DIY Cupcake stand

Wouldn’t it be fun to have a bunch of cupcakes instead of one big wedding cake? I found some candle holders at the dollar store and with a little makeover thought it’d be fun to place one at each guest’s table as a favor and as dessert. Just leave some cute boxes at the door so as they leave they can box it up. Bingo!

Materials: gold spray paint, pink glitter, glue that adheres to glass (I used a universal glue found here in Denmark), spray mount, glass candlestick, and glass candle holder.

Step 1: put some glue around the rim of the candlestick.

Step 2: Attach the holder to the candlestick. Wait 24 hours while the glue dries.

Step 3: Spray the cupcake stand gold. Wait 24 hours.

Step 4: With the spray mount, spray about 3″ of the perimeter of the stand.

Step 5: Quickly after, pour the glitter onto the stand. Use a piece of cardboard underneath to capture the glitter. Repeat until the edge is filled.

Voila!

    Using candle holders for serving pieces is brilliant. Can you imagine a table with lots of these in different heights with the gold and glitter? I love this!
