Who would have thought that it that it would be possible to combine cupcakes and record players into something beautiful? Okay, it’s not exactly record players but a big part of it – vinyl records. We really thought that we had seen all the record player furniture industry had to offer after creating our guide on record player stands for 2017. How wrong we were indeed…
What we’ve noticed about the record player community, vinyl and all that old stuff is that these people are really creative and inventive. With this vinyl record cupcake stand you’ll see exactly what we mean. It’s something you really won’t find anywhere else and probably won’t use that often, but we’re almost 100% sure that people will remember you for it. Just imagine how cool it would be to have a few of these at an event?
Take note: The following images and information comes from a guide on Instructables.com titled “Vinyl Record Cupcake Stand”. All credit goes to the creator of this awesome and creative DIY guide.
Take a look at this wonderful piece of art:
As the story goes, the creator had a wedding coming up. The overall theme for the wedding was vintage and being a vintage type of guy himself he thought that creating new cupcake stands from old materials would be a nice fit. We couldn’t agree anymore. It remains uncertain if there was a record player scheduled to make its appearance at the wedding, but he decided on using some old vinyl records for the base and different levels of the cupcake stand.
Making the cupcake stand isn’t all that hard either. We think that almost anyone can design one of these, no matter your level of DIY skill. It can make a great addition to a small tea party or any party where vintage things and record players are the main theme.
To create this vinyl record work of art you basically need a limited amount of materials such as a few nuts, bolts, washers, a threaded rod, between 2-3 records (depending on how big of high the cupcake stand will be) and tools such as knives and pliers to put it all together.

Another designer made a video about this on YouTube which we’re sure will be very helpful if you’d like to build one of this yourself. Just keep in mind not to use records that you actually want to listed too afterwards, okay?
We’ve actually found someone on Ebay.com selling the record player cupcake stands and probably making a hefty profit. On this specific listing they’ve sold more than 147 of these stands already. We can just imagine shipping these things would be a nightmare, but owning one completely worth it!
