I am getting ready to have a little outdoor lunch with a few of my friends. Sort of an end of summer tea. The weather is just perfect outside it’s the in the summer, and before it gets too cold I really want to take advantage of my deck.
I want to set up my table really beautiful, have lots of great food and drink and good conversation. So I’m getting everything ready so it’s just perfect. First i want to show you how I created my centerpiece.
Here it’s beautiful decorative, glass candle holders.
These were made with pieces I found at the dollar store and i’ll show you how easy it is to create these yourself.
Ok so let me show you how I made my centerpiece, and all of these items I bought from the dollar tree. I use about seven of these glass candlestick holders, a large candle Bowl, three of these, and I found these great glass beads that I use as a mosaic around the bowl. I got this from the hardware store this is an epoxy for glass and its really great it binds minds really strong.
You’re likewise going to require a little container to blend the epoxy in, something that you might get rid of and you’ll need a hot glue gun. Ok so currently let’s start. Ok to start just to let you understand the way I made the different sized pieces, the very first level, the first size I used two candlesticks like this up a one on top of the other and a bowl on top like that.
For the next level I utilized the two pieces but in the center, I put the smaller sized candlestick and brought it a level up with the bowl on top and for the biggest sized one, I utilized 3 candlestick holders like that! So let’s begin by binding the glass pieces together, we’ll do the first level a bit there is two options that come together and you’re going to mix it together for 20 seconds.
Smear the glue on top of the very first candlestick, and put the other candle light stick right on top you’re going to ensure it’s lined up. You’re going to sit the bowl on top. Right in the center make sure it’s centered and you’re going to let that sit for about an hour. Ok so the piece set for about an hour and now it’s good and dry, and strong, and bind it together so it’s all set to put the glass beads on. So I wish to make sure that the bowl is truly nice and clean and dry so that the piece of the stick. I’m going to begin with the top and I utilized a hot glue gun and put like simply a little bead. Press it down to spread out the wax out.
Now when you get near to the end of the line, you may discover that two pieces will fit there. So what you wish to do is find a nice big piece and you’re going to Center it in between the two pieces. Ok here is the less piece! There you have it, a lovely glass mosaic candle light holder. That will make a terrific centerpiece on my table. Put some little tea candle lights in the center of each of them light on and actually excellent glittering on the table particularly at night and for something this beautiful you might find in little boutique it will only cost you about fourteen dollars to make.
