Every now and then we have something in our house which is of no use for us but we can turn them into something extraordinary useful by being creative. I guess everyone have some cardboard’s, paper rolls or plastic containers in their home which are useless now or you are ready to throw them out but wait!
You can make a cake or cup cake stand out of it for your kids to enjoy the desserts in the evenings. Kids love colorful stuff and they like being doing things which they enjoy. If you make a cake stand out of these specific things your kids can also help you in it. You do not have to buy a cake stand from the market which will cost you heavily but make one by yourself and enjoy the time as well.
You do need to collect certain material in order to complete the whole project.
Material you would need:
- Glue gun
- Color pencils
- And any printable cartoon you would like to glue on the stand to make it attractive for your kid.
First you have to decide the theme of the stand and that is how you would proceed deciding the colors and combinations which would be glued on the cake stand.
Remove all kind of labels or marks from the cardboard’s which you think would be visible even if you paint the cardboard or plastic. Glue them backwards so that it gives you a smooth and clear surface.
Now start painting the trays, the tissue rolls and the plastic. The colors of the paint would depend upon the cartoon you choose to paste on the cake stand.
Now once you are done with all the painting. Start off with designing the animal or any character which have chosen to make out of the cardboard, tissue roll and plastic. You should know how to attach it once you decide and make sure it is something easy and simple so you do not have to waste too much time on it.
Now place the large trays under the character you have built and glue it together. So now you would be having a base to the cake stand where you can place the cupcakes all around.
These are the four simple steps which you need to follow in order to make a cake or cupcake stand. You can make it if deciding to arrange a party for the kids. Think of ways where you can do the projects by yourself without spending much. If you are creative enough than you wont have to face any difficulty making all these stuff for your kids. It is a good way to keep your kids busy with you as well since they love painting and coloring at that age.
