Okay so here it is. The cupcake stand tutorial I promised. There really isn’t much too it.
Purchase from the Dollar Tree a small taper candle holder and a bell shape candle holder. Grab an old plate or find one at a thrift store. Round up a knob. I got mine from Hobby Lobby when the knobs were 50% off. Take the screw out of the knob so you have a flat surface. Get some E6000 glue. Glue the knob to the bottom of the bell shape candle holder. Place on a level surface to dry for 24 hours. Glue the taper candle holder to the bottom of the plate and let dry for 24 hours. There you have it! Simple as pie. Or cake. Or a cupcake.
