DIY Rustic Cupcake Stand Tutorial
  Step 1. Cut three stair step size logs to your desired size.
Mine was 10, 12, & 15″

Step 2. Cut two smaller size logs.
{these will go in the middle}
Mine was 6″
Step 3. Take your drill & screw and drill into the above tier
make sure you go in at a angle.
{like shown in pic below}

Step 4. Repeat step three to the opposite side. You want to make sure your smaller log is securely screwed to the top tier and to the bottom.
Note: you will use four screws for each tier

 

Step 5. Take one screw and drill it into the top. Once again, making sure it is secure.

Step 6.  Repeat steps 3 -5 for each tier 
{this is what your stand should look like so far}

It’s really simple and just think of it as a “stacking method”
Step 7. Your FINISHED

This is what your rustic cupcake stand should look like finished.
And here is my cupcake stand at my wedding.
