It only took one trip to Value Village to find a cute Cheese Dome for $1.99.
I bought something I planned to use as a base, but when I was getting ready I saw these candle stands that I already had and they looked like they would work even better. So I tried one of them instead.
I glued them together with Gorilla Glue. It took two tries because the first I didn't do enough glue. (It's expanding glue and I'd read about how it surprised everyone so I was over careful.)
After the glue was dry it took a few coats of spray paint, then a little sanding on the cheese plate and some varnish and it looked antiqued a little.
I love how it turned out! I love how fresh it looks with the bright green apples but I look forward to changing it up as desired. I also painted and antiqued the extra candle stand so that it matches, I'm going to pop the green candle on it once it's dry.
