{DIY cupcake stand}

Ever since working on this project, I knew I also wanted to make a tiny version of it; for cupcakes and other little cakes.

My mom found these cute little vases and had the tart forms on hand.
The rest was quick & easy — just the way I like my projects! ;)

What you’ll need:

  • small porcelain tart form
  • small vase
  • hot glue gun

  1. Use the hot glue gun to attach the tart form to the vase. Done! ;)

I’m partying here! ❤

      Thank you so much, Patricia! :)
      They really are so easy to make. If I had more room, I’d probably have a dozen different versions already, hehe.
      Have a great week!
