One of the easiest projects I've done recently is the perfect addition to my baking and sharing obsession. Not only do I love cooking, but also I enjoy the presentation of it, sometimes even more.
For a step-by-step guide: Make It: DIY Cupcake Stand
This simple – and cheap – cupcake stand is completely customizable. You can create and recreate one or more for any given occasion.
You only need a few supplies, some old plates and a place to get dirty. You'll be using spray paint, so make sure you are in a well-ventilated area, preferably outdoors.
DIY Cupcake or Hors D'oeuvres Stand
What you'll need:
- 3 old plates, different sizes – small, medium and large
- 2 old 4-6 inch candlesticks
- E-6000 epoxy or glue gun with glue sticks
- 2-3 colors of spray paint
- Tape, paper doilies or other materials for stencils
For a step-by-step guide:
Make sure your plates and candlesticks are clean.
Spray paint a base coat to your individual style and let dry.
Lay out your design and spray paint over with your second and/or third colors.
I used some stencils with painter's tape and cut-outs to create my own design.
You can also use paper doilies, as well.
Glue a candlestick to the center of your largest plate.
Glue your middle-sized plate on top of this candlestick.
Repeat with your next candlestick and the last, smallest plate on top.
Let dry – overnight if you are using E-6000.
Once the adhesive is dry, your new stand is ready to use!
