Howling Easy Halloween Treat Pedestals

 
Zoulah howls out a warm Halloween welcome to Red Couch Recipes where she has been a lazy kitchen witch, but an energetic crafty witch. 

 
Zoulah's green flesh is turning a bit red because these little pedestals are so easy, she didn't know whether they were worth a post.
 
 
 
You just take a candlestick from your local thrift or dollar store and spray paint it.  You will need to paint it two coats.
 
 
Any candlestick will do,....
 
 
 
After the paint is dry, you glue, E-6000 works well, little plates on the top of the candestick, and voila! 
 
 
Zoulah was happy to find these little plates at K-Mart.
 
 


Then she took a little glass bowl and a candletick......
 
 
and she made this cute little candy jar.  The candy jar is filled with Candy Corn M and M's....Zoulah loves them!
 
 
 
Zoulah thought it needed a little bow on it.
 
 
 
Then she took another candlestick and used a large dinner plate....
 
 
So as you can see, she went to town making pedestals, and now she is going to have to host a Halloween party or two so she can use them!
 
She was inspired by the hostess the BargainBound Blog.  Zoulah found her pin on Pinterest.  She shopped thrift stores and made cute containers for a candy bar.  Her site also looks like she has a lot of other great stuff. 
 
 
 
Zoulah thanks you for stopping in at Red Couch Recipes.

Oh my goodness, it's time for Zoolah again. She is one very clever little witch with her great idea for pedestal plates. I know I have some old candlesticks stashed away in a cupboard.

Once again,Zoulah makes the jump on Beaulah!What cute pedestals and I just adore your wands too. They are super cute. I can see my kiddies wanting to eat those. Guess you could use frosting but it would be a pain to dry. guess I am going to have to get the witch out of her storage! Glad you found Zoulah!

Fantastic. Pinning for sure. My weekly linky party--One Creative Weekend--has gone spooky this week in honor of my thirteenth party. If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll visit "One Creative Weekend" on OneCreativeMommy.com (open every Fri-Wed) and link up this idea and anything else you’d like to share. (You can include non-Halloween posts as well, but feel free to link up as many Halloween-themed posts as you like.) There are two categories—one for Halloween and one for everything else.

Very cute! Can't wait to see your party!

Debbie said...

Ahhhhh... I'm finally back in Blog Land and just in time for the return of Zoulah. I'll have you know that your Halloween Zoulah posts and those of your sister are among my favorites.

Love the pedestals. Thanks for the tip on the glue. I had often wondered what kind of glue was used for stuff like that.

I can see that making pedestals could be habit forming:) They all look great! The paint job is perfect!
