I’m gearing up for a little kiddo party and was in need of something to hold cupcakes. Of course I’m not going to shell out $20+ for a fancy cupcake stand, so I checked Pinterest for ideas!

I found lots of ideas for homemade cupcake holders, like these from Sarah with an H. On my next trip to the Dollar Tree, I was on the lookout for supplies!

I was hoping to find items I could construct the cupcake holder with that wouldn’t need spray painted. I found this 4-pack of pink plastic plates and these little green  cups, which would work well with our “bug party” theme. 🙂

I got out the hot glue gun and in a few minutes I had a cupcake stand! I estimate this would hold two dozen cupcakes, though I actually think we are using it to display cups of dirt dessert instead. I can always spray paint it white at a later date to make it more versatile.

Hope this helps out anyone looking to make a cupcake stand on the cheap!
