I found the candle holder at the junk shop.


Rustoleum spray paint project

And I painted it with my new fav paint color….Heirloom White.

Then distressed all that lovely detail.

The vintage green plate is from a set I purchased at the thrift store a couple of years ago. The set wasn’t a full set….just odds and ends. I display the dishes in my china cabinet and use them at Christmas time for appetizers and such.

E6000 project Petticoat Junktion

I used E6000 to glue the plate to the candle holder.

I had to make these cookies just for the photo shoot. Then I had to eat them. I managed to only eat 6 the day I made them……hey….they were small. Good thing the granddaughters came over next day and finished them off.

The cookie stand turned out so darn cute I use it everyday as décor. The small plate on top is a piece I picked up at the Nashville Flea Market. The colors are beautiful and go perfectly with the green plate. I think it’s cute to hide in the cabinet. What do ya’ll think about it? Let me know. I read all of your comments.

Now it’s time to take the tour.

  1. I tried to do this with a small glass candle holder from the Dollar Tree, but when I glued it onto the plate it was crooked/unlevel. Ever come across this?

  2. This is beautiful. Great idea! I love that plate. Will be pretty at Christmastime for decor or dessert.

  3. Love the cookie stand/cake plate. Much better than the original candle holder!!!

  4. Super cute! I think I need to make one too and the cookies of course 😉

  5. I like this, but I would like it better if the plate matched the candle holder, but that is just me!!!

  6. This is darling!I’m kicking myself for passing up some chunky candle holders at the thrift store Saturday.Guess that is a great reason, er um excuse, to go again! Thanks for the great inspiration.

  7. What a great idea, Kathy!! I need to be on the look out for a nice chunky candlestick to make on!

  8. I love it Kathy! That candlestick makes such a beautiful stand for the plate.

  9. Love this! I’m not ‘crafty’ but I believe I could do this too, I even have some nice plates to use. Thanks for the great idea!
