Homemade treat trays

Here is my first project of the year! I used a couple of pretty vintage floral plates, thrifted candlesticks of different heights, and some E6000 glue to put together these sweet little treat trays. Now mind you, I have NEVER had occasion to use treat trays like this... but, I'm convinced that's only because I've never had them before. 

I plan to make up a reason to use them soon! This project was so easy there's really no tutorial needed, but I will say the trickiest part is centering the candlestick on the bottom of the plate. So, eyeball it carefully... or, "measure twice, glue once"... or, whatever your centering mantra may be... and give it a try! 

I'm sharing these pretty servers with Suzanne for Vintage Thingies ThursdayTransformation Thursday over at Shabby Creek Cottage, and Stephanie Lynn's Sunday Showcase at Under the Table and Dreaming. Thank you to these lovely ladies for hosting such wonderful link parties each week!
