Halloween pedestal

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!


  1. This is brilliant! I just saw those the other day and was brainstorming ideas for them--this is a great idea. I hope you will stop by and link this up to my Wickedly Creative Halloween Ideas Party if you haven't already.

  2. I love making pedestals...they're so cute and it's fun to find things to put them together with. Target is the best! I would love to have you stop by 'Or so she says...' today and share some of your great ideas with my readers! The 'Your Great Idea' link party runs every Sat through Tuesday. Hope to see you there!
