|Here is the photo of items before we started.|
This project is very popular on Pinterest. We are taking advantage of the dollar store and purchasing candle holders and glassware to make useful containers. I found the one container with the handle at the World Market for $2.99. The one larger dish is from a garage sale, which was chipped but still useful. So the total cost for each piece varies from $1.25 to $4.00 depending on the piece you choose for the top.
|Finding the center.|
Here is my daughter finding the center of the glassware, which is important if you want them to look good. She marked off the area using a dry erase marker then put the center dot in the inside of the container and wiped off the bottom.
The helpful hardware man at Ace suggested the E-6000 glue – works like a charm!
Once you start to glue on you have two minutes to stick the items together and it takes 72 hours for the project to dry completely.
