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, now I’ve seen all the cups with candlesticks, and mason jars with candlesticks, and I really didn’t want to do that same concept, but I do love the concept of a pedestal. So with that in mind, I knew for my project…I’d need two! Okay…sneaky peaky! Honestly?…you really don’t even need a tutorial. Two candlesticks, E6000, and one pie plate turned upside down…no more explaining to do! Here’s what E6000 looks like, in case you’ve not seen it before. 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?
I’m so relieved this turned out…I REALLY needed a new cake stand.
I can’t wait to see what everyone else comes up with for the dollar store crafts challenge. Join in and check it out!
Could you used a new Cake Stand? Well…this one only took about 10 minutes to make. Just follow the instructions on the glue you choose.
So…sit back and enjoy the party…and soak in all the artistic amazement! Have fun!
