DIY Cupcake Stands

In the next week I have to make 200 cupcakes for a wedding, so I’ve been looking for a cute way to display them. I came across some cute DIY cupcake stands that I had to share.

Supplies Needed:

2 terra cotta saucers (I used a 7” and a 10” saucer, but you can use any size you like)
2 terra cotta rose pots (The pots I used are 5” and 6” high. You can use any size as long as they are taller than the height of your cupcake and frosting.)
2 yards ribbon (or what ever it takes to make it around the circumference of your saucer)
Decorative or scrap book paper
Acrylic paint
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
Sponge paint brush

I also found steps on making a simple cupcake stand to showcase just one cupcake or dessert at a time.

Supplies Needed:

Candle Stick / Glass
Small Glass Dome (you could use one of those glass candle holders)
Very Strong Glue

*It looks like you could find all of these things at a yard sale or thrift store.

I plan to start my crafting tommorow, I would love to see pictures if you have created your own cupcake stand. ( I have saved the directions via a PDF file, but I don't know how to attach it via the blog. If you want the directions, please send me an email and I will send them too you)

!!! What a fabulous idea! I love DIY stuff! Oh geez my mind's already racing with fun ways to decorate my DIY stand.

What does yours look like? Or do we get to see the unveiling when we see the fantabulous pictures from your 200-cupcake order? Can't wait!

I love cupcake and cake stands but I don't have any room for them. Maybe these would make for good christmas presents. eeee so excited now.

I don't think my previous comment posted. Anyways. I'm excited to try these and give them away as gifts for christmas possibly. I love cake stands and cupcake stands but I don't ever have the room for them.

This is Chandice from glutenfreefrenzy.com thanks for the comment. I absolutely LOVE coconut oil. I can't even begin to tell you the benefits of it and why it is so great. There is only a very slight taste of the coconut oil, nothing that all my friends don't just love when they eat over. Even in savory dishes it is so great. You can always look at www.coconutoil.com for all the great benefits. Be sure to visit again! We do two giveaways every month of our favorite products!!!
