Guest Number One: Bethany from Pitter and Glink

I am very excited to have Bethany from Pitter and Glink doing my first ever guest post today.  She was one of the first bloggers I came across last year and have followed along ever since. I am eternally jealous that she has the opportunity to craft most Saturdays, but very grateful that I have the opportunity to read what she has been up to.  So take a look at the post below, and don't forget to follow along!

Hello, Ladies!  I'm Bethany from Pitter and Glink.

I'm so excited to be part of this awesome Craftbotic party extravaganza!  Today, I'm going to share with you how to make a dollar store cupcake stand.

  • Dollar store pillar candle plate
  • Dollar store taper candle holder
  • Martha Stewart paint (and a paint brush, of course)
  • E-6000 Adhesive
Step One:
Gather your dollar store supplies.

Step Two:
Clean the pieces with rubbing alcohol.

Step Three:
Paint your pieces with Martha Stewart's new paint from Michaels.  (The paint comes in so many yummy colors, and it's great for many different surfaces.)  I used several coats of the pearl paint, followed by a coat of the glitter paint in a matching color.

Step Four:
Bake your glass pieces.  You read that right!  You must bake the pieces in order for the paint to fully adhere to the glass.  (That or wait 21 days, and, seriously, who wants to wait that long for paint to dry?!)  I found directions on the Martha Stewart website in the comment section for baking the paint:
"After drying for one hour, place in cool oven.  Set temperature at 350 degrees Fahrenheit and bake for 30 minutes.  (Glass must heat gradually.)  After 30 minutes, turn the oven off.  Let glass cool completely in oven.  Don't use for 72 hours."

Step Five:
Glue the candle stick to the bottom of the candle plate using E-6000.  Follow the directions on the package.

Step Six:
Enjoy your brand new cupcake stand!

I didn't have a cupcake when I got ready to take my pictures, so I used a flower instead.  The great thing about this project is that you can use the cupcake stand as a candle holder.  Or you can stack finger food on it.  It's a very versatile party (or everyday) piece!

I love the color.

I love the pearly look of the paint too.

Can you believe that this only cost $2 plus supplies?  For that price, you can make as many as you want in every shade of Martha Stewart pearly paint in existence!  If you like this project, I hope you will stop by my blog and check out my other projects!

I'm so glad that Rosie invited me to hang out with y'all today.  I can't wait to see all the other party tips and tutorials the awesome guest bloggers have to share with us!
