Glittered Pedestals

So created these cute little pedestals out of $3 wooden candlesticks (you can see the raw version in this post) and paper plates! Once again, this is a Martha project. You can watch the how to vid on Martha Stewart.com.

Take four of these paper plates and glue them together.

Then I painted the candlestick and the finished plates both black.

There is this aluminum insert inside the candlestick that I removed. It made the top of the candlestick flat so that I could hot glue the plate to the top of the candlestick.

Then I got down to the fun part....THE GLITTER!

Here are all of my supplies...and a latte of course! Took me about 20 minutes to glitter...then I gave a quick spray of clear mirror varnish, just to kep the glitter in place a bit...cuz if you have done any glittering, you know it goes EVERYWHERE!

And here they are, displaying my lovely Crystal Skulls!

Ok Marcie...I'm dying over all your cute Halloween ideas. These pedestals are amazing and so simple. I have to blog about yet another one of your great ideas - hope you don't mind.

I so wish I was invited to your Pikelween shindig!

Outstanding. I may have to make something like this just to have as an extra serving dish for appetizers. Of course, different colors and all. Wow, you should be proud of yourself!!!!
