This month we’re all about Spring. Or in Michelle’s case since she’s in the southern hemisphere, fall. It may still be raining but the flowers are blooming and that was my inspiration for this month’s spring craft of repurposed cordial glasses and saucers into a pedestal.
They were leftovers from my mother-in-law’s time. The thing is they are not any sort of high quality and you can even see the seams where the two halves of the glass were joined together (not that I know anything about making glass). Anyway I bought them up from the basement and kept them in my overcrowded china cabinet.
By gluing them together like you see below, the similar ends together, I was able to give them height for the next step!
Time to repurpose some of these as well! I glued them to the tops of the cordial glass. And there, I had a pedestal!
Why flowers of course! And a tea light! Here we have almond flowers.
And some more flowers. You can also see a bit of blue on the saucer. I liked the effect that was created when I was too hasty with my paint job so I left it like that.
After I’d finished my project I saw one that looked similar by Sam of Raggedy Bits. Only she didn’t have to go to a basement to find her goodies! She found them at a thrift shop! Sigh… wish we had those here…
Let’s put them on a tray…
Don’t forget to visit Sam of Raggedy Bits, you are going to love her blog!!
And now for the big question. Should I paint the glass pedestals or just leave them like that? Because you all know I can’t leave well enough alone!
