glass pedestal plate

I had been planning to share my cute little kidlet's Halloween costumes with you today, but I didn't get around to taking their pictures this past weekend so I'm posting a recent non-Halloween project instead. Hopefully, I'll be able to post their costumes on Wednesday. Until then, here's a super easy, quick, and cheap project.

I have been seeing these DIY glass pedestals for awhile now; they are all over the internet on craft blogs and Pinterest. People talk about using thrift store or Dollar Tree finds but I was a bit skeptical that I would really be able to find something that looked decent. Finally, I remembered to check my Dollar Tree store when I was there getting the houses for my Halloween village and I found a nice looking candlestick holder and small plate. I already had E-6000 glue (amazingly strong and good for so many things!), so I was excited to give this a try.
This project involves 4 easy steps:
1- acquire the candlestick(s) and plate(s) that you will be using (someday I would also like to make a tiered stand);
2- glue around the rim of the candlestick and place the plate on top;
3- turn it upside down and let it dry overnight;
4- wash it. :)
