Mod Podged Stand

I helped with a baby shower over the weekend, and needed something to put the dipped pretzels on.  I saw this creation a few weeks ago and decided to make my own.  I already had the candle stick that I wasn't using anymore, and at a church rummage swap I picked up the plates for free.

So I turned these

into this, after some spray paint, mod podge, fabric and hot glue.  
Lesson learned though--hot glue is not the way to go.  I wasn't sure, but it was all I had around.  It lasted through the shower, but then the bottom plate popped off.  I'm thinking I may need to pick up some E6000!


  1. Looks so pretty! I make these all the time & yes e600, or clear epoxy is the way to go :) Make sure you ruff up the surface first & it will last forever !! :)

  2. This is awesome!i love all the things I see made with mode podge! Thanks so much for linking up!

  3. Love how this looks, but pooh about the hot glue not working. I would've thought it would. :( At least you know e6000 is the way to go in the future.

  4. Love your stand! One note about the hot glue...I’ve found that I like that I can break apart projects like this so I can reuse the pieces or store everything in less space. Just a thought.

  5. This came out great! thanks for linking it up to our Wicked awesome Wed. link party.

  6. That's a great idea! I love when I have the things around the house and it costs nothing to make something new. Looks great too!
