12 individual stands. These little stands are so cute and look great scattered around a table, set at individual place settings, at a cheese or dessert buffet, or grouped around a larger cupcake or cake stand. These stands are made from a slices of mixed woods (juniper, elm, and aspen among others), approximately 2″ in diameter, that has been glued to a smaller diameter piece for the base. The bases vary in height, from 1/2″ to 2″, which creates a quaint and visually interesting display. They are level and sturdy. And so cute! The natural bark is still on the wood for a rustic, woodland, country feel.
