I was recently sent on a FANTASTIC thrift store shopping mission by one of my sponsors. I had the BEST TIME and bought some great, and more importantly, CHEAP stuff! I made a stenciled craft storage jar out of a cookie jar and a little ceramic quail I found and I also made these fun thrift store pedestal trays out of candlesticks and plates.
Now, I have done similar projects like this in the past like a DIY Cupcake Stand which was awesome for a cupcake bar for my daughters second birthday and a diaper cake display for a golf themed baby shower I did. I also made an Easy Pedestal Bowl that I use as a jewelry holder.
Here are the pieces I found at Goodwill.
I just LOVED the shape of these glass candlesticks. They fit perfectly together! E6000 is a go-to for me on projects like this. I carefully spread it around the top of the candlestick and I placed in the center of the plate.
I let them dry for a full 24 hours before I used them. I put one in my bathroom for when I take off my jewelry.
And I put the other one in my craft room.
This is such a fun and EASY project that you can do with just about any plate, tray, candlestick, jar, or glass. The look and shape of the endless combinations can fit any décor style as well!
