Rustic 3-Tier {Cupcake} Stand


Rustic elegance. Simple indulgence. Natural beauty. 
These tiered stands are fun to make and easy on the pocketbook...



If you, or someone you know, is cutting down a tree, keep this project in mind! ;) 
Or, you can find wood rounds from craft stores or even through Craigslist or Etsy.

My sister's family needed to take down a tree in their yard, so she gave us some wood rounds (as well as some new stumps for our fire pit - - more on that later). 


Between the tiers, I affixed Dollar Tree candlesticks 
just like I did here, using E6000 adhesive. 


From what I've heard, it's difficult to cut wood rounds completely level 
(think of how relatively thin they are, while being cut with a chainsaw). 

You may need to use a little creativity to make your tiers level. 
I tucked a small piece of folded burlap between one of the 
candlesticks and the wood round to help level one of the tiers.

When wood rounds dry (especially the thinner ones), they often crack. 
If the cracks bother you, use greenery to conceal them...




What are you busy creating (or dreaming of creating) these days?!

Thank you for stopping by!

  3. I love the rustic elegance of this, Julie! You are right, it IS hard to cut wood like that. They have wood slices online at Save-On-Crafts but dang, they're pricey! Yours look really great. And your cupcakes look scrumptious!

    1. It probably also depends on where you live... when we lived in Southern California, I don't think I ever knew someone who cut down a large tree... Here in the Pacific Northwest, we have so many trees - often some of the ones closest to homes need to come down over time. I've also noticed wood rounds are being used for wedding decor so they are sold on Craigslist for a reasonable price - at least near us. Thanks for stopping by!

  4. I pined this because I love the contrast of the rustic with the delicacy of the cupcakes. Great idea.

  5. You are so clever to come up with this idea. I love the contrast between the glass candlesticks and the rustic wood slices. I have seen those wood slices for sale at craft stores too.

    1. Thank you - it's funny looking back, I guess pairing the green branches with the wood wasn't really my idea... God came up with that one! ;)

  10. This is absolutely fabulous! I just had to pop over and check it out from your feature at Cozy Little House. I am in love and now I'm scanning my yard for a tree that looks like it might need to go! ;-) Just kidding. Sort of.
