|One of my cake plate creations|
Actually, I really think this idea is pretty, and of course, easy!
|Only 3 items needed|
All you need is a pretty candlestick (must be pretty weighty, and preferably vintage), a vintage porcelain plate, and some glass glue (I use Glass Metal & More).
IMPORTANT: DO THIS IN A WELL VENTILATED ROOM, OR OUTSIDE!
Make sure the bottom of the plate is clean, and the same with the top of the candlestick. But a glob of glue in the center of the plate and also on the top of the candlestick (not too much or you'll have a gloppy mess). I take a paper towel and dab around the edges to be sure there's not a bunch of blue all over the plate.
|I chose this beautiful blue candlestick and vintage Bavarian plate|
Press the two pieces together lightly. It may seem like there's no way that this is going to stay glued, but check it in 24 hours, and you'll see, it is solidly in place! I have a few that I made a few years ago, and they're as good as new! In fact, I've sold a few of these!
