DIY Cupcake Stand

Hello Ladies! After not finding the right cupcake stand, I decided to make one on my own! Home Goods, TJ Maxx and Marshalls always seem to have great assorted plates and platters. I found the two blue plates used here in clearance! For the divider piece, I found two glass dessert cups. Now, granted, we will have about 120 cupcakes and they won't all fit on this but I wanted to have just one dish to hold about 20 and the others will be on different platters around this one. It was easy to do and only took about twenty minutes!

    Love it - looks so pretty!

    Maybe you could use museum putty (or something clear for the top level) to make sure the pieces don't shift and slide.

    Thanks! I used 5 minute Epoxy for ceramics - this stuff really does dry in 5 minutes. They have been glued for about an hour now and those dishes aren't budging! LOL

    Wow, great! Can't see the epoxy AT ALL, and yes, it will surely hold.
