DIY Candle Holder Pedestal Dish

       Finding DIY Inspiration in the clearance aisle.

DIY Candle Holder Pedestal Dish.

I always check the clearance aisle's and end caps when I'm out shopping. 

Truthfully, the thrift stores have gotten so expensive I sometimes find a better bargain in the clearance department of my favorite stores. 

Just yesterday my local thrift store wanted $9.99 for a beat up wooden Lazy Susan... seriously?

Every once in a while I find a real bargain and inspiration hits me with something brand new. 

Check the clearance aisle for the best bargains!

Today I found this ceramic candle holder, it looks hand made and only cost $4.48.

I didn't need a candle holder so I stopped to think about what else it could be and it hit me. 

Flip it over...

Make the bottom the top. 

I took off the felt feet and the label and attached the candle holder to another inexpensive enamel pie plate I had with E6000 glue.

How cute! 

No painting required... just a little glue! 

This is the perfect easy project for those just testing their DIY wings.

It makes the perfect pedestal dish and the base is so solid you don't need to be worried about it tipping. 

You can even add a cloche top.
