So I found this platter and had my hubby attach a lazy susan contraption to the bottom of it.
I was so excited about it that I had to make a second one for a friend.
I had already found this tea cup with green flowers above. That got me looking for other green containers. I also got some clear ones- I loved this ice cream sunday glass (on the left), the Mason jar with measurements on it, and this small clear pitcher (on the right).
I bought a gold tray that I primed and spray painted white to be the base.
If you'd like to make on of your own, you need
7-8 different size containers (cups, jars, bowls, or small pitchers)
a lazy susan contraption (bought mine at Home Depot for $5)
a wooden base to put at the bottom of the lazy susan (For my base, I picked up a cheap rectangle wooden plaque-can be found at Hobby Lobby or Michaels)
|Decide which piece you want to be the main one. It will go in the center. I chose this blue pitcher, but it wasn't very tall, so I raised it up by sitting it on this upside down dish.|
|Now you'll start placing the rest of the pieces. My next 2 were matching blue cups, so I placed them on opposite sides of the platter. I suggest laying everything out before gluing to get the spacing correct.|
|Ta-da! A unique organizer for office supplies or craft supplies! All these pieces were found at the thrift store. This is going on a table in my craft room- as soon as I clean, I'll post photos!|
