cupcake stand dress-up

July 26, 2013

Ever buy one of those white cardboard cupcake stands?  They are pretty bland.  Basic white.  Cardboard.  But a perfect canvas for some fun.  Now I see the light.  The options are ENDLESS.

Last weekend I helped my friends at Million Grins style their carnival-themed bounce house party and I dressed up said plain cupcake stand to fit.

For this one, a little tissue paper, a little card stock, a little twine…and some hot glue.  There you have it.  Easy, right?

      I know, right!?!? I am already thinking of how to re-use this concept for other upcoming holidays and events!
