Pedestal Vases

Looking for a five minute craft? Want to add some lift to your vases? I ventured to the Dollar Tree and $4.00 later, was on my way to a quick, but cute craft.


I started out with two vases and two candle sticks.




I used Gorilla Glue Epoxy to glue them together.



I waited 24 hours to play with them and came up with a cute V-day decoration. Add some candles and some candy hearts leftover from this craft and there you have it!




It's hard to photograph glass! Maybe I should have cleaned them first? Hehehe...


I can't wait to switch out what I use them for each season!


I will be partying with:
Creative Cats at Poppies at Play
Frugalicious Friday at Finding Fabulous
Show and Tell Friday at My Romantic Home

  33. Really cute! And I love how easy it would be to find the different pieces at thrift stores for cheap. The conversation hearts in there just add to the cuteness.

  37. I LOVE how you used the conversation hearts for Valentine's day! I made a couple of these vases at Christmas, but they just have plain candles in them now. Are you tempted to eat the hearts everytime you pass by?

    I'm hosting my very first Mcklinky party on Wednesday. I'd love for you to come on over and link up!
