We ended up with all my kids getting sick over the course of the last couple weeks, so I was stuck at home going nowhere for 10 days. To prevent myself from going in sane, I had to come up with lots of little projects to work on. This is one that's been on the list for a while, and it seemed to perfect time to get it done.
This isn't really an original concept, just my take on one I've seen around. I've seen lots of dessert/cupcake stands with two plates, but for my purposes, I really wanted one with a bowl on top. We LOVE dips and salsas and cheese balls, and all manner of yummy things that a bowl just works better for.
So I started with a plate and bowl I found from Target for a couple bucks each. Add in a painted dollar store candlestick.
Glue them all together. I was originally going to use E6000, but mine was all dried up, so I grabbed the Gorilla glue, just being extra careful to keep the glue on the inside of the candlestick so it didn't foam up all over the plate and bowl.
Then fill with yummy goodness and serve!
