Glass Angels Cake Cupcake Plate Repurposed Upcycled Handmade
Welcome to LilacsNDreams! Below you will see a couple pictures for some crafty items I am working on tonight. I have quite a few pieces of different glasswares, and I am pushing myself to get busy with creating some things. I have fun repurposing, upcycling, reusing, and making some handmade pieces. Right now I am focusing on some glass angels, some cake cupcake plate pedestal stands, candy and treat stands, snowmen, etc. I am still listing vintage collectibles with my Etsy Shoppe and by July I am hoping to be adding my handmade items to my Shoppe as well. As of right now I am planning a “Christmas in July” because a lot of pieces I am making will be for the holidays. Some of them will be universal to use at different times as well.
These are the angels I have started. They are made from glass chandelier light covers for the body, their heads are made from Christmas ornaments. I am making angel wings that are from ribbon which is drying right now. I like to give things time to dry, and set before I move onto other things/completing. I got ribbon around the one neck, and the other 2 I think will get some colored mini pearls to blend with the ribbon being used for their wings.
This picture shows 2 pieces of hobnail glass that I will be connecting. The perfume bottle appeared to have something at the bottom of the glass. So, I tried doing a light cleaning again to see if it was removable. I had to let it dry thoroughly before connecting it to the plate.
This picture is the completed piece I made. I had another idea for the base with this plate, a good sized heavy glass candle holder, but as I turned the corner at the thrift store I seen the perfume bottle, and just knew I had to put them together.
I hope everyone had a wonderful memorial weekend! I do apologize for skipping a visit with y’all last week. Husband with truck, my own appointments, few measurements for our bedroom to order some things to be updated, course shopping for more vintage collectibles and some glassware to craft with too.
Still without a computer too. Using the new iPad I got before Christmas. I have someone that wants to look at my computer as soon as we can get schedules to work out. Otherwise I have been looking at computers preparing for having to get one. Love the iPad, but there are some things I need the computer for. My website would be much easier to work with, and I could get what I need done to it too. My listings at eBay would be just a little bit easier too. So so sorry, please bear with me everyone.
