Pedestal Bowl - My Covered Bridge

Hi!  I'm Kristen from My Covered Bridge.  I'm SO excited to be a guest blogger on Sugar Bee Crafts!  Thank you, Mandy, for having me!  Since I'm pretty new to this blogging world, let me introduce myself.  I'm a happily married stay-at-home mom of four.  My husband, Craig, and I are currently remodeling and decorating a house we bought six years ago. I love diving into these projects and now I love sharing them through my blog!

Today I want to show you how to make a pedestal bowl.  It's an easy project with a lot of impact - especially for your holiday decorating!  I started with a candle holder that I purchased from a thrift store for $2.99 -
I loved the big chunky shape - but not the green sponge paint.  So I took it outside with a can of chrome spray paint.  After a few light coats, it looked like this -
Then, I picked up a glass bowl from Christmas Tree shops for $4.99-
I simply glued the bowl on using my E-6000 adhesive-
I wanted to fill it up with something festive - so I grabbed a few packages of silver ornaments on clearance at the dollar store ($.25 a box!)-
And there you have it - a great start to your holiday decorating - easy and inexpensive!   I hope you'll stop by My Covered Bridge to check out some of my other projects.  You can see how I Silver Leafed a Wine Bottle-
 Painted Art for my Dining Room out of Thrift Store Finds-
 or Made a Dance Floor for my Daughter's Sweet 16-
And a BIG thank you to Mandy for having me here today!
