How to Spruce up a Plain Acrylic Stand Using Wrapping Paper.

5 Materials
1 Hour
Holiday Centerpiece or Party Serving Stand. Create a custom look using wrapping paper. It's easy.
I started with a Deflecto 3 Tier Dessert Stand* (affiliate link),
wrapping paper, glue stick and cutting mat.

3 Tier Dessert Stand* is from Deflecto Craft Solutions and is available on Amazon.
  • I traced around all three of my circles onto the back of the wrapping paper.
  • Apply the glue stick generously around and inside the circle. 
  • Lay circle onto wrapping paper and smooth out any air bubbles.  (The nice thing about using wrapping paper and a glue stick is that you can easily remove the paper and glue by soaking stand in warm water.)
  • Trim around circle and inside channels using a craft knife and cutting mat.
Glue lace around the outside of each circle and assemble stand. (I used craft glue, not a glue stick, to add the lace.)
Add ribbon and holly berries and you’re ready for a party.
Or add small ornaments and decorations for a fun Holiday Centerpiece.
