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.
