Do you like to.. do it yourself? | One To Nothin'

Do you like to.. do it yourself?

There should be more parties revolving around innocent beverages like tea, and obviously not because I'm opposed to parties revolving around not-so-innocent bevvies, but because I'm a huge fan of tiny cucumber sandwiches, sugar cubes, big hats and DIY-ing the shiz out of things. This particular DIY is brought to you by my talented sister, Britni, who tends to take normal things like thrifted plates and candlestick holders and turns them into beautiful table decorations.
For each centerpiece you'll need three plates (big, medium and small sizes), two candlestick holders and Gorilla Glue. 
From there, glue the candlestick holder to the bottom of the smallest plate and another candlestick holder to the bottom of the medium plate using the glue sparingly (as I know from experience it will bubble up and look diseased if you use too much). Allow them to dry completely before gluing the open ends of the candlestick holders to the centers of the biggest and middle sized plates. In order. Just use your brain, you got this.
Look at that beaut. Fill the plates with pretty things like buttons and flowers or Valentine's Day things like chocolate covered strawberries and edible underwear conversation hearts.

  2. This is awesome! I think it would be so much fun to have parties like this with friends. A little DIY-ing and a little wine sounds like a great night. I've always wanted to do a paint and sip class, but this almost seems like a better option.
