I thought this clear glass bowl (from an estate sale, 50 cents) would be beautiful covered with glass marbles. It took me forever to get this far…the marbles are difficult to glue onto a round surface as they slide off.
I had it probably 75% covered when this happened! The glass just gave way. There was not a crack before I started…but there certainly was more than a crack afterward!
I had a jar that I couldn’t find the lid for and started covering it with the leftover marbles. I had used E6000 to glue the marbles onto the other bowl so I had to toss the whole mess into the trash, carefully!
I taped each row on as I glued it on until the glue was dry. Love the I heart nerds washi tape? Nice, huh? I found it at Claires on clearance 4 rolls for $1! I grouted the jar after the glue had set.
Drum roll please! Here is the finished product!
I love how the light of the candle shines through the marbles.
I made this for Sarah for the August sister present exchange.
I might be linking up to these great parties!
