Happy Labor Day..






I saw this great 15 sec tutorial at Dollar Store Crafts...on how to make an apothecary jar for $2.  I thought it was/is an awesome idea.  
I will have to pick up some of those jars next time.  
This trip, I decided I wanted to make some smaller serving dishes for Halloween 
(great for little hands).  


I went a little nutso...(the black buckets are for another project)



I already had Gorilla Glue so I got to work...
the 'stuff' in the vases are to add some weight..to help the GG hold.

 After a few hours...I had these really cute serving dishes 
that sorta look like giant wine glasses (bonus!)


this is my fave

I love that these can be used for any celebration...
and you guessed it, they all cost $8.00

Fabulous idea! At first, I saw the photo before reading the post and thought, "Hm. Wonder what's up with the baked beans in a glass?" Ha!

WOW! Talk about spooky! I just found the dollar store crafts site (and saw the same tutorial) and am in the process of making the same thing - and some cake/dessert stands.

Of course, I guess that our two GREAT minds think alike!! I'll hopefully be posting pics soon.

Don't you just love this idea?? I made a few a couple of weeks ago but have yet to fill them. I like how you added ribbon to yours. (Ding-ding...maybe I'll do the same!

LOVE IT! Definitely keeping this in mind for future decorating ideas! I've seen someone make cake stands using candle holders with plates glued on top. Gotta love a dollar store! Thanks for sharing!
