How To Make Tiered Cupcake Stands

How To Make Tiered Cupcake Stands

Supplies Needed from Lowes or Home Depot:
1. Primer
2. Spray Paint (in desired color scheme)
3. A mask for the fumes


Supplies Needed from Dollar Tree:
1. Silver Serving Trays (can choose round or oval)
2. Crystal Candle Sticks
3. Fix It All Super Glue (NOT Gorilla Glue!)


 Step 1: Spray plates and candle sticks with primer

 Step 2: Once the primer is dry spray platters and candlesticks with desired colors. 
I used Valspar spray paint in a "gloss".
 Let each coat dry before painting another coat, it took about 3 light coats.

Step 4: Glue your candle sticks upside down to the platters so that the widest part of the candle stick supports the platter above it. As you glue each tier apply a weighted object to help aid in a secure bond between the platter and the candlestick.

Step 5: Fill with cupcakes!
