I love to borrow items; it makes no sense for all of us to have all of the items. But I also think if we use a certain item over and over, we have the space for it and it’s within our budget, it might be wise to invest in the item ourselves.
In this case I am talking cupcake stands.
I use one. Often. Time for me to have my own. And a plus: this is something I can make.
First step: head to Dollar General and find something that would work to put cupcakes on.
I ended up with a pizza pan, two stove top burner covers, and two vases.
I glued them together like so:
And then spray painted and sealed them with paint and sealer I already had on hand. The project cost me about $10.
It worked perfectly!
It’s not high end, but it gets the job done and I think it looks pretty cute!
Is there something you borrow all of the time?
