Lesson 17- Cupcake Stand

I love cupcakes. Almost as much as I love my husband. It's so close that instead of a traditional wedding cake we had cupcakes. My FIL built a stand that looked like a wedding cake and one of my super friends, A made over a 100 cupcakes for us. People love us! Anyways, as much as I love the stand we had at our wedding, it isn't practical for most other social gatherings. Mainly, cause it's a beast!

I was on a mission to have one a little more party friendly. And that mission took me to Goodwill. I'm a relatively new patron of Goodwill thanks to my MIL. I found the supplies needed to make my cupcake stand!

Supplies:
* 2 white bud vases ($0.69 each!)
* 3 white plates ($2.99 for the set)

* Gorilla glue (purchased at Wal-Mart)


Directions:
- glue bottom of vase to center of plate
- let dry according to glue instructions
- glue top of vase to center bottom of second plate
- let dry according to glue instructions
- glue bottom of second vase to center of second plate
- let dry according to glue instructions
- glue top of second vase to center bottom of third plate
- let dry according to glue instructions



There's the finished product. All for the super low price of $4.37! Not bad when they go much more at Target or Bed Bath & Beyond.

And it looks so much prettier with cupcakes on it!
