How cute are these dainty stands, made to hold just one cupcake each? I love this idea, by reader Jackie at Made by the Mama Monster! Wouldn’t it be fun for a tea party or baby shower? Of course, the concept of gluing one glass thing to another is very versatile, and can be used for many different applications. The dollar store actually has a decent selection of dishes, glasses, and other things that are perfect for this kind of project. If you’re not into displaying individual cupcakes, try this idea to add height to your holiday table, or for a side table of goodies. [link to project instructions]

Project Estimate:

  • Glass candle dish, $1
  • Glass candle stick, $1
  • Glue (E6000 or Gorilla Glue), on hand (you can also use hot glue for a non-permanent display)

Total: $2
