I created these with easy to find candlesticks and tall vessels that can be found at the dollar store or almost any thrift store. 

They are very easy to make and you just need a little E6000 glue

DIY for creating a tall pedestal vase

I added the E6000 to the top of the candlestick.

I turned the piece over and put something heavy on top while it dried. 

That's it! 

It couldn't be easier or more inexpensive. 

I've been making pedestal dishes of one kind or another for years and you can check out more of them here.

Fill them with Valentine candy, coffee beans, moss balls, or Christmas ornaments.

  1. Love these! wonderful idea and so happy to have a new reason to shop the local thrifts!

    1. Thanks and like we need another reason to go to the thrift store? Luckily I have a place to sell my projects because I'd fill up my house with all the things I want to make!

  2. For one Christmas I used clear Dollar Tree candle holders and glued blue glasses on top. Turned out very pretty for gifts. Another time I glued bling around the top of the vases from DT. Not sure about other DT stores, but ours had candle holders that were slightly different. Be sure they match and the tops are even.
    Love your Easter filled vases.

    1. Myrna they sound gorgeous! I love making things with these candleholders and I bet yours were spectacular!
