Easy $2 DIY Cupcake Stand

on December 12, 2016

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 DIY cupcake stand 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 did have to glue one of the cups two times to get it to hold, so don’t shy away from using plenty of glue.

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 create a DIY cupcake stand on the cheap!
