Hi everyone. Here is a DYI project I have seen many times. I enjoyed the idea so much that I wanted to share. I started with 2 dinner size plates, 3 small plates, some clear dessert-type cups, and clear candle holders. I acquired these items at the thrift store. You can use new or old, I happen to like the old floral dishes. For construction I suggest using E 6000 Glue from Michaels or another craft store. You'll need to figure out the best arrangements. I chose similar plates-one large and one small, one dessert dish, and one candlestick for each set.
These are all my choices.
|This is the first set I put together.|
|This is the second set I liked together. The plates both had some gold trim in them , so they went together well. (Later I found a gold finial from an old lamp that I added to the top).|
|Here is the finished arrangement for this set with the gold finial. Again , I turned both the dessert cup and candlestick upside down.|
|This is the dome off of the set.|
|Here is the final outcome after everything is glued. I can see these at a wedding buffet or bed and breakfast, holding cupcakes, truffles, or little tea sandwiches|
This is so so easy to do and gets rid of those random dishes laying around.
