DIY Project #1 - Cupcake Stand

Today Im sharing one of my DIY projects I just did last night! As you know, cupcake towers are really popular now! There are tons of different types and styles you can buy that range anywhere from $15 to $200....but my motto is "If it can me made....try to make it!". The key to DIY projects is not having your project look "homemade"... lol. The greatest compliment to a DIY-er is for someone to think you bought what you have actually made yourself!

Since we are having a cake at my wedding, I requested cupcakes (made by my friend, Candace ( for my bridal shower next month! So we needed a cupcake stand for them so of course I volunteered to make it!! I know I shouldnt be doing anything for my own bridal shower but it really does make me happy making stuff! :)

So here's the skinny on today's DIY project:
Project: Cupcake Stand
Materials needed: 3 Styrofoam discs- different sizes, Vase styrofoam (see pic below), spray glue, scissors, knife, fabric of your choice, 1 inch ribbon of your choice, clear tacky glue, rhinestone trim (Most items can be purchased from Michaels or any craft store)
Cost: About $30 (more if you do rhinestone trim)

Pics of some of the materials:
