Well, this is my first Blog, so here we go.
We can call this upcycle or recycle what ever its fun. You can get inspiration to make something from other things in your kitchen or around your house if you just look. I had these items in the cabinets not being used; A plate, candy dishes, small bowl ,vase and a small goblet.
All you have to do is get some liquid nail for your items to stick together. If you need a pretty cake plate or cake server and don't have one, take a look at how easy it is just to make one. Just look in your cabinets, I'll bet you can find several things you can probably use. I just played around with different items to see which ones fit together and looked good. It depends what you want to use it for.
I had a pretty Blue Willow plate and a clear glass candy dish. I turned over the candy dish to make a foot or pedestal for the cake plate or server. Then just sit the plate on top. If it sits well and doesn't wobble, and you like the look, use the liquid nail to glue the two pieces together. See how pretty this match was. Now you have something very pretty for your cake to be served in. Hey, you also can serve your rolls on this. You know Easter is next week. Just think of the possibilities waiting to be created in those cabinets. Or better yet, just go to a Thrift store or garage sale and look around. Things will start looking different to you.
Again, I wanted something to use to put nuts or candy in. People like to munch on something before lunch or dinner while we visit. This is where I had the green bowl and
and a goblet, even the vase will do. Look how this is cute together. I just made sure the two fit together firmly with no wobbling. Just get the old handy liquid nail out and go for it, glue, glue, glue.
This is a different way they can go together. You can turn the clear up or green up.
These are the two items I ended up gluing together and using for a cake server and candy or nut dish. Now I have two pretty handmade treasures.
Ok, now go looking around your house and see what you can find without buying anything to make something new.
