Cardboard Cupcake stand (last minute party project)
Make a recycled DIY cardboard cupcake stand for displaying cupcakes in a party. This is a great idea for making a cupcake stand that can be matched with your party theme. And also be disposed after use. Easy to make and very inexpensive. Actually it will cost you nothing, as it is totally made of things you can find around the house.
Sometimes at parties accidents happen and you don’t want to let go of a perfectly planned party getting a little out of hands. In such situations you need to have a quick backup plan. Just like this cupcake stand made out of cardboard and crepe paper.
Cardboard Cupcake Stand
This is a really easy and totally a dollar project.
You will need:
cardboard, disposable glasses, crepe paper, strong glue and a very good glue stick
Cut three pieces of cardboard, each a little smaller than the last one. In my project, I cut three different sizes of rectangle. I then wrapped the cardboard with crepe paper, gluing it at the center, around the edges and taping at the ends. It is important to stick the crepe paper firmly to the cardboard, else the cupcakes weight will not be tolerated on the second dish.
While the glue was drying, I stuck stars on the disposable glasses for fun and finally using super glue positioned them between the cardboard to act as holders. Place a heavy book on the top while the glue dries for best results.
And that’s it. Your done in 15 minutes.
Have a last minute cupcake stand ready to save your party and enjoy!
