I really need to start paying more attention to product descriptions. I keep buying items that I think are much bigger than they really are! This has seriously happened to me numerous times. Let me explain...
When I bought the Lara's Wooden Candlesticks I thought they were actual candlesticks that you would use as home decor. When they finally came in, I was shocked at their actual size. They were only three inches tall! After I got over their shocking size, I began to laugh at myself for completely overlooking the "Candlestick 3 in." clearly marked right on the front of the package!
My initial thought when I bought the candlesticks was to just to paint them (when I thought they were large enough to use on a table). When I realized just how small they actually were, my idea instantly went out the window. I was racking my brain trying come up with a project using my mini candlesticks. It took me quite some time to figure out a project idea since I was not going to allow my mistake to turn into a project loss. I ended up using my mini candlesticks to create cupcake stands! I am not sure how this idea popped into my head, but I am glad it did. These mini cupcake stands are a perfect way to put your cupcakes on display. Check out my tutorial below to see just how easy these are to make!
Have you ever bought something that ended up being much smaller than you thought?
