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!
