I love buying something and turning it into something else. When I saw the cutest (there's that word again, I need to get myself a thesaurus) appetizer plates at Target, I knew I could do something with them.
I made a mini Halloween pedestal or cake stand or pumpkin stand- whatever you want to call it!
I purchased an appetizer plate and snack dish for around $3.
Putting it together was as simple as removing the plastic lid from the snack dish and turning it upside down,
putting a glob of hot glue onto the bottom,
and centering it onto the bottom of the plate. I'm not sure how long the glue will hold. I do know it won't hold permanently- which works for me since I plan to take it apart to store it anyway. If a permanent hold is desired I suggest using E600 or an epoxy.
This wee-little pedestal is an excellent mini pumpkin holder!!
And it's a fine handsoap holder in our bathroom too!
