Do It Yourself Serving Dish

Friday after work I made a stop at the Dollar Store. Just to see to look around. Yeah right. I looked around plenty and spent plenty of dollars! I found lots of goodies and my creative juices were at a peak. I found a candle stick and a round glass container that I liked. I put them together and came out with a simple one of a kind candy dish. Take a look!

Sweet!

I picked up this Heirloom White spray paint at Hobby Lobby which is conveniently next door to Dollar Tree.

Players in the spray painting game.

I painted one and decided to keep the other one the Oil Rub Bronze color for different decor needs. I bought this 9001 multi strength adhesive at Hobby Lobby  and I was not sure if it would work or not but I gave it a go.

It did not go so well. It started to eat the paint and was a little to drippy for this project.

Luckily I had picked this up at Wal-Mart after my Dollar Tree trip. My “buy it just in case”  worked out. This E-6000 Industrial Strength Adhesive worked great! The label says Amazing and it is! I let it dry for a couple of hours and it dries clear.

I am happy with results and it holds up very well. I’ve tipped it upside down and rinsed it with cool water. It held up to the test! I am using the white one now as an Easter candy dish but there are so many other things it can be used for which makes it even better.  I found other great Dollar Store finds that I will share so come back for another visit soon!

It’s all good ~ Donna
