One Dollar Wednesday~ Halloween Pedestal

Okay my title, a little lame since "One" doesn't start with a "W". It does have a ring to it though, so I'm sticking with it...for awhile at least. I'd like to start featuring my Dollar Store crafts on Wednesdays. Hence my title.

My "One Dollar Wednesday" craft today is my Halloween Pedestal. You might remember this pedestal....



Did you know that I made it from these Dollar Tree items....


I'll show you how.

I popped open my package of "Dollar Tree" burner covers and sent them straight away to my Spray Paint Place.

After 2 coats of primer, and 3 coats of Halloweeny orange, and some sanding away of drippy places, I was HAPPY!

While the "plate" part of my pedestal dried, I gave my candle sticks a couple coats of primer and paint. Then I added purple polka-dots to them...


I added a "paper pennant" border all the way around.


A BIG glob of hot glue to hold all the pieces together.


They can be used stacked...


and seperate...
