. . . Dollar Store Tiered Stands . . .

I know many of you have probably seen variations of this project in blogland.  I love how simple and cheap it is and figured I would go ahead and share it since everyone does theirs differently.  It is a really easy project and makes for a fun way to serve your food.

Dollar Store Craft
 I picked up a few plates in the colors I wanted and then some candle holders from the dollar store.  I used my E6000 glue (the best) and glued the candle stick holders to the bottom of each plate.  I then stacked them and used the E6000 glue to adhere the candlesticks to the other plate so it creates a tiered stand.  

I purchased my plates at Pier 1 and at The Dollar Store.  The bright striped plates are melamine and the solid colored plates are normal "glass" type plates.  I mention this so you know you can do this stand with either type of plate.

You will need:
Plates
Candle Stick Holders
E6000 Glue
•Gather your supplies
• Add glue to the top of your first candle stick holder
• Place the candle stick holder on the bottom of the first plate

• Clean any excess glue off the bottom of the 
plate with a damp paper towel
• Add glue to the next candle stick holder and apply to the bottom of the second plate
• You will then want to put glue on the bottom of the 2nd plate's candle stick holder and apply that to the bottom plate
• Continue this process until you have your tiered plate holder

• Place books or something heavy on your completed tiered stand so the glue dries tightly. 
• Once the glue has dried you are ready to serve food 
from your pretty stand
