So I really really love anything DIY (although I can never seem to find the time to tackle all of the projects I want to)! I can't remember where I first got the idea for this project. You can find lots of these for sale on Etsy.com, but it is really too easy and too inexpensive not to do yourself! I found the plates, glass, and pedestal at Value Village and Goodwill all for under $5 total.
cake (or thin mint, in this case) stand
jewelry holder made of two matching tea saucers and an upside down brandy glass
Basically all you need to do once you find your items is wash, dry, and then glue them together! I use a really durable craft adhesive called E-6000. It is waterproof and can be used on glass, wood, metal, ceramic, etc. It is currently (and successfully) holding up my side view mirror on my car..!!
Anyways - hope you enjoy :)
