I need to make cupcakes for my nieces b-day tommorow and I realised I dont have a stand....so I made one! I found a few other tutorials online and mixed and matched some ideas.
I found three different ugly plates in my cupboard,


and some old pots, washed and sanded down a bit,


marked off their placement and chose a design,


cut out my design,


then Gorilla glued my plates and pots together,


then I spray painted them outside, because thankfully we still have warm weather, coated with two coats,


left it all to dry for 24 hrs and voila!!!






The best part of this project is I used all things I had leftover around the house....only down side to that is running out of paint when I was painting the underneath LOL But frankly who cares if the bottom plat isn't painted LOL?!
Hope you all like it!

Thanks!!
I used rustoleum spray paint....once it cures, you can wash it off, if you make a mess on it. So pretty durable.

Looks great!  I love the skulls!  What is the green stuff you used to make reverse stencils?

I just covered the plates in plain old masking tape...nothing fancy. Then removed all of it except my design.
