I also purchased a brand new looking plant with metal pot holder and a small mismatched plate, but it was currently drying from its paint job as I was taking this picture... I couldn't wait : ). I have an idea for each one. Very exciting.
So first project at hand is the Jute Cloche I made. I love it. I used the red candle/vase thing in the picture above, the glass cover for the cheese ball tray and the plate that isn't shown.
I already had the jute (or twine) along with the glue and spray paint. I spray painted the plate with an antique white so I could use it in my kitchen, white was just TOO bright. Next I wrapped the red candle in the jute/twine string.
Honestly, it didn't take me long. I started using the gorilla glue, but it doesn't dry fast so I used my back up tacky glue with gorilla glue so when it dried there would be the extra hold. I finally got that wrapped and secured my ends with just a little extra glue.
Next I placed the plate on top and flipped it over. I traced a circle around the top of the candle so I would know it was centered. Placed glue on the rim of the candle and placed it on the plate. Flipped it over to dry and stuck the glass over on top and this is what you get.
I've very happy with it. And I can always change the color of the plate when I change my mind. : )
