pedestal candy dish using milk glass

i am loving all the pedestal dishes that are everywhere right now! anything with a little stand is like 100 times cuter. no matter what it is. aaaand since you know how much i love milk glass {you can see my milk glass collection here} i had to make a pedestal something with it. so this is the adorable milk glass candy dish i made in a matter of about 30 seconds. {yes, that is an unverified time. knew i should have grabbed that stopwatch and a witness. haha}

and of course, this transformation isn’t complete without a ‘before’ picture……. {but doesn’t that candy corn look delish all orange and yellow and all? i love to add peanuts to my candy corns and eating them together. yummers!}

milk glass

i took simple 3″ milk glass candlestick and used E6000 {awesome stuff!} and glued the candlestick to the bottom of a small milk glass bowl. sooooooo simple! i let it dry for a few hours and i now have the cutest little candy dish in the neighborhood!

this little dish would make a lovely house warming gift or even a thoughtful christmas gift. {anyone else starting to think about christmas gifts??}

    Hi, Linda! It was great to meet you, today! I love milk glass, too; I have a pitcher and some glasses that belonged to my grandma. Hope you had fun at Hobby Lobby; I’m so glad you won the door prize since you’d traveled so far!

    I have a milk glass addiction. I am trying to collect a four piece setting. The plates are the hardest pieces to find! I love your plate wall by the way but I did have a little milk glass envy when I saw it ;D

    SUCH a cute idea! Thanks for sharing with us how to make one for ourselves. Just yesterday, I heard about adding peanuts to candy corn…I am going to have to try that…what “ratio” do you use?

    I saw a “recipe” for “Tastes Like A Payday” The ingredients are: Salted Peanuts & Candy Corn, mix together the instructions are: mix together …almost as quick as making this candy dish! Turns out great every time!! A recycled Mason jar of this is going in my Christmas Gift Baskets this year!! I am using the red, green & White candy Corn. Thanks for sharing your ideas!
