I already had these candle sticks but never really cared for them. I bought these 2 bowls at the Dollar Store for $1 each & E-6000 adhesive at Wal Mart for $3.
I traced the candlestick onto the bottom of the bowls so that I knew where to put the glue. (Read adhesive directions before you begin) Then I glued them onto one another & followed the directions for cleaning up the extra. It worked great!
Then came the hardest step…WAITING…boo…I hate waiting…
…and waited some more…
The recommended dry time is 24-72 hours. I waited a whole 2 hours. Oh well, it’s not like I’m dunking them in water :) Now I have 2 beautiful pedestal bowls! They’ll be perfect as candy or nut dishes. In the meantime I’m using 1 for my necklaces.
Moving on to part 2 of this Pedestal Mania.
More from the Dollar Store. I love that place! Tin platter was $1 & candle holder was also $1. Woot woot!
I covered the outside of the glass with craft paper. I wanted to paint the inside only so that it still has the gloss look on the outside but with the color showing through.
I painted them with Valspar Gloss Exotic Sea. I love bright colors! Glued them together & voila…I lovely pedestal platter. I’ve always wanted one & this only cost me $2, since I already had the paint. I can’t decide though if I want to use black glaze on this platter since it has the detail & texture around the edges. It also has very subtle detail on the top that you can’t see very well. What do you think?? Is it weird to glaze dishes?
Total cost for all 3 pedestal only $7! Holla!
I still have plenty of E-6000 glue left over for future projects.
I think I’ll plan a party just so I have a good excuse to use these pedestals :)
