Plate Stand

I just adore these plate stands and they are so easy and inexpensive to make.

I bought the big dish from Dollarama. Which you can kind of tell because they are all a little warped along the top.

I used an old glass candle holder for the base.  They worked so great for this project, because the bottom of the candle holder fit perfectly in the circle on the bottom of the plate.

This is the top of the candle holder, which will be on the bottom once it is glued on.

I painted the candle holder with chalk paint and then I spray sealed it a couple of times to protect the paint.
This is the bottom of the candle holder that is glued to the plate.  This one is painted grey.

Once the candle holder was completely dry, I sanded the paint off the edge where I would be gluing it so that it would be a true bonding. Then I glued the bottom of the candle holder to the bottom of the plate using "Goop".  I found it takes this Goop glue about 4 days to dry to the point where you can't move it around anymore.  So, if that's the kind you use, be careful not to move it too much for the first few days.

I wouldn't want to submerge this stand in water, but it is washable.

This one I'm keeping. I love the blue base.

I think they turned out pretty cute.

Thanks for stopping by.
