4th of July Serving Pedestals

(could that title be any lamer???)

Are you all familiar with The CSI Project? If not, head on over and get familiar!

Every week there’s a theme (schedule here). This week it’s a Dollar Store Challenge.

I wandered around Dollar Tree for a bit last week and came home with a TON of stuff. Most of it won’t see the light of day in time for the challenge, but it forced me to think outside of my usual fabric realm.

I promise some more inspired projects later, but here’s a quick and easy old standby of mine to get you started.

Supplies:
Bowl (Dollar Tree)
Plate or platter (Dollar Tree)
Epoxy (hardware store)

If you’ve never used epoxy before, don’t be scared. It’s just glue that mixes as you squeeze it out.

Turn the bowl upside down and epoxy the bottom of the plate to the bottom of the bowl.

And, for only $2 plus epoxy, you don’t feel too bad if you never use it again.

    That would be so cute with different nuts/candies in the different levels. I can't see how big it is so it might be more appropriate for veggies

  3. The Answer Is Chocolate says:

    Saw these at the CSI challenge and these are great!

  4. Jordee88 says:

    So neat. and you have the abilty to flip it over and use the bowl side, or use the platter side.

  5. Might be good for different kinds of chips and dips… or crackers, cheese, and sausage.

    Love 'em. I love use $ store stuff for outside. If it gets yukky, no big deal to just toss it.

    This Thursday I'm hosting Fab Finds for the Fourth. Any craft, decor, recipe for July 4. Hope you'll stop by and link this up!
