"C" is for Cupcake Stand

Build: diy cupcake stand


It's Friday and time to share another handmade holiday diy gift build with plans from Ana White.


Today we have a cupcake stand:


Just with a simple change of trim moulding and finish you can tailor this build exactly as you like:

For the white look I used scalloped moulding purchased from Michaels:


This cupcake stand was inspired by Pottery Barn Kids Tiered Cake Stand:




Of course you can diy felt cupcakes for a complete kids play gift:


The scalloped moulding gives the cupcake stand just the right amount of girly flare:


But I also love the rustic nature of the stained version:



How to build a cupcake stand:

1. Follow Ana's plans and cut your lumber.


2. Assemble:


3. Cut moulding pieces with a 45 degree bevel on both ends:


Then attach with glue and finish nails:


You want your corners to come to a 90 degree angle, after you attach the first piece of moulding the corner should look like this:


Now line up your next piece of moulding and cut to fit.

4. Prime and paint high gloss white, spray paint is best for this project.
