Hi there! I’m Rachel over at Fawn – Handcrafted Celebrations and I am beyond thrilled to be a part of the wonderfully talented Eighteen25 Creative Team this year! Today I have a darling wood project to share with you. It’s incredibly simple and fairly quick to whip up.
Wedding season is just around the corner and these rustic cupcake stands and vintage style scooter would make the perfect centerpiece for a bridal shower or wedding reception. Of course they’d be adorable for birthday party or really any kind of celebration that includes cupcakes. 😉
Let’s get this party started!
- Miniwax wood finish – provincial
- Acrylic paint – ivory
- Paper- Simple Stories -Power of Love
- Two 4″ circle plaques, two candlesticks in small and large and scooter – available at The Wood Connection
- foam brush
- wood glue
Trace the flower basket and the front and back end of the scooter using pattern paper and cut out. Set aside while you paint.
Paint all loose scooter pieces with ivory acrylic paint and allow to dry.
Apply wood glue to wood pieces and attach paper to the pieces.
Sand the wheels of the scooter a bit to give them a bit of that distressed look. Punch two circles out from the pattern paper to attach on top of the wheels.
Set aside all the loose scooter pieces while you stain the rest of the project.
Take the 4″ circles, scooter and candlesticks outside to stain. Brush one coat on each wood piece and allow to dry. After all the pieces are dry, take a bit of sandpaper and sand your projects to give them that rustic look.
Using wood glue, attach the 4″ circle to the top of the candle stick.
Attach flower basket, front and back end and wheels to the scooter using wood glue as well.
Tie a pretty little bow around the middle of the candlesticks.
And the most important step… add cupcakes with colorful sprinkles. 😉
And there you have it! Rustic cupcake stands to display lovely little cupcakes and a super cute vintage style scooter.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you treat yourself to a cupcake….or two! 😉
