DIY $10 Cupcake Stands {Tutorial}

DIY Cupcake Stand

For the monkey themed baby shower that I hosted at my house, I wanted an inexpensive cake stand to add height to the table and put cupcakes on. I finally figured out this inexpensive way to make my own!

I headed to the dollar store to look for stovetop covers and candlesticks. I couldn’t find any stovetop covers there but I did find some pizza pans. Of course they only offered one size. I grabbed one and 4 candlestick holders for $5. I then went to Walmart and found some white stovetop covers for about $5. Total cost was $10 (or technically $9 because I didn’t need one candlestick holder!)


The stovetop covers were already white but the pizza pan and candlestick holders needed a quick coat of white spray paint.

I liked the look of the candlestick holders upside down. I then grabbed some super glue and glued them all together.
