Anywhoo, as I mentioned in the previous post, I am so inspired by the party thrown by the ladies on Hostess blog. Like the banner, once I saw the cupcake stand I wanted to make one of my own! So, I made my very own version of it. I love how Suess-y it came out!
I looked up how much these cardboard cupcake stands cost online but they were expensive. Yikes you might as well get a real one. Then, as I was browsing through Joann's I saw that they were selling them for $6 and that is enough of a deal for me. With a 50% off coupon I bought it.
It comes in a kit like this, plain-boring-dull and ready for some imagination! It is actually pretty easy to put together as long as you read the directions.
I used some left over paper from the banner I made, and a roll of wired ribbon I got at Michaels for $1!!!! It is Christmas ribbon, 10 yards $8 bucks, and was on clearance for $1!! It made my day. I made one of these cute bows.... and then I couldn't stop.
I at first only attached one row of bows going top to bottom but I went a little wild and just put them everywhere. It just didn't look Suess-y enough with only three bows. I can't wait to see how the cupcake stands hold up and if it performs well, I will be decorating more in the future. It was so much fun.
