I am making holiday gifts for my baking friends, and it is so easy and inexpensive to make a one-of-a-kind gift. If you are a thrift store shopper, find a glass candlestick holder, a pretty plate, and buy a tube of epoxy. The results are stunning. Usually, it does not cost more than $3 if you buy your plate and candlestick holder at a thrift store. Complete instructions and more photos on my blog Cooking in Mexico

Love it!  It’d be great for something to do with sets when part of the set is broken (like when one candlestick breaks, and you only have one left…).

Thanks for the idea.  Terrific. I love repurposing stuff like that.  And I love browsing goodwill for china!  This will give me another reason. LOL
