SO I am uber cheap, super crafty and I love the unusual so I thought of this idea which I most likely saw
somewhere else possibly craftster lol so I won't take credit for it being an original idea but I am proud of them just the same they took like 2 minutes to make and a day to dry, and a whopping $2 EACH to make I purchased plates & candlesticks at Goodwill for $1 each and the glue I already had but purchased at Hobby Lobby. Everyone at my sister's baby shower adored them I can't wait to use them again Smiley

E6000 glue
any cute glass plate
a candlestick holder with a bit of a rim around the top

Step 1: Remove nasty Goodwill tags and clean and dry plates & candlestick holders

Step 2: apply E6000 glue to rim of candlestick

Step 3: center candlestick on bottom of plate

Step 4: allow glue to set for 30 minutes before moving

Step 5: flip so candlestick balances plate and allow glue to finish setting for 24 hours

If you look closely you can see the plates on both sides of the table

My Diaper cakes Smiley The two small cakes are placed on plates I made using saucers missing teacups

Those are super great for parties, and showers.  And I LOVE the idea of it all.
I recently made a fruit stand similar to these.  If it were more practical I would
make a whole bunch of these and we would eat off of them every night!

Good job!

I am interested in personal swaps!
