Blog Swap
I'm doing my very first blog swap today!  I've never done one before and I am so honored to be a guest at Holly's blog, Life as a Thrifter. If you love all things thrifty, cheerful and just plain fun, you have to go visit her blog.  You will love it.  Tell her I sent you. 
I would like to welcome Holly here at Make The Best Of What's Around.  She has a super fun, and very frugal project to share with you today.  Read along, enjoy, and then go visit Holly at Life as a Thrifter.  Take it away Holly...
Hello!  I'm Holly from Life as a Thrifter, and I am thrilled to be a guest on Make the Best of What's Around today!  I'm a huge thrifter and love making something new out of something old. Today I'd like to share with you some cake stands I made entirely out of thrift finds.
Here's what I did:

I found 3 thrift plates . . .

and 3 old wooden candle holders (and such).

Then, simply glued them together.

So cheap and so easy!
A BIG thank you to Tanya for allowing me to share with you guys today!  If you'd like to see more fun thrift ideas, pop on over to Life as a Thrifter
Happy hunting, everyone!

Thank you again Holly for your fun idea.  I'm going to be on the lookout now for wood candlesticks! Love, love this idea.


  1. Congrats on your first blog swap, Tanya! Love the idea, Holly. I'm going to have to be on the lookout for some plates and old wooden candles now. :)

  2. Turned out so nice. I like the wood contrasting with the white plates.
