A couple weeks ago I shared some crafty things I'd been working on. I mentioned that in addition to doing some painting, I had also been doing some "gluing".
I used some Gorilla glue...it seems to be holding tight!
I gathered stuff from stash on hand (I'm determined to make a dent in the stash this year!) for these extra quick and easy projects. Two old brass candlesticks plus two coaster sized dishes equals a couple really pretty cupcake holders! I love that the dishes each had a touch of "golden"...makes them tie in with the brass bases. Besides holding a cupcake, these would also be cute as candle or ring holders too!
For this piece I had to glue together THREE pieces. Quite a leap from the last project, don't ya think!? One old bobbin glued to an old square cake pan, and then topped off with a porcelain knob makes a cute little catch-all! I love looking at all the stuff I've gathered over the years. You never know what "something" plus "something" will become!
Back to a very simple "let's glue two things together" project. This time it's a bit more seasonal. I glued together an old silver cup and a not so old silver tray. The tray says "Season's Greetings"...but a doily will hide that sentiment. A little birthday cake would fit just right on this pretty tray!! Or maybe just a bit of greens and a few vintage ornaments.
Stay tuned for some more "trash to treasures" kind of moments.
I've having fun with all this stuff!
