C'mon! I love me some Johnny Flynn!!
This blue crystal cupcake stand was perfect for my nephew Ryker's 2nd birthday party. It was ABC themed with bright colors and in lieu of a traditional cake we made cute cupcakes with ABC chocolate molds on the top. We realized that we didn't have a place to display the 48 cupcakes so to the $0.99 store we went!
Of course we kind of had an idea as to how to make a cupcake/cake stand as we are avid Pinterest followers and a crafty friend of ours had made a stand using bowls and plates a few years ago. We picked up these colorful vases for....wait for it....$0.99!
Next we picked up these plastic "crystal" patterned plates. We chose a large 11" plate to serve as the base to our cupcake stand and a smaller 9" plate to be the top. Both plastic plates were also only $0.99.
We used hot glue to attach the plates to the vases and Voila! A beautiful cupcake stand for a measly $2.97 plus tax. I don't know if you can beat that price!
