sorry i didnt get back sooner i have been feeling under the weather lately. i should have been more specific. the plate is right side up. the clay pot is upside down, the bowl is right side up.the bowl in this picture is a bowl you eat out of. the saucer is right side up. the butter bowl is a country crock butter bowl without the lid. you can go to the thrift store and get the plates and the bowls use the bowls instead of the butter bowls. the bowls are the kind you eat out of.

It makes a great conversation piece.
If you have teacups you want to display, maybe mismatched ones you don't want to get rid of, try this. Put a votive candle in them and place them on a stack of books on a bookshelf or an end table.
I used an old spice bottle for this cute little decoration. Wash bottle well and dry. Put a dab of hot glue in bottom. Add fiberfill.
This is a guide about glass jar candle holder ideas. Using canning jars or glasses you can make decorative candle holders for festive decorations or gifts.
For homemade candle holders where the base isn't too large, just epoxy an upholstery tack upside down on the top and you have a place to secure your candle.
Start with a 3x3 inch square block of wood, about 1-2 inches deep. Paint it out with light (off-white, cream, eggshell, etc.) colored craft paint. If you have the tools, drill a 2 inch diameter circle or the diameter of a pillar candle you have on hand.
For quick, easy mood lighting indoors or outdoors, wrap old sturdy glassware with Sushi bamboo mats, tie with raffia, and insert tea candles.

I am making wooden candle pedestals. I am staining them and gluing words on them. But my glue shows through the paper that the words are written on. What can I use to attach them? Could I use the last coat of stain like a glue and stick the papers on right before it dries? Thanks in advance.
