{Cupcake Monday} Mini Cupcake Stand Tutorial!

Share To:

Happy Monday everyone! We spotted these adorable Mini Cupcake Stands on HWTM made by Jessica at Modern Moments Designs, we knew we had to share with you! Super adorable and simple to make. Just the way we like crafty projects!
Here is what you need:
1. Mini 3″ Candle Sticks made by Lara Crafts $2.99 for a set of 4
2. 3.25″ Wooden Unfinished Circles $0.29 ea. at JoAnn’s Craft Store
3. Wood Glue (Any brand will do.)
4. Spray Paint (pick a color, any color), Rust-Oleum from Home Depot $3.44 a can
Jessica purchased the Mini Candle Sticks online from New Image Group. They carry this brand of wood at Michael’s and other craft stores, but her local Michael’s didn’t carry this particular item. Take one candle stick and one circle. With a little wood glue, place it around the rim of the candle stick and adhere the circle in the center. Just eyeballed them. You could take the time to measure them, but Jessica didn’t think that was necessary. Let them dry for 24 hours before you handle them. Jessica said that she dropped hers several times and they are all still in tackt. That wood glue is some serious stuff!
Then, Jessica spray painted hers {well, her hubby did}. He did four coats and used just over one can of spray paint. They are fairly covered. Jessica said there were a few areas that could use some extra paint, but she thought it made them look a little distressed and that was perfect.
Let them dry and enjoy!
Seriously, that’s it. So, for just over $1 each, Jessica made 20 adorable cupcake stands. You could adorn them with ribbon, add some fancy paint job, vinyl the tops, etc.
Get creative!
We would love to see photos if you make them!
