Aren't they so awesome?

2 words: spray paint
I don't have the facilities or the know - how to do something like powder coating cheap candle sticks. Let alone the desire to go out and buy all the supplies. I found that spray paint worked just as well, and actually turned out OK. I wish now I had gone over them with a clear gloss coat.
I found the tops of the plates for 75ȼ at Tai Pan Trading. The candle sticks were 25ȼ that we found a local thrift store, and we used Urethane Glue which cost around $6. The spray paint was what I had left over from other projects.

We used the cake plates at my sister's baby shower brunch where we had all different kinds of quiche. It was such a nice way to display everything because not one pedestal matched in color or height. And we used a couple of mugs for some of them.
