I’m back this week with a awesome accessory to any kitchen, bathroom or anywhere you need a cute place to put “stuff”. It’s so cheap, and easy too! All you need are some plates, an old thrift store candle stick, spray paint and a hot glue gun. I got my candle stick for $1.50 at a thrift store (originally brass), spray paint was $1 at Home Depot, and the plates were less than $2 each at Target.
1. Spray your old candle stick with any color spray paint of your choosing.
2. While that’s drying, take the plates of your choosing and measure from one side to another deciding what is the perfect middle of the plate. Mark the middle with a sharpie so you will have a little help when gluing the candle stick on.
3. Once your candle stick is dry completely glue the bottom of the candle stick onto the center of the plate. This can get a tad tricky, and is almost a game of how quick you can glue. We all know hot glue can harden pretty quickly. (If you don’t get it in the right spot the first time, don’t worry, just pull it off and try again)
4. Once you have the candle stick glued where you want it onto the bottom plate, completely cover the top of the candle stick with glue and attach top plate. If you want, you could do the top plate first, then the bottom plate last, whatever is easiest for you.
And that’s it! You are ready to throw some jewelry on it, or use it as a deviled egg platter at this weeks Easter dinner! Its also easy to make a 1-tier cake stand if you want, you can find my post on that here! Enjoy!
*Tips* If you wanted to have a more sturdy hold, you could use gorilla glue, tough as nails, something of that sort. I prefer to work with hot glue…it is easy to peel off if I mess up!
