Dollar Store Tiered Dessert Stand

At Hollins' birthday party, the girls will decorate cupcakes with candies to look like flowers.  The other crafts are fabric covered bulletin boards with felt flower pins.  It is going to be great!
We wanted to display the cupcakes on something cute in the middle of my sisters dining room table.  The original idea was to use boxes with ribbon.  But I thought that creating something a little bit more permanent might be a better option in the long run.  So I created this sweet cupcake stand from plates and candle sticks from the dollar store.

Here are the supplies I started with.  2 dinner plates, a dessert plate and 2 candlesticks all from the dollar store.  It cost me $5 because I had the brushes and paint on hand.

First I painted the flower underneath the plate.

Then I added some border paint.

I went over it lightly with the pale pink paint once the white was dry.

I used tacky glue on the candle stick to adhere it to the plate.

And here is the finished product.  I like the whitewashed look.

Very easy to make and will be great at lots of events!
