Glass Holders

Both of these items were easy and inexpensive to make

Under Glass 

I had the glass jar
I believe I paid
$2 for it

I bought birds (2 to a bag)
eggs  and nest for $1 a piece
at Walmart
A handle full of rock
from a bag  that I bought for another project 
(Dollar Tree)

I layered rocks
on an angle then tipped the nest
added the eggs and birds

So for about $5 you can make this

Glass Plate Stand

I bought a glass plate
and a glass candlestick 
each for a $1
at Dollar Tree
The glue E-6000
I got at Walmart 
I believe under $4 

All I did was put glue on the candle stick top and 
inverted it onto the glass plate

the hardest part was to 
leave it alone
and let it dry...

So for $2 and a little bit of glue
you get a really nice cake/fruit etc plate


  1. Luv your little bird cute and thrifty! Hope you have a FUN Monday!


  2. Oh I love the cake stand and I have made several of these as gifts from the dishes at the DT. They look fabulous. Your apothecary jar is wonderful. I love the display. Don't forget to save this pic and use it in the "Spring Cloche Party" coming up on the 2nd of April. Beautiful crafts. Hugs, Marty

  3. Those birds are so cute. But that plate is super clever. It looks like the perfect cake plate.

  4. Thank goodness for 'dollar tree'.... the birds are really nice.....

  5. Great job! Thanks for sharing with Made it Monday! Jules

  6. Oh what a sweet cloche with the birdies -- and a great cake stand too!

  7. Very creative! Do you know I saw a Baltimore Oriel bird just exactly like your faux ones yesterday? Such a pretty little thing!
    Well done!

    Happy Easter!

  8. Thanks so much for joining the party. I love your apothecary jar, and the cake stand. Beautifully done. Hugs, Marty

  9. Jo, I love your apothecary jar, all filled with spring decor! And how frugal, too. I gotta try my hand at making a cake stand- I saw some glass candlesticks at GW yesterday and actually have the glue. Maybe soon, in between all my nursing and house-maid duties... LOL
    Have a Happy Easter, my friend. xo Sue
