As you know, I am going to have a full house for Easter this year so I am starting now to get all of my decorating ideas done in time.
A while back, my pre-Pinterest days, I saw a post where someone had glued a martini glass and scalloped plate together and then spray painted the whole thing hot pink. Well, I just loved it so much that I had to make some for myself.
I already had some plates so I
hunted like a crazy woman scoured the thrift shops for some goblets in different shapes for the bases. In the process, I also found a jar that had the perfect size lid for a vase I bought years ago at Walmart and a neat looking candy dish (I think). So, here is what I did:
I drew a circle on the bottom of the dish so that I would get the goblet placed exactly in the middle. I also decided that it would be a waste to throw away the jar with the lid. Just because I was using the lid on my vase, didn’t mean that I couldn’t do something with the jar. So, I looked into my stash of candle sticks and found a small one that would go nicely with the jar.
After they were glued with my E6000, I put something on it to weigh it down and then just let it dry.
Now that they are nice and dry, I took them out to the garage and spray painted them. I decided to do the little jar red and then I could use it as a vase for Christmas or Valentines Day.
I have finally completed all of my colorful plates. I just love the bright colors!
And remember the little jar with the lid? The lid fit perfectly on my vase to make a nice apothecary jar and the jar looks so good holding a plant.
Well, one project down. Next I will be making some treat bags.
