Making things is my passion. I wanted a decor piece that looked vintage and could hold a bird scene. I saw a couple of items at the Dollar Store that I thought would be perfect for this. Let’s see what you think!
Cake Platter and Cloche
The items you’ll need:
black hanging basket
clear glass plate
4” wooden round circle (I purchased this at Joanna’s)
hot glue gun and sticks
spray paint oil rubbed bronze
2 electrical wire fasteners
Begin by painting all the pieces in oil rubbed bronze. Paint the candle stick, plate and round wood disk.
Next, apply the Vaseline on edges and random spots to make it look aged.
Then apply the white paint over all the oiled surfaces. When that dries, remove all the oil with a napkin.
You will be left with the spots where the oil was. Then grab the dark wax and wipe it all over the surfaces.
Next, apply the E6000 to the candle stick.
Center it at the bottom of the plate.
Next, grab the wood piece and the basket.
And apply that with the two electrical wire fasteners.
Glue the knob to the center of the wood circle.
The plate attached to the candle stick should look like this.
This is the basket with the wood disk and knob.
Here it is all finished.
