I took a trip down to a brand new dollar tree store near where I live. I found the cutest summer bandanas. They are pretty large at 20" by 19" and the colors just scream summer. I walked over to the glass section and picked up a clear glass plate and a small glass candle holder and went home to work some magic.
You'll need your handy dandy Mod Podge for this project: glass candle holder (not pictured below), glass plate, scissors, brush, fabric.
The first thing you'll need to do is cut the fabric around the plate. Place fabric under the plate and pull lightly with one hand and cut with the other hand.
I made mine with a jar and I placed a kitchen towel on top so keep the plate from sliding.
For this cake plate, I want to add a stand. I got the stand at the dollar tree store too. Use Gorilla glue (good for glass). You only need very little glue all around the rim, this glue expands as it dries. It dries within half hour so be sure your plate is dry and ready from the Mod Podge.
After the cake plate was done, I wanted to make a fork holder to match. I cut out some flowers from the fabric and found a gravy jar, washed it and dried it clean. Used Mod Podge to attach the flowers and let dry over night.
I then found some matching ribbon and used a glue gun to attach the ribbon to the jar:
This is the final cake plate and matching fork holder:
Isn't it pretty? I can't wait to go visit my mother in law in a couple of hours and give this to her. She's such a sweet and fun lady, spending just five minutes with her you'll want to add her to your best friends list.
Here's a picture of her and me at a party, sometimes I forget to smile : )
