here's my take on the DIY tiered stand!
i bought the two plates at target on clearance (75 cents each?), and the wooden candlestick at the thrift shop for a quarter.
fun, mod, shiny, but maybe not my style so much. i thought about painting the wood, but i sort of like it with the b & w. we'll see. i put the narrow end on the bottom plate to leave more room for snacks. because that's the whole idea, right? a place for snacks?
in case you've missed the zillion other how to's online, you just glue the candle holder to the plate on each end. i love the idea of vintage state plates for this. i always want to buy them when i find them, but i just don't have the right project for them. until now, maybe...
