Feature Friday (on Thursday) - tiered stands and candy jars

Tomorrow I'm guest posting somewhere, so we're making today Feature Friday.  I have to admit that when I see an idea done in a ton of places I often don't want to follow the crowd.  Call me a snob, but when everyone's doing it I like to choose not to. 

However, there are rare moments that I just can't help myself.  This is one of them.  You know how everyone has made cake stands and tiered dishes from candles stick holders at the dollar store?  I'm doing it too!  I couldn't fight the cuteness anymore.  It's easy and inexpensive and fun.  It kind of makes me want to throw a party.

I don't even know who I should attribute the idea to, because I've seen it all over.  I bought a few candles stick holders and plates, sprayed them pale turquoise and glued them togther.  I haven't decided if I should permanently glue them like this....

...or if I'd get more use out of them like this.

I saw the jars HERE on Eighteen25 the other day.  I added a little vinyl to mine and I need to make a couple more still.  Kind of fun, huh?

All of that cost $8 (including the stuff to make 2 more jars.)  I think that's pretty cheap for a full party set-up.  They'd be fun for a tea party or a baby shower or pretty much any event.  Have you made some too?  I'd love to see them.  Feel free to link yours up in the comment section.  Thanks for reading.
