Check it Out! After our house fire in 2012, there were only a few items that we were able to save. I had a full 8 piece china set that didn't make it, but some of the wine glasses did. Not a full set, but odd and end pieces. There were some plates and candle stick holders and other pieces as well.
I decided to upcycle them into some usable pieces that I could use for decor in my home.
To create all of these pieces I used E6000 adhesive. It is strong and dries clear. It's also easy to use.
This piece is created using a candle stick holder that can be picked up from the Dollar Tree for a buck and a bowl that previously had a brass stand. The brass didn't survive the fire so I just had a bowl. I simply glued the bowl to the top of the candle stick holder.
This piece is made using a candle stick holder and another bowl. I use it to store stamps in my craft room now. I love it! Again, just glued the candle stick holder to the bottom of the bowl.
This piece was created using a small fish bowl that I picked up for $1 and the left over piece from a vase. This beautiful little piece used to have a little glass top that help small flowers. The top got broken but I saved the bottom. I absolutely love this new piece. It is gorgeous with a teacup candle inside.
And this three tier stand was created using plates and candle stick holders. I simply found the centers of the plates and glued them to the holders. It's perfect for jewelry or for holding items on my desk. I actually made two of them! You could glue the plate to the top of the candle holder alone to create a pretty cake stand as well.
What do you think of my upcycled glass pieces? Do you have any glass pieces you could upcycle?
