Making A Three Tiered Cupcake Stand

Standard

My mom recently gave me a bunch of dishes since she got a new set. I couldn’t fit them all in my cupboards and I’ve been wanting to try making a cupcake stand… So, Thanks to Pinterest, I found a tutorial and got to work!

What I used:
3 white plates (in 3 sizes)
2 glass taper candle holders
Clear drying epoxy-type glue
Decorative crystal-style drawer pull

I started with the largest plate and glued on a candle stick in the center (small end down), then I glued on the next size plate and repeated until the 3rd plate was glued. Lastly, I added the crystal drawer pull to decorate the top.

And the final product (prettier in real life):

If you like it, this lovely cupcake stand is available for purchase at The Harvest Market on November 10th from 9-3!

About hobbymamma

I'm a mother of the marvelous Olivia (age 7), the adorable Cooper (almost 3) and Wyatt (6 months). As a busy SAHM (& wife to Tyson aka 'Sarge'), I find myself with irons in many fires. Some of my time is also devoted to voluntary services for various non-profit organizations. The idea for this blog came from something I find myself thinking or saying rather often lately: I have so many interests & hobbies that I don't consider myself 'expert' at any of them. It can be frusterating on occasion, but mostly I find it refreshing and rewarding to enjoy such variety. On this blog I share bits and hints about some of the hobbies I currently enjoy. When considering some of my favorite hobbies - i've discovered that a theme that threads through many of them is green. Not necessarily the color (that too) but 'green practices'. I often find myself thinking, how can I make this more environmentally friendly. What ingredients or products are better for my family and the beautiful planet where we live. I hope you will enjoy reading about some of my hobbies and be inspired to try something new!
