I saw this idea in Better Homes and Garden and tweaked it a little bit...Using a unfinished wooden candlestick and a pre-cut plaque (any craft store sells these for just a couple of dollars) you can create beautiful pedestals for anything from pumpkins to candles....I choose a beveled plaque but you can you cake rounds or any other pre-cut shape....simply paint the wood, hot glue together and cover the top with scrapbook paper & can also attach decorative trim around the edge to if you have a thing for frills! For a seasonal decoration choose paper that matches your decor. If you plan on using heavy items on top (or a glass cloche), you can glue a small round disk to the bottom of the candlestick to make a wider more stable base....

This was a very tall very ugly 70's candlestick that I found at a thrift store, so I painted it black and it usually holds a candle but for this spooky time of year, it made the perfect perch for my fake pumpkin!

Power pedestal is very ideal on various types of environment. It offers the best ways of load adjustment; with no need to exert too many efforts during the height adjustment. It usually employs advanced technology with the use of specialized gas to regulate the desired height; and the height locking system may also automatically lock the set height in an instant.
