Rosie's Plate Stand!

My Girlfriend Rosie makes the Most MAGNIFICENT 
hair accessories! 

Here is a link to her ETSY Ribbons and Rockabilly …

I wanted to surprise her and make her a Kick ass display plate stand to go along with her Kick ass Accessories! 

Here is what you will need to make your VERY own!

˙MOD POGE (MY FAVORITE!!!!)
˙Paint brush˙PLAIN glass plates/Little pitcher/Carafe for the base˙E-6000˙Glitter blast Spray˙Paint to match your glitter blast
˙BAD ASS Image for your plate
˙Scissors
˙Little Doo-hickies for showing off! ( SHE LOVES Dice)



Now, We Start!
Cut out your image, and MOD PODGE it to the back of your plate…

Let dry for about 15 mins…
(Don't worry, it will all be covered up in reverse!)


While its drying, fill up your little base with your findings!!! (SO FUN)


After your plate has dried, now SPRAY!!! 
GLITTER that UP!!!!


(As you can see, It is kind of "Spotty", 
so thats why you paint the back the SAME color as your glitter…)

˙WATCH˙


•BEEEAUTIFUL•


When you E-6000 the base to the plate, make sure you have something HEAVY on it!





All Done!
Look at the NEAT stuffings!



Ain't She a BEAUT!

Let me know if you have any questions & CRAFT on!!!

Mix in Water with your glue...



Paint on a THIN layer onto your glass piece for your starting off point…




add one of the TORN pieces and brush on MORE of your Glue water

KEEP GOING…



LAYER and LAYER until all covered...



NOW… Let dry for about a couple of hours….

Pick your image… (I LOVE pre and post GEMMA ;) )


~~~Brush on… REMEMBER THIN layers~~~
