Whether you're planning a birthday party, a baby shower, a wedding or simply styling a seasonal desserts table, pedestal candy jars are a must to take your desserts and candy to new heights. Literally!

These pedestal glass vessels have become a must-have in all desserts tables we encounter nowadays, but they can be quite pricey. So we decided to make our own to show you that you don't need to break the bank to create a stunning display for your next party!

And they make great Mother's Day DIY gifts too, don't you think?! 😍

Come to think of it, these gorgeous jars would make great wedding or bridal DIY gifts too! What's not to love?! 😍

The idea of this craft project is to glue any glass vessel to a glass candle stick to create a chic display pedestal jar. So you can totally up-cycle any empty glass jars you may already have at home. The glassware and candle sticks used in this project were thrifty finds!

For this DIY project we teamed up with Gorilla Glue and used their new Clear Gorilla Glue, which is incredibly strong, crystal clear, water resistant, non-foaming, is ideal for indoor and outdoor applications and bonds virtually everything - Wood, Stone, Metal, Ceramic, Foam, Glass and more.

So it's ideal for this craft project, where we're adhering clear glass to glass, which a non-clear overspill would be a challenge and wouldn’t look so great!

Plus, Clear Gorilla Glue doesn’t foam or expand as it cures, making it great for this project. After all, these candy jars need to look their best to enhance your party tables, right?!
