I am so excited to share these Dollar Tree Candle Holder DIY Plant Stands with you. I’ve used Dollar Tree glass candle holders in my DIY decor projects before, like when I made a DIY Dollar Tree burner cover tiered tray and also with the DIY chicken coop decor!
This is a super simple DIY and a great way to fill counter space in your kitchen, bathroom, or bedroom!

How to make Dollar Tree Candle Holder DIY Plant Stands
Alright, to start making these adorable DIY plant stand holders you need to mix some black paint with spackling. I used Apple Barrel Black Acrylic Paint and Dollar Tree spackling.
The spackling gives the glass texture and creates a faux concrete finish on the Dollar Tree glass holders. Once you have the paint and spackling mixed together, use a paintbrush to dab the mixture onto the glass candle holders.
Dabbing the paint instead of brushing it is going to create the textured finish. Use the same paint/spackling mixture to cover the ceramic ramekins as well. They are already slightly textured, but you want the texture to match the glass candle holders.
Allow the glass candle holders and ramekins to dry completely before you move on. I painted 3 glass candle holders and two of the ramekins. This way, I can have two plant stands that are different sizes.
Next, mix white paint (I used Apple Barrel Acrylic Paint) and spackling just like you did with the black paint. Get a clean paintbrush and dab the white paint/spackling mixture onto the glass candle holders and ramekins.
Bring it all together
Once the white paint has dried, you can start assembling your DIY plant holders! For the shorter stand, you only need one glass candle holder. Hot glue a painted ramekin to the top of one glass candle holder.
Because you are gluing glass together, I would recommend using E6000 glue as well. It is going to ensure a more secure bond. Just remember, you have to allow 24 hours for the E6000 glue to set and secure.
For the taller plant stand, you’ll glue the other two glass candle holders together. Flip the top one upside down and hot glue the two smaller ends of the glass candle holders together.
Then, glue the second painted ramekin to the top of those glass candle holders. Once the glue is hardened and the pieces are secured together, all you have to do is add in the plants!
I hope you enjoyed these Dollar Tree Candle Holder DIY Plant Stands as much as I did and decide to make them for yourself! I would love to see how yours turn out!
