Wrap yarn around a yogurt cup & fool guests with your DIY

Present your latest batch of homemade (or store-bought) cookies on a handcrafted cookie stand. Whether it's a center stand with a larger plate or smaller individual plates, guests will be impressed that you took time to create an original table decoration. For personal cookie caches, use smaller plastic plates.
It might seem counterproductive to reuse a plastic yogurt container, only to use a new plastic plate with it, but the plate is stationary and can be cleaned for recurrent use. If the plastic is strong enough to withstand a little pressure, use a wet cloth to wipe down the plate after each use.
