Glass Find ...

Hi Everybody,

So while out shopping a few weeks ago I just happened to spy some glass in the charity shop window and went in for a closer look.

They had some lovely pieces of cut glass that I had an idea that I could use.

It was really cheap and this little lot cost me £7 and because it was a charity shop I gave her £10 and that was a bargain

Each of these bowls cost me 10p and would make a lovely base for .... something !!

I had to buy some really strong epoxy glue to make sure that they stuck and I used it in a well ventilated place too.

Each of these was £1 for the pair and I already had two of the smaller ones at the front, so the ideas for these flowed.

They are going to make me some beautiful candle holders for my dining room table and I am going to dress them up to the hilt.

After playing and seeing which piece of glass goes with which other ....
 ... this is what I cam up with. All dressed up and in my dining room

I sprayed a wooden mirror silver and added the glass candle holders to it and it looks gorgeous.

I am so pleased with this and I will show you more as I complete them.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  8. These look great Christina. Great find. Unfortunately our Charity Shops now charge a lot for any China, glass etc., I was making candles in teacups and used to buy them in Charity Shops but then they started charging abt £5 for a cup and saucer.
