I was recently given a fun assignment from Plaid & Walmart.
I received a box of goodies from Plaid
along with a $25 gift card to Walmart.
My job was to browse Walmart looking for a
surface or surfaces to use my fun new Plaid products on!
I was so excited & couldn’t wait to get started.

When I got to Walmart I headed straight for the craft department.
I was amazed at the selection from Plaid!  So many possibilities!
{Has anyone noticed the craft department at Walmart?  It’s gRoWinG! Yay!)

Here are the supplies I ended up using:

Here’s how I made my diy cupcake stand…it was so easy!

cupcake stand how to

1. Painted all the wood white using this super cool foam brush from Plaid.  It fits right on to your paint bottle!  Loved it!

2.  I cut some fabric with my Cameo, & then I used the Mod Podge from Plaid to apply the fabric to my plaques.  (This was the first time I’ve used Mod Podge with fabric…it is awesome!!)

3. Then I used wood glue & screws to hold the plagues together.  I put heavy books on top for 24 hours until my glue was nice & dry.  Then I sprayed my cupcake stand with the Mod Podge Clear Acrylic Sealer to give it a protective finish.
