I thought about it, but it’s a lot of work and $$$. I ended up just buying a cardboard stand and painting it.

I have not made pedestals before, but I have made a cupcake tower.

Here is mine made of different sizes of wood painted white, and in between the boards are actually canned food that I wrapped in white fabric. 🙂

You can find cheap cardboard cupcake towers for like $25 on the internet that you can put together and decorate yourself. I have it bookmarked somewhere. Looking for it now.

I made ours – we are having 3 cupcake towers. I think they cost me approx $6-8 a piece and they fit our book theme! Plus, since we made them they mean a lot to us.

Wow, some great ideas in this thread. 

@rickhurst35:  I would never have guessed they were cans!

I’m having 2, 6 foot tables full of mismatched china tiered cupcake stands that I put together for our cupcakes, mini cupcakes, cakepops, cookies  and a 150 piece macaron bar. I decorated every cupcake liner. I actually have a macaron menu. I can hardly wait!

Super simple to make these. I purchased all plates at different thrift stores, I used vases, glasses, candle holders to attach the plates to each other and I used hot glue to attach them together.
