In case you missed this over at Fancy Little Things...
I've got a super easy project to share with you all today. I love going to thrift stores and finding old things that can have new lives. So when I found some mini wine glasses (do they have an official name??) at the Salvation Army, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them.
What we're making today:
Isn't it cute?? I've been seeing these all over Pinterest, and have been dying to make one. Most of the ones I've seen are made out of 3 plates, but I liked the idea of putting a bowl on top. Perfect for little chocolate goodies, or conversation hearts, or whatever you want!
What you need:
The 3 layers of your tray
Something to go in between the layers. I used the glasses, candlesticks would work too!
Heavy duty glue: I used E-6000
Note: When buying glass from the thrift store, check for stickers of an unknown age and origin. This little bit of stickum took me FOR.EV.ER to get off!
Now all you have to do is line up your layers and get to gluin'!
I have that heart shaped plate in the middle, so I knew that one was going to be a little off kilter. To keep everything lined up, I started out by gluing the glasses onto the bottom plate, and the bottom of the bowl first. Those had centers, so I knew things would line up. Then I sandwiched the heart plate in the middle, made sure everything was ready to go, and then glued!
That's it...done! See? I told you it was easy!
Some notes about E-6000:
It STINKS! Definitely do this project in a well ventilated area...outside if you can.
It is not an immediate seal, so you can move things around until they're in the right spot...very nice!
It dries clear.
Once it's dry, you can either rub or scrape off any excess on your plates, so no worries about mess ups!
There you have it...your own little treat tray!
Mine is already full of my favorites...
I'm linked up! Come play with me!
