Upcycled CupCake holder - Monday Musings

This is the time of year I go crazy with de-stashing and reorganizing. There is something about the end of winter that simply inspires me to do so. Maybe I simply want to be free to play in the gardens as soon as the ground thaws.

I found this great item in a shop recently and was told by the sales person it is a cupcake holder. I don't bake cupcakes, ( although I do enjoy one on occasion) but immediately thought it would be great with small, clear glass jars to corral all my jewelry supplies. I found these inexpensive clear glass votives fit perfectly. Here are the before and after photos. I have placed mine on a Lazy Susan so I can easily turn it to find what I need and is perfect for keeping beads at my fingertips. It's just what my studio needed!

OOH, love it. I'm washing walls first for Spring cleaning and then getting ready to declutter too.

How many brief and totebags do I need?

Oh my goodness Denise! that is fantastic of an idea. I've seen those cupcake stands here and there and always wanted one but don't really bake cupcakes anymore. Next time I see one I will grab it and steal your idea, lol.

Oh I love that! Now I will have to be on the lookout for a cupcake holder. What a great idea!

This is adorable! I love finding items like this that are functional as well as beautiful. Great job on the transformation! Putting it on the lazy susan was a fantastic idea as well. Now I'll be watching for a cupcake holder as I go thrifting. I think you may have started something here. : )
