DIY Tiered Baseball Snack or Cupcake Display Stand


I wanted to create a tiered stand for displaying treats when everyone comes over to watch a baseball game. It was time to get creative!

I purchased a dozen baseballs and drilled holes all the way through five of them with a 7/8" drill bit.

At Hobby Lobby I found a wooden platter that was 14" across and some wood circles 10" and 6 1/2".

The smaller circles were thin, so I glued two of them together with wood glue to give them more stability.

I used the 7/8" drill bit and drilled a hole through the center of each of the re-enforced circles and the wooden platter.

I painted all of the circles white and painted a 7/8" dowel white.

I used an industrial strength adhesive to glue four balls (un-drilled) to the base of the platter for 'feet'.

I used a fine black Sharpie and a red Sharpie to draw the stitching onto the discs and the platter.

This is starting to look like a baseball theme!

I took the balls I had drilled through and stacked onto the dowel, fed it through the discs and the platter. For the bottom of the dowel, I drilled partially through a baseball and glued it onto the bottom of the dowel. A small dollop of adhesive was added to the baseballs above and below the discs for extra stability.

At the top I used one baseball, also only partially drilled and glued it to the top of the dowel. There you have it, a fun themed cupcake or snack stand ready for all of your baseball fans, or your favorite local team!

    Not a question, but a comment. This is great! But why not leave the wooden plate undecorated? It looks like a baseball bat!

      This would be great for a little league team party, serve cupcakes or anything of the like on it. I am an umpire for kids age 16 and under and the 7-13 year olds would love something like this. Here in Florida we have pool parties for the boys and this would really add to the theme thanks for the idea.

    Do you think it would stand properly without the 4 balls on the bottom as feet?
