DIY Cupcake Stand by Amy & Chris

As you all know we are planning a baby shower for a friend and I though it would be a cute idea to have cupcakes along with the cake. I decided to make my own cupcake stand. I purchased all the materials from Michaels which includes: 2 chargers and a candle stick all were on sale!
I spray painted the small charger with left over spray paint I had around the house.
Next I used my hot glue gun and glued everything together. I wanted to keep the cupcake stand simple and not customized it specifically to the shower because I want to be able to use it again. I can also spray paint it another color if I choose so.

The total project cost around $5.
Thanks for stopping by!
