Re-Invent Objects

     I had seen a post on Pinterest on re-using chandeliers as cake displays.
I had been carring around this light fixture that my brother-in-law had given to me for a few years.  I just hate to get rid of things because I just might need them someday.  It just happened my granddaughter 1st birthday was coming up.  The dishes that I wanted to use on it was a little to costly.  (But someday I will get them.)  So I went to the dollar store and bought 7 metal platters in different shapes (for interest).  I then headed to the hardware store and picked up some plumbing supplies.  Some caps and pvc pipe. 
     I cut out  all the wires off the light fixture and took off some hardware that held the light fixture up.  Then glued the caps to the bottom of the platters and let set up for 3 days.  Cut the pvc pipe at different levels for interest. 
     The beauty of doing it this way you can change it out to fit the different occasion's.  They make great center pieces at party's.  You can use them for  horderves, sandwiches, chip and dip.  It doesn't just need to be used for cupcakes and cakes.  You can put foods around the bottom or flowers.
