Materials List

  • Clear Gorilla Glue
  • Glass jars, bowls, or serving dishes of various heights and widths (from thrift store or you can up-cycle old jam jars etc.)
  • Glass candle sticks of various widths to accommodate the weight, size, and width of your glass bowls


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?

Whether you’re planning a birthday party, a baby shower, or simply styling a seasonal desserts table, pedestal candy jars are a must to take your desserts and candy to new heights. Making your own pedestal candy jars, or apothecary jars as they’re also known, is easier than you think!

For this DIY project we used our new Clear Gorilla Glue, which is incredibly strong, crystal clear, water resistant, non-foaming, and ideal for indoor and outdoor applications. It bonds virtually everything - Wood, Stone, Metal, Ceramic, Foam, Glass, and more. So it’s perfect for this craft project, where we adhered clear glass to glass.

  1. Begin by cleaning all your glassware surfaces well with soap and water. Dry thoroughly, then apply a generous layer of Clear Gorilla Glue to the candle sticks.

  2. Place a glass bowl onto the center of the candle stick and press firmly for a few seconds. Leave to cure for 24 hours before using.

  3. Repeat the gluing process for the smaller candle sticks.

  4. Add a taller vessel/bowl to the center of the candles stick. Let it dry and cure for 24 hours.
