My own creation
I love to look at recipes at Bakerella. This is a beautiful blog, with a beautiful author, who is very sick right now. She posted these delicious cupcakes on these super cute cupcake stands. I have attached the link. The price is 6 for 39.99. Yikes for me. I wondered if I could make something like them.
So, I have been looking and thinking, and looking and thinking.....I needed something washable, non-toxic, and cute. I finally came up with an idea at a fraction of the cost. A jumbo size cupcake looks the best in mine, but the various ways you could use them for displays is countless. Here is what I did.
I got 8 (4 inch terra cotta bowls) and 16 (1 1/2 inch small terra cotta pots), patio paint, my E-6000, my .39 cent brush and I forgot to include in the picture my high gloss mod podge.
4 inch bowl - .89 cents each
1 1/2 inch pot - .59 cents each x 2
Paint 1.79 x2 = 3.58
Total $2.00 + some change per stand
I took two small pots and glued them together, then I attached it to the bottom of the larger terra cotta bowl.
Next, I put on 2 layers of High Gloss Mod Podge just to seal it all together. I think they turned out really cute. I made a set of 8.
