A while back at Goodwill, I happened upon glass candle holder that I could not pass by at a whopping $0.50. However, I had no intention of using it for it's given purpose. I planned to make a cake plate with it. On this trip I also found a cute little glass cloche ($1.00) that I could use as a cover for the cake plate. All I needed was the perfect plate.
On one of my trips to Asheville, I stopped by Pier 1 to see what I could find. After a bit, I found the perfect plate that was neutral enough, yet classy enough to meet my ever-so-picky needs. I don't remember how much the plate cost, but it was on sale. Of course.
Move forward approximately six months, I finally put all the pieces together. I gave the candle holder, glass cloche and plate a good washing and let it air dry. Once it dried I adhered the candle holder to the bottom of the plate with Gorilla Glue and let it dry/set overnight.
Now I have the cutest little cake plate ever and it was made on a dime, of sorts.
