Completed Candle Holder

I have finally finished my plate candle holder!  I love it and Thursday I found some itty bitty red ball ornaments to decorate it with.  I posted back on 11/28 (a couple weeks ago) some of the work in progress.  Are you ready??

I have a little tea lite candle in the top glass.  I need to get a votive or even a flame-less candle and maybe add a glass ball on top. Oh, all 3 clear glasses match which I think helps with the flow.  I tried a crystal goblet but it just didn't look right.  I may use it between the last 2 little salad plates.... Still thinking about that.

I added a small bit of gold tinsel garland then some of the balls.  The bottom plate can hold cookies, candy, whatever.  I used E6000 glue since this is for indoor use only.  I can decorate this for any season and I get to look at my grandma's special dishes whenever I want.  I think this was a pretty good use of them.  What do you think?
