This is not an original idea at all.
I've sure you've seen lots of crafters taking glass and glue to make cake or cupcake stands.
I chose this glass plate for $.50. It looked interesting.
I also just grabbed a candle stick for another $.50 that looked in good condition.
After throwing them in the dishwasher, I glued the candlestick to the bottom of the glass plate with Epoxy glue. It's one of those super glues you mix then apply. I think I found it in the paint section at Wal-Mart.
