Homemade Tiered Cupcake Stand

I’m so excited to share this super-creative, frugal idea!  If you want to pack some inexpensive “punch” into your next child’s birthday party, consider making a tiered cupcake stand!

homemade cupcake stand

This tiered cupcake stand was made by my sweet friend April for her baby girl’s 1st birthday party.  Isn’t it awesome?

The best part is that it’s quick and easy to make.

  • Find boxes that will stack proportionally and that will leave space around the edges for the cupcakes.
  • Wrap the boxes in coordinating colors for your party or celebration.
  • Decorate the boxes with ribbon and a monogram, if desired.
  • Stack the boxes.  For added stability, use double sided tape between the boxes.
  • Add decorated cupcakes to the super cute tiered cupcake stand!
  • Enjoy watching your guests “Ooooo” and “Ahhhh” over the cuteness! :)

Don’t you love it?  I do.  I can hardly wait to use this idea at Ridley’s next birthday party!

  29. I LOVE this idea! I love the look of the tiered cupcake stands but have never bought one because I always wonder where I’ll store it when not in use the other 364 days of the year. This gives a super creative option that I won’t have to store afterwards!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!

  43. love this! i have been trying to find ideas for my lil baby who is turning 1 in Jan…

  44. Unbelievable how cute a couple of wrapped boxes can be!!
    Great job! If you can find the time, I’d love for you to stop by and share this at the Tuesday To Do Party.



  45. I love everything about this! Not only is the stand really pretty, it can be changed out with the colors of different parties. I love finding crafts that don’t require a purchase of materials that I don’t have. Thank you for this amazing project!
    I shared this on my Friday Favorites on Calico and Cupcakes. Feel free to get a featured button if you want one. Have a blessed Friday and weekend!

  46. This is a GREAT idea! It turned out so lovely! I think I’ll totally be making one of these for my girls’ birthday parties this year!

  47. Such a simple yet effective cake stand design. Looks amazing!

  48. So cute, easy and frugal!! I wish I’d seen this a month ago before I paid $8 for a cardboard character stand at a party store that’s basically a one-time use!!!! Uggh… Well, I know what to do next time though!!

  49. what do you suggest wrapping it with? It looks like you used tissue paper?

    I want to put stickers on the outside of my stand, so i may need something more sturdy.
