You can also place it on the counter by the sink. Antique Candle Co.’s jar candles fit perfect on the DIY Valentine’s Candle Stand.

Remember how I said it could also be used a trinket dish for jewelry. Here I placed it next to the bed on the nightstand.

It is perfect for a bedroom or bathroom vanity to hold jewelry or other small items for hair such as clips or ponytail holders.

for the bedside for jewelry or a candle. Ceramic plate with pink hearts and glass base.

This project was super easy to do. What I also love about this project is that it could make a lovely gift for someone. You can tie a gift tag with a piece of ribbon around the base of it.

It would also look beautiful with decorative soap on it in a bathroom. There are so many great options! I would love to hear some of your options in the comments.

Share your creation with the world! Please tag me in your photos on social media and let me see how you styled your Valentine’s candle stand.

Hope you have a wonderful day, sweet friend!

  1. I love making pedestal stands with candle holders! Dollar Tree has some great round glass “trivets” that work well! Hadn’t thought about topping the holder with holiday-inspired small saucer! Will do so now. Thanks for the idea, Tammy. Sandra
