The holiday season is upon us, and I'm not quite ready to dole out a ton of money for decor that's going to be out for 6 weeks. I LOVE Christmas, like cannot get enough, simply adore, amcompletelyobsessed. But I don't love spending money. I made a ton of these for my wedding last year, and then promptly sold them in the name of space and sanity. Now that we've settled and it's time for cakes and tasty goodies to be displayed, I thought I'd whip up another in the name of holiday spirit.
So, while at my local Goodwill last week, I spotted this large china platter for $1.50, and found this mercury glass candle holder for $9 at Marshalls and put two and two together. Literally.
What You'll Need:
Large Plate or Platter
Wide Base Candle Stick
1. Lightly wet bottom surface of plate where candle holder will sit
2. Trace very thin line of Gorilla Glue around edge of top of candle holder
3. Place plate on top of candle holder and top with very heavy book
4. Leave heavy book on top of plate overnight to ensure strong bond
