May yours be filled with peace, joy, and perhaps, more jewelry!!
This may be a very odd post on a jewelry blog and it starts with a confession.
I love Pinterest! I love adding pins to my boards and lurking around other people’s boards. I do try to limit my time like a good girl should, but I have also come to realize that I pin tons of ‘inspiration’ and ‘DIY’ projects and never get around to making anything.
So…I decided to start off the new year with a little promise to myself.
That I would try out at least one new recipe a month and one crafty-type project a month (not too, too challenging, right?).
Today was the day to try out a craft with these adorable cake/cookie/candy stands. I went to the dollar store and Goodwill to pick up pretty plates, candlestick, ice-cream bowl, and coffee mug. I had some two-part epoxy on hand already.
I think scrubbing off the stickers was the hardest part of this project. Wash and dry everything thoroughly. Turn each plate over and trace around the chosen base with a pencil to mark the placement. Mix up a batch of epoxy and smear on the rim of the base using toothpicks. Place each base on the plate bottom and press down, so that there is a good seal.
Let dry as directed. Easy as pie!
Love, love, love the ability to mix and match the plates and bases. My favorite so far is the one with the coffee mug stand. Not sure if these will be gifts or keepers, but I think I’ll tuck a few in the cupboard to give as gifts.
Wouldn’t one of these be a special present with a batch of homemade scones?
