Step 1: Supplies

Items you will need from Dollar Store:

9” Pie Pan
12” Pizza Pan
1 Large Pot
1 Medium Pot
Metallic Mardi Gras Beads

On Hand Items:

Scissors
Hot Glue Gun and Glue
Spray Paint - any color, I used metallic gold
Industrial or Super Strength Adhesive
Paper Towel

Step 2: Glue Beads Onto Pans

Remove the paper from the pans. Heat up your glue gun and glue on two rows of metallic beads around the top of the pizza and pie pan. Let dry.

Step 3:

Once the beads have completely dried, spray paint both sides of the pans and pots. Make sure coats dry in between spraying so you avoid runny drips. 

To add texture to your pots and pans, take a piece of paper towel and scrunch it up. Spray paint a small section of the pan with paint and dab it with the paper towel. Repeat this process on all pots and pans. Let fully dry.

Step 4: Glue Pots to Pans

Once all your items are completely dry you are ready to put them together. Glue the medium pot to the bottom of the pie pan and the large pot to the bottom of the pizza pan with the industrial strength adhesive. I used E-600, it works well. Let dry, this will take several hours.

Step 5: Finished Project!

And you are done. I have two dessert stands, one for cookies (the pie pan) and one for cakes or cupcakes (the pizza pan) or you can stack them as well for a variety of desserts, appetizers, table centerpieces with candles, the possibilities are endless.

**PLEASE DO NOT PLACE FOOD DIRECTLY ONTO YOUR CUPCAKE STAND. ALMOST ALL PAINT IS NOT FOOD SAFE AND SHOULD NEVER COME IN CONTACT WITH FOOD. YOU CAN PLACE FOOD ON WAX, PARCHMENT OR BUTCHER PAPER, PAPER PLATE OR ANY OTHER FOOD SAFE SURFACE.
