Dr. Seuss Cupcake Stands

You can't just have any type of cupcake stand when you are having a Dr. Seuss inspired party....
You need to have something just a little, or ALOT, different.
So when working on my Graduation party, I decided to make some fun cupcake stands!

I started with these swirl wood pieces that I found at Jo-Anns in the wood pieces section.
They were 0.29 each.

Then I added these candle holders.
I bought a bag of 6 for 2.99 at Hobby Lobby in the bagged wood section.

I spray painted them in lots of different colors...green, red, yellow, blue....
Then I glued the center of the swirl onto the top of the candle holder.

Now I have a cupcake holder Dr. Seuss would be proud of!


  1. How whimsical. I totally used the wooden swirls behind some dresser knobs in my baby's nursery 8 years ago. They make great cupcake stands. I'm so glad you're on a Dr. Seuss kick right now. Remember to link your posts to my Dr. Seuss collection. I promote it heavily in Feb/March for Dr. Seuss' birthday, but leave it up all the time as a resource. http://www.obseussed.com/p/books.html - Victoria (@obSEUSSed)
