One thing my house seriously lacks is a really beautiful serving dish to entertain with. I have been dying to make my own to save cash and to be the crafty diva that I am, and I finally did it!
Would you like to know how to make one? It’s super duper easy, I promise!
Here’s What you’ll need:
- A decorative glass plate and bowl (You can buy a smaller plate and use it instead of a bowl. I wanted one I could put dips and such in). I got these at Walmart, they are the Better Homes and Gardens Brand.
- A glass candle stick. I found mine at the Dollar Tree.
- E6000. This stuff is amazing crafting adhesive that adheres anything to pretty much, well, anything!
Begin by making sure all stickers and sticker goo are taken off all glass items.
Lightly touch the bottom of your candlestick to the middle of your plate or where you’ll be placing the candlestick on the plate. Then, add a little more e6000 to both the plate and candlestick. Let these sit for 2 minutes.
Matching up the e6000 glue rings to both the bottom of the candlestick and the top of the plate, press the candlestick firmly and hold for a minute. This is after you’ve waited 2 minutes before adhering surfaces, of course. 🙂
Since you’re never going to see the underside of the bowl, I just applied a bunch of e6000 to the middle of the bottom in the size I needed. I was more careful with the plate because that’s the part you’re going to see, and I didn’t want to be too messy.
Again for this step, wait two minutes and apply the bowl to the top of the candlestick with gentle, even pressure.
Then, allow for it to cure 24-72 hours.
You’re all done!
I love how it turned out! I used it yesterday for serving shrimp spring rolls and sweet and sour sauce. Worked like a charm!
This is one super easy project I would do over and over and over again! As a matter of fact, this may be something I do for Christmas gifts this year.. Hmmmm! 🙂
