A fun, quick, and easy way to display your seasonal treats is on stands. I happen to own LOTS of cakestands, but thought it would be fun to make some specific to the season. With pumpkins and paper plates.
I've found an abundance of little pumpkins left in the field from the pickers, who accidentally broke off their stems. Once the stems are gone, they're not really desirable to most people buying pumpkins, so there they sit - all broken hearted. In an attempt to rescue these orphaned pumpkins, I've discovered they're great for stacking on each other for decoration and for these cute little stands.
Step 1.) Start with a mini pumpkin. If your pumpkin has a stem, cut it or break it off:
Step 2.) Hot glue a paper plate atop the pumpkin. I've used a small salad-sized plate here, as the pumpkin is small:
This pumpkin is slightly larger, so I've used a dinner-sized plate here:
Step 3.) Fill plate with treats:
or stack the stands two high for double the treats - double the fun:
And there you have it. Changing the world - one pumpkin at a time. :)
