Birthday cupcake stand :)

Hi everyone!

Our latest challenge is LIVE at LESSology and I am SUPER EXCITED it's LESSology's 2nd birthday!!  So this month's challenge is to make something for a BIRTHDAY!!! 

And I am even MORE excited that this challenge fit RIGHT into my plan for Brookie's 7th birthday next month!!


We are having her party at our home, and I am making most of the decorations, the invites etc... so this fit right into my plan! I love it when a plan comes together *wink* :) 


For Brookie's birthday, the kids will be decorating their own cupcakes (I will have them baked beforehand) -- and so I decided to make Brookie a special cupcake plate just for her!! :)

I had this old stand --

Ohhhhh and while I was trying to photograph above said stand ... the upcoming birthday girl herself HAD to photo bomb me!! :) 


And here is what I turned it into!! Her very own cupcake stand for her party! :)


I hung pearl strands first, then I punched enough 2 inch circles and 1 inch hearts to spell out Happy Birthday ... then I tied them around the plate :) 




The pearl strands had strings on the end of them that I couldn't cut off, so to hide them, I glued fabric buttons from TPC Studios on each side of the pearls :) 











Can't wait to see what you all make for this challenge!! 



Here is our prize for this challenge :)


Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
