I bought all of the items at a local Thrift Store! 2 plates and a candle stick for $1.50 total--LOVE a good deal!
I stacked them ahead of time (see below) before I painted the candle stick.
I stuck with painting the candle stick a simple dark brown to pull colors from both plates.
I super-glued the candle stick first to the top plate then to the bottom!
final beautiful product...I can't wait to use it to display yummy treats!
