How To Create Your Own Glass Cupcake Stands

How To Create Your Own Glass Cupcake Stands

I don’t know why I am obsessed with individual cupcake stands.  They are just the cutest things ever!  Have you ever thought of making your own for just a couple of dollars each?  Just imagine how cute these glass cupcake stands would be at a family gathering or even a small wedding.

I just love them and want to show you how I created them.  Keep reading…or just scroll down the video.  LOL!

These are from Hobby Lobby.  I got them when all of their glass candle holder products were 50% off.  They go on sale about every 2 – 3 weeks so watch for them.  They are very budget friendly when they are half off.

Step 1:

Paint the base of your cupcake stand.  I used some colors I already had in my garage.  This pretty green was used on my vintage style fan and I had used the blue on my plant stand last summer.   They got 2 coats of paint.  Then I turned them upside down and sprayed them again.

When they were completely dry I used the sanding block to distress them a bit.

Step 2:

Add the glass top.  I love the size of these and the clear glass.  They have similar ones at the Dollar Tree but they have bumps on them.  I used them for these fun farmhouse cupcake stands.  This time I wanted a smooth surface.  These were perfect.

So now, not only do the cupcakes look scrumptious but the glass cupcake stands are adorable too.

There are so many ways to make these.  If you don’t like the idea of painting you can purchase the “bottom” parts in so many different colors, sizes, and shapes.  The sky would be the limit.

Now if you are a video person, I have created a short video for making these cuties.

I love your cupcake stands, Michelle. They are the cutest way to house your cupcakes. I love the colors you chose too. Totally shabby chic and calling my name!

Thank you Carolann. I do love the shabby chic look. I am glad you like them. I really want to make more so I have enough to use when the whole family is home.

Both of these turned out so pretty! I have seen the cake stands before, but haven't seen a cupcake stand before. I love how they both turned out, but my favorite is the one made with the votive. I haven't seen any stands made like that before, I've only seen them made with the tapers.

Hi Linda! Thanks so much. I do love them and they are so easy to make. There are so many cute, already colored votive holders too. I had a hard time deciding which one to use. Thanks for sharing too. I really appreciate it.
