This is a fun project for a weekend because it involves shopping AND crafting. What's not to like?!
To make this cupcake stand you will need 3 pretty plates (one small, one medium, one large) and two small glasses such as sherry glasses.
Arrange the plates in size order with the glasses upsideown between the plates. Make sure everything looks as you want it and then glue the glasses to the plates. The best kind of glue you can use for this is a 2 part epoxy glue.
If you want to go all out you can buy the metal fittings for cupcake stands (just search for cake stand fittings on eBay), however you will need an electric drill to make holes in the plates.
I got all of these pieces from local charity shops - in total this cost me about £6. The great thing about this cupcake stand is that you can have it in whatever size and colour you like.
Now I just need to bake some cupcakes to put on it!
