I came across this great little craft project on www.do-it-yourself-weddings.com 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!
