I made this cupcake stand by following the instructions on this page. Although in the instructions, she specifies 3 foam boards, I was able to fit all the pieces on 2 foam boards exactly, without any extra foamboard left over. To cover the tiers, I got several sheets of coordinating scrapbook paper. After everything was glued together, I glued some ribbon around the tiers to cover their edges.
You can see that the pedestals in between the tiers are not exactly centered properly. This bothered me to no end after I realized it, but once everything was set up and filled with cupcakes, no one even noticed it. We put some LED tealight candles around the stand to decorate it.
For the toppers, I used two wooden figurines from Michael’s (something like $2 each) that I painted. The bride figurine even got a little dress made from some extra lace fabric from my dress 🙂
