Dollar Store Crafts -Cake Plate from candlesticks

I used to be in an art club…many moons ago.  Every so often we would gather up a group of items.  Each artist would get an allowed time with the box of stuff.  Each artist would do something original with the items from the box.  Because, just like people, each of us were different types of artist.   I was really into photography at the time, so I set it up and photographed it…and “Sally Joe” would paint it, and so on. Several of us bloggers got together, After discussion…it was decided that once a month, we would do something with a Dollar Store Item.  So, for the first month we chose those ordinary candlesticks.  Now…I swear I got a picture of them…but for the life of me…I have no clue where I hid it.  So I cropped one of my finished photographs and circled one of the candlesticks.

Okay…sneaky peaky!

The bottom candlestick goes right side up, the top one goes upside down on it…and the pie plate upside down on that.

Here it is with my delicious Creamy Pomegranate Phyllo cups.  Now, how cool is that?

    Fabulous! I need to get some of that E6000 stuff b/c what I used wasn’t much better than spit. haha I think spit might have actually worked better. Love your cake stand, and I want those phyllo cups. YUM.Thx for joining in the 1st Great Dollar Store Challenge. I pinned it! Hope you join up next month, too. :)
    Blessings, Barb
