DIY- Cupcake Tower

Hi, guys!

Today, I’ll be sharing with you how to make a cute cupcake tower for less than Php100.00!
This will only take 30-45 minutes of your time. It took me 45 minutes since I need to take photos in between.

You may find that the dimensions are a bit small for your liking. If you wanted a bigger cupcake tower you just have to start with a bigger base circle.

Materials:

a pair of scissors
3 yards of ribbon (2.5″ x 108″)
card board / multi-purpose board (28″ x 19″)
pencil
3 round plates in different sizes
glue gun
2 small size glue sticks
cutter
ruler

1. Place the plates on top of the multi-purpose board and with a pencil, draw a line around the plates. Cut out the circles with your pair of scissors.

2. To make a base, cut 2 pcs. of 4″ x 6″ cardboard, then draw a vertical line and make a mark until the center. Cut from the top to the mark. Insert the two card boards together
using the cut marks. Make a wide base for your second tier so it would not wobble.
The base that I used at the bottom of the tower is also made from cardboard with a width of 2.5″ which I glued to the biggest cardboard circle.

3. Measure out the center of the cardboard circles where the base would go. Glue each base to the center to create your tower.

4. Attach the ribbon around the sides of the cardboard circles using a glue stick. Double sided tape is also an option.

Your tower is now ready for your cupcakes!

This tower was able to hold 6 regular sized cupcakes 13 chocolate balls and some colorful candies.

Total cost: Php. 72.50

Happy weekend!
