Tiered Paper Candy Stand

If you're hosting a birthday party, make it a "green" one. Forget the plastic and go paper -- paper plates, paper tablecloth, and all-paper decorations!

  • 2 paper cups

  • 3 paper plates (1 small, 1 medium, and 1 large)

  • Pencil

  • Hot glue gun

  • Candy cups

  • Assortment of treats, such as candy and macarons


  1. Build a simple treat tier from the paper cups and plates: trace the outline of a paper cup in the center of each plate (on the bottom of the small and medium plates, and the top of the large plate). Glue the cups to the outlines, then glue each tier to the next. Follow our directions for making a giant paper poppy flower.

  2. Fill the tiered treat stand: On bottom tier, place candy in candy cups. Place macarons on middle tier and the paper poppy on the top tier.
