Here’s the challenge…take a simple glass candlestick and repurpose it in a totally different way! Sooo…I headed out to Dollar Tree and came home with my supplies…the candlestick (#1) and a candle plate (#2). I also remembered a fun little cloche (#3) that I already had and pulled it out to add to my creation. However, you could substitute a Dollar Tree vase turned upside down as well. Baby Kitty says that this is so easy that he even has time for a quick bath!
In fact, this is so super easy that I am almost embarrassed! Just set your glue gun on high temperature and add a bead of hot glue around the top rim of the candlestick. Then affix it to the candle plate, making sure to center it. And that’s it!
Now top it off with a pretty doily and the treat of your choice and…taaa daaa! You’ve got a cute little cupcake or pastry stand that only cost $2.00!
As a finishing touch, I added my little cloche tied with a festive bow for a more Valentine-y look! And don’t forget…you could even use an upside-down Dollar Tree vase as an easy and inexpensive substitute cloche! Now your cupcake looks like so much more without breaking the bank...a perfect little gift! And the stand can be reused in so many different ways!
