Want to turn a few pieces of decorative dinnerware into an elegant, masterfully designed DIY project? All you need are a few dishes and a pair of candlesticks! While you could use this creation for a mini cupcake tray or serving platter, we think it’s perfect as a unique jewelry display. No one else will have a way to keep their baubles organized quite like this!

You’ll need:  

How to:

1. Glue Large Candleholder to Base Plate

Carefully place glue around the bottom of one candleholder, focusing on the candleholder's edge  this is the part that will be touching the plate below it. Press the bottom of the candleholder down onto the center of your "base" plate (make sure it’s the larger of the two plates).

2. Attach Middle Plate to Candleholder Top

Add glue along the top edge of the exposed candleholder, paying special attention to the area where the plate’s bottom will come into contact with the candleholder. Place the second, smaller plate on top of the candleholder. Keep it centered! Press firmly to seal the glue in place.

3. Secure a Second, Smaller Candleholder

Repeat step one with a second, smaller candleholder, securing it to the center of the middle plate. Press firmly and hold together for one minute.  

4. Glue Bowl to the Top

Now, add glue to the top of your second candleholder and secure the small bowl atop the candlestick. Press firmly and evenly to make sure it will stay together.

5. Let Dry Overnight

Let everything dry for 8 hours. Then pile on your jewelry! Use the small bowl for dangle earrings, studs and rings. The middle tray is great for more delicate necklaces and bracelets, and the larger, bottom tray is perfect for heavier bangles and long chains.
