I’m Lovin’ It – diy Cupcake Stands


If you know me at all, you know I LOVE cupcakes!  and I’m obsessed with anything cupcake! Especially cupcake stands, and right now I’m lovin’ all of the tutorials I’m finding on making your own cupcake stand.

DIY Cupcake Stands

1. Bee In Our Bonnet – made from plywood, pine and some gorgeous turquoise paint

2.  Modern Moments Designs –  super cute mini cupcake stands with super-duper-quick-and-easy instructions so you can learn how to make them too!

3.TidyMom –  how to find a ‘trash’ and make it a ‘treasure’

4.  Joy’s Hope – A rainbow of Dollar Tree goodness!  These are not food safe, but would be perfect for cupcakes in cupcake liners, doilies or scrapbook papers underneath the food.

5.  Tatertots and Jello – Use white plates and a glass candlestick from the Dollar Store, then stencil and paint using Plaid’s Enamel Paint then bake in oven to set paint.
6.  Creative Abubot –  Whether for fake cupcakes or real cupcakes, these plastic pedestals are perfect to display them!
7.  Once Wed –  A stack-able cake or cupcake stand made out of basic terracotta plates and saucers.
8.  Skip to My Lou –  An easy way to make a tiered serving tray that can easily be interchanged with different plastic plates and bowls.


I made a cupcake stand a while back using a candle pedestal and cheese sever, like Amanda showed us in her guest post on Trash to Treasure last summer

    So creative! I could have used some of these ideas a few weeks ago for my son’s birthday party.

    Last week someone asked my 14yo daughter what she wants to be when she grows up and she said with a total straight face, “Own a Cupcake Bakery.” Maybe we’ve been watching too many cupcake shows lately:) Saturday she and her friend are setting up a cupcake stand at our community yard sale. Can’t wait to see how it turns out! Might just have to whip up a cupcake stand or two for her. Thanks for hosting!

      My daughter did it! She actually pulled off a fabulous cupcake stand (the for sale type not the holds cupcakes type)! I linked up my post about it. Thanks again. Love your blog!

    I love cupcakes. They’d better not ever go away either! These stands are great. Stop by and follow when you have a chance. You’ll see I’m pretty tidy too! And i’ve got some great recipes to share.

    All of the stands are so lovely and it’s nice to know that they are neither difficult nor expensive to make. Now…just to make some and then find a place to store them all. LOL

    Thanks for hosting Cheryl.

    Oh . M . Gee………….
    I have finally found a girl after my own heart!!
    a-partner in crime, perhaps… errr scuse me, I mean in Cupcakes! – lol.
    The reason I even started a blog, was to have it be about delish lil’ cuppies.
    and now to find this blog post on cupcake stands (which can be outrageously expensive to purchase).
    well suffice it to say –> I Am in ‘HEAVEN’……….
    Thank-you, thank-you & THANK-YOU for posting all these totally, completely AWESOME examples, pics, tutorials and LINKS!!
    *looks like this mama is goin be a busy-busy lil gal this weekend ;}
    I am Truly Inspired.
