Make It Monday - Upcycle Glass into Beautiful Decor Pieces

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?
