Dollar Store Cupcake Stands
Finally! After two posts about the baby shower cupcake event going on at the Little Brown House, I am going to debut
as promised, my dollar store cupcake stand! I know you have all been awaiting this moment with bated breath..
Whatever that is..
Last year I entered the Dollar Store Contest and came up with a few decor items made
with dollar store purchases. One of them was my burner cover cake stands – you can see them here:
As I was planning my daughters baby shower – I came up with the idea of making cupcakes:
I decided to update the dollar store cake stands and use them as cupcake stands – total cost around $3.50
I found some scrapbook paper I loved at Michaels
I traced around the top of the plate-
When I placed the paper circle on the top, I decided that I needed
to paint the plate so that I would have a clean finish
on the sides and in case any showed through on the top.
So we went outside for a couple of coats of Heaven’s own paint – Heirloom White..
It makes everything better.. really..
Ah – much nicer!
Now I put spray adhesive on the top of the plate, and placed the round paper on top of it.
Then I repeated the process with the next plate
And here is the finished product!
Very pretty indeed!
And the day I made them I got the cupcake toppers and covers I had ordered -
They matched so well!
I may have squealed a little bit!
I have been working on the cupcakes all week, and just finished frosting and filling them today-
So of course I had to dress up the stands for their photo shoot!
I ordered the personalized cupcake toppers and matching wrappers from Julie at
I am so happy with them – I especially love the Welcome Baby Lydia Grace toppers!
So I am about ready to go with the baby shower this Saturday!
If you would like to see the recipes for the cupcakes – you can find them here:
