Another Dollar Store Project...

Here is one more reason to head to your local Dollar Tree (the true everything is $1 store):

This 3 tiered stand of bowls was made using 3 glass bowls and 2 candleholders from Dollar Tree. Grand total = $5. I also made a 2 tier version in case the 3 tier is a little big for your needs... I've mentioned I am a fan of tiered things, right?

This is the kind of candleholder you are looking for

The kind of glue you want to use. The Amazing E-6000. It is wonderful and will hold up longer than hot glue.

"What would I do with something like this?" you say...
Some ideas using your new tiered bowls:

This 2 tier version (only costs $3) can hold pencils, pens, post-it notes, tape, etc.
All manner of office supplies to organize your desk.

A place to put your jewelry.
Who needs a fancy jewelry box when you can use this beauty?

A great addition to your guest bathroom to hold small travel size bottles of lotion, shampoo, body wash, etc. What a nice touch to help your guests feel pampered!

My personal favorite - candy!

Other options:
- A catch-all for the contents of your husband's pockets.
(keys, loose change, gum, pocket knife, cell phone)
- Serving bowls for munchies like pretzels, peanuts, and party mix
as your watching the football games on your big screen.
- A place to store hair bows and clips for your daughter
that will look nice on your bathroom counter.
The possibilities are endless!
What would you use your tiered bowls for?
