simple dessert platter

Hey everyone! With Halloween festivities a couple of days away, and then other holiday parties close behind, I thought I'd share a quick and inexpensive addition to your partyware.

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. :)
