It's been a seriously busy day today but I still managed to get a cute craft done!

One fact about me- I love to entertain! Not just put out some cheese and crackers but I love going all out with tapas and pretty little appetizers to nosh on. I have many beautiful plates and servers to add to the effect I want to create for each gathering. I get a huge sense of pride out my efforts...

Well, I had a pair of plates I had gotten from a thrift store (both for $1) that didn't match any of my other plates and a random pair of candle sticks. In all honesty, I think I had an urge to super glue something this afternon! A lightbulb went off in my busy mind and I knew exactly what I was going to do with these random objects... Upcycle them!

So anyways- I super glued a candle stick to the bottom of each plate to create a pedestal for it. Hokas Pokas! New adorable cake plates! They can be used separately or stacked together for a tiered effect. But I thought they were fun and share worthy...
