I had a tube of E-6000 and decided to just go for it. I'm pretty happy with the results, so I decided to show you how it turned out and how I plan to make 13 more cake plates for our tables.
This cake plate was as easy as
1. Candlestick (mine is a pressed glass one from the thrift store)
2. Plate (mine is a pressed glass one from the thrift store)
3. Tube of E-6000 glue (I bought mine at either Michael's or JoAnn's)
1. Squirt the glue onto the top of the candlestick where it is the flattest.
2. Looking through the plate, align the candlestick with the middle of the plate and gently set it in place. (If you goof, you'll have time to reposition it.)
3. Leave the plate to rest on the candlestick overnight. (Seriously, don't try to test the strength of the glue while it's still wet. Just let it do its adhesive magic overnight.)
Here's a look at the finished product:
Yeah . . . I'll let you catch the breath that you lost in wonder of my mad skills (both bargaining and glue-wise). I'm going to finish the rest a week or so before the wedding because they're easier to store separately for the moment. I'm also really excited to pass these along after the wedding, but I may just keep the showstopper above!
