Pedestal Candy Bowl

A couple of weeks ago, I shared a DIY pedestal bowl.

I made this out of a thrift store candle holder and an inexpensive glass bowl (you can get all of the directions here).  I really had no idea how popular that project would be - but it has become my most viewed post ever!  And I've also received tons of comments - thank you!  But there is something I have heard a few times - "I can't find a candle holder like that".  So, I thought I'd try the same project with easy to find materials.  I went to my local dollar store and purchased a candle stick and a votive holder -

Everyone can get these and they are $1 each!  I spray painted the candle stick in Rustoleum Chrome (just as I did with the pedestal bowl) -

Then I simply glued the votive holder on to the candle stick using the E-6000 adhesive.  I filled it up with Hershey's Kisses (I'm all for matching...) and here's the final product-

So now I have a smaller version of the pedestal bowl - and it only cost $2!

Easy, inexpensive and everyone can do it - my favorite kinds of projects!  And don't they look great together?

By the way - the kisses are already gone.  They don't last long in this house.  Good thing I snapped a picture when I did!

I've shared this project here -
