DIY Cupcake Stand – From Old Lamp Parts
The first thing that you’ll need to do is to head to the thrift shop or a yard sale and look for old lamps. I love thrift shopping and share some tips in THIS ARTICLE. Not a thrift shopper or dislike yard sales? Alternately you can head over to eBay that is a treasure trove of vintage fare. It’s more than possible to create beautiful objects for you home while staying in a budget if you think outside the box! The lamp bases below are brass and I removed them from several lamps that had outdated porcelain mid-sections that just aren’t my style and had damage.

If frou frou isn’t your style, alternately you can simply take the same idea and use raw metal lamp stands with plates that are more attuned to your aesthetic. These are some vintage French plates (one is a bowl) that are damaged, so I had no remorse in creating a few stands.
