Cupcake Stands…

I wanted to quickly show you how 
I made those lovely cupcake stands that you
saw in my last post {click here to see}.
They were very simple to make & better
yet, very affordable…


Yup, that’s right, I made them out of martini glasses
& dinner plates from the dollar store.
You can use any glasses {Wine, Martini, exd}

I then spray painted the plates & the glasses
with Catalina Mist from Krylon
{I found it at Michael’s craft store}
After the paint dried I glued the bottom of the glass
to the bottom of the plate.
{So the rim of the glass is the base of the cupcake stand}
You can use any glue, I chose to use hot glue
& it has held up great.

I chose to use all the same size glasses & plates,
but you can switch it up for variety.

For a little more added touch of lovely I added a small
doily banner to tie all of the cupcake stands together.
Not that these amazing cupcakes from Stir it up needed to 
be more lovely then they already are…

I love how the cake stands made the cupcakes
a great centerpiece for the baby shower… they turned out awesome
& I can’t wait to use them again.

Have you made cake stands before?
What materials did you use?
I would love to see them…
Go link them on the Liz Marie Blog Facebook page.
I hope you are having a great week…
I will be back with a few more tutorials from the baby shower
 stay tuned…
