Project Pinterest --- What Do You Get When.....

you go to the thrift store and find a perfect pair of little white candlesticks?  I knew from the moment I saw them what I was going to do.  At the same thrift store I found an old plate - isn't it cool!
Look at the detail on the plate -- too cute!
Do you have an idea to what I'm going to do?
I glued the plate to the bottom of the candlestick because I thought the little scalloped edge would look nice on the bottom - does that make sense?  I followed the directions on the 9001 glue.  I added glue to the candlestick and placed it on the plate for a few seconds then you remove it.  Let the glue set for a few minutes and then I returned the candlestick to it's location.  The glue says it takes a full 24 hours to fully set.

Isn't this the sweetest thing you've seen!  I was going to rush out and buy some baked goods but I decided you can use your imagination and put whatever gooey goodness you want right there in the center!  The plate has a very slight blue tint to it.

This is what inspired me.  I loved using the finds from the thrift store.  The vintage look is what I was striving for.  For a more modern feel you could buy plates and something with a more modern style for the base.

This is such a cool looking piece. I love anything vintage, and your creation fits just the ticket. Used to collect old plates, and what a way to display. You could dispaly all manner of things on this one. Hugs.
