I got to combine three of my favorite things in this project today. It’s been so much fun! I love Spring and all of the beautiful flowers it brings. I also really love the adult coloring book trend, and around here cupcakes are a winning favorite every time. This Spring Coloring Book Cupcake Stand was so much fun to make using Walnut Hollow Chippendale plates and the inspiration from some very beautiful Adorn-it Adult Coloring books. You can easily take the Coloring book trend to the next level and color on these beautiful wooden plates instead of just on the paper!
Supplies needed to make your own Spring Coloring Book Cupcake Stand:
- Walnut Hollow Chippendale Plates in both 11.5″ and 9.5″ sizes
- Walnut Hollow Creative Versa-Tool®
- Adorn-it Coloring page from the Folk Garden Coloring book.
- Strong Multipurpose glue like E6000
- Candle Stick
- Polycrylic sealer
- Acrylic Craft paint
- Graphite tracing paper
- Paint Brush
- small bowl of water
Choose your favorite coloring book page from the book.
Trace the design you picked onto the plates using graphite tracing paper.
I broke the design up between the two plates, spacing the flowers out until I was happy with their placement.
Using your Creative Versa-Tool® burn the design into the wood, following your traced lines.
Paint your flower design using the acrylic craft paint just like you would if you were coloring. Use a small brush, and whatever colors you wish. I made mine bright and happy, like Spring! The wood burned lines in the plates act like a guide, it’s very easy to paint over a wood burned picture.
I left the rest of the plate in it’s natural wood state.
Seal your plate. Most finishes are safe to use on kitchen items as long as they are allowed to fully cure before use. Choose the one you are most comfortable working with. I used a simple water based polycrylic to seal the wood.
Apply two coats and allow to dry for 24 hours.
Glue your candlestick between the plates. I used E6000 glue. Attach the bottom of the candlestick to the middle of the bottom plate, and the top of the candlestick to the underside middle of the top plate.
Allow the glue to dry completely.
Now you have a beautiful, bright, and happy Spring cupcake stand.
Fill your bright and happy cupcake stand with your yummy cupcakes and display proudly! The stand comfortably holds 10-16 standard size cupcakes. I had fun using the coloring book page to also make colored chocolate toppers for my cupcakes. Aren’t they so cute on my Spring Coloring Book Cupcake Stand?
Do you love the adult coloring trend too?
After studying Culinary Arts in Portland Oregon, Kelli went back home to the sunny South West where she decided she wanted to do different kinds of Art. This busy mom of three spends all of her available free time creating in her Craft Shack “she shed” where she can be found burning wood, repurposing old stuff, playing with clay, and painting just about anything she can get her hands on.
