52 – Episode 5: How to Make Inexpensive Glass Cupcake Stands

You’re going to love making cupcake stands for your parties and household uses!  It’s so easy and fun!  Need a cake plate instead of a cupcake plate?  Easy!  Just use a larger plate.  See all of the 52 craft video series here.

In this video, I use the Lettering Delights “Doilies” file and these adhesives: E-6000and Glue Dots Craft Dots.  I used Un Duto remove the sticky price tags.  Want to make more glass creations using E-6000?  You might enjoy my “How to Make a Hurricane Lamp” video.

Here’s what you’ll learn to make in this video:

  1. Awesome project and super fun video to watch!! I am soooo going to make one of these!!! 🙂

  2. my sister and I have been making these for some time. We find our plates and candle holders at a thrift store just up the street from where she lives. The plates usually run a $1.00 and the candle sticks from $.25 – $1.50…depending who prices them when they come into the store as donations.

  3. Great project! Wouldn’t these make sweet little presents if you etched the person’s monogram or something in the center to cover up any glue goofs? Think I’ll be making some these for sure!

  4. Great project and I have the same problem with my E6000 glue–I think they need to make smaller tubes so we don’t waste it buying new when you can’t squeeze it out.

    1. Hey Sue D,
      I was in Michael’s a few days ago and they had a package of E-6000 with four tiny tubes in it. I ended up buying another big one though because they cost the same. I was probably being an idiot doing that but I did it anyway. LOL!

  5. I liked your video and wondered how easy it is to use the LD lettering for you?
    I bought some but don’t know how to use it. Do I have to save each piece and then try to use it
    in a card program?
    I like the doilies you made. How did you cut them so perfect? Wete these some of the cut it that you put into a machine?
    Thanks for the help.

    1. Hi Deanna!
      I haven’t tried the LD fonts. With the Silhouette Designer Edition software that I’m using, it’s easy to bring in images and files. You can either drag and drop the files or import them using the drop down menu on the top left of the Silhouette software. If you watch this video, I show you how to do that using a Lettering Delights file: How to Print and Cut with the Silhouette Cameo. To make the Doilies in this post, I’m using the Lettering Delights “Doilies” file. I hope that helps!
