Colorful Mason Jar Cupcake Stand

  • 1h

Cupcake stands can be pretty mundane. When my daughter requested a rainbow Barbie birthday party, I knew I needed a fun cupcake stand that went well with the theme. We used mason jars and pieces of wood to create a fun, colorful mason jar cupcake stand.

The stand is made with just a few items like mason jars, spray paint and wooden boards.

The first step is to paint the mason jars. I stuck the jars on top of paint stirrers and sprayed them with spray paint. We chose a mixture of gloss and satin spray paint based on the colors I wanted

We painted the wood pieces white so the colored mason jars would be more visible. Craft paint is the perfect option for that. Just paint each board on all sides.

Once all your painting is done and dry, it is time to build the cupcake stand. Start with the larger wood board on the bottom. Center on jar in the center and glue it to the board. Glue the next sized board in top and then another jar. Finish with the smallest board.

The cupcake stand is one of my favorite projects. Even with cupcakes on top, you can still see the fun colors of the mason jars. It is the perfect way to customize a display for a party.

Got a question about this project?

    I think that I would paint and mount the rings to the base, making it easier to pick up and move

      Great idea. I did glue the metal plates to the jars to give me a larger area to glue to the wood. I didn't think about adding the rings too.

    You could also leave the mason jars unpainted and fill them with dried flowers or small Christmas balls or whatever, depending on the time of the year. Screw the tops to the board above and then just glue the bottom of the jar to the board below.

      Candy would be great in the jars for a children's party theme..

    Great, too bad we don't know each other, I have a Wilton Barbie cake pan.
