Glass Marble Charger Plate

I came across this great little craft project on that could really add a little sparkle to your next event. It looks like it could be quite the time consuming project, but would be a neat idea to use as candle holder for your centerpiece or use for your guests of honor at your head table.


For our pictured project, we used iridescent glass marbles and cardboard. We glued on a circle of black felt to the cardboard before gluing on the marbles.
Using the plates you’ll use as a guide, cut out a circle in the cardboard or cardstock about two inches larger than the plate. If you are using cardboard, you’ll need to either paint the cardboard (spray paint is faster) or cover it with fabric. Felt is a nice choice for all wine cork crafts because it doesn’t fray. If you are using colored cardstock, you don’t need to cover it as the base is already a nice quality and color


Place the flat glass marbles around the edge of the charger plate. Place them down without gluing them to make certain you have the spacing correct, then glue with a hot glue gun.


Let your glass marble plate chargers dry completely before using. Fortunately, hot glue dries and sets very quickly, so these can be used almost immediately. Have fun with this winter wedding idea craft project!

What’s your Scent?

Before my wedding, I was in desperate need to find a scent that I loved, one that I had never used before, and one that none of my friends or family used. Why, you ask. Well, because I absolutely adore a good perfume and because I wanted something that would bring back good memories of my wedding day. Yes, it’s so very true that something as simple as a scent can trigger memories. Every time I walk into my closet and open up my perfume cabinet, I get a little wiff of Miss Dior Cheri and it takes me right back to one of the best days of my life.

What scent did you wear on your wedding day? What sents bring back good memories for you? I would love to hear some fun stories about smells (ok, dont tell me the gross ones!)
