Cake Plate Pedestals

Yes, this is my third post about Thrift Store Finds.  If you haven't guessed, I love a good find.  I love to hit the thrift store and find unique jars, candlestick holders, and sundae dishes that I can turn into cake plates. 
One day I was at our local thrift store and the guy running it saw me looking at these cute little sundae jars.  He had $1.00 on each one.  He came over and told me if I took all 8 of them, he would give them to me for $2.00 total!  BARGAIN.
All you need to make these fun little conversation pieces is a plate, a pedistal(sundae dish, candle stick, wine glass, etc) and my favorite glue, E-6000.  You can find E-6000 at your local craft store or Wal-Mart.

Just glue the base to the plate.  I place a heavy book on top of the base to keep pressure on it.  It usually takes about 24 hours for it to dry.
Voi la'!  You have a fabulous cake plate.
This is one of my favorite finds from Goodwill.  It was 99 cents for the candlestick, and I found the plate for 25 cents.  I love how big and tall it is.

Get creative.  You can even make two tiered plates.  These are perfect for holiday treats, or a great gift for a new neighbor.
Happy Hunting!
