Repurposed Crystal Cake Server

I love the beautiful cake plates I've been seeing in blogland made by so many lovely ladies.  I've wanted to make my own for so long too.  I finally did!

I found some pretty candleholders a couple of years ago  at a sale...
and a some crystal plates with pretty patterns...

I used my good glue which works well because I couldn't find the 6000 one that I've seen used while blogging...and glued the 2 together...

and Voila!..
a new cake plate pretty enough for a pink porcelain rose...
and for my next occasion cake or today yummy buttertarts.  It was too pretty to cover even with paper doilies and certainly pretty enough to sit close to my sewing machine.  I have projects on the go!!

Have you made one for yourself?  Have a lovely day... Judi xoxo

No, I've never made one for myself; I'm too scared/lazy. However, last Christmas, I did buy one on sale for $19. I'm sure your cake plate came for less, you bargain hunter!

I am feeling much better, although I still am unable to go for lone stretches. Johnny and I are therefore unable to travel to our daughter's for Thanksgiving. It's just too much for me, but we have MUCH to be thankful for.

Hi Judi!!! This is gorgeous...and reminds me that I saw some yard decorative spikes made with all kinds of crystal peices...I thought of you immediately when I saw it...let me see if I can find the website...hold on...oh man...I found it...they are called Glass Art Totems. Hopefully the link will work...but these have your name written all over them!!!

Hi Judi, I have made desert plates like these and they always look so pretty. Yours are beautiful. I also use the 6000 glue. Sometimes I can't find it.

Wishing you a happy Thanksgiving with loved ones all around.
Hugs, Jeanne
