Soooo while on vacation, Mr. S and I discovered the world's coolest stemware; the "Rednek" Wine Glass. Or, as I like to call it, the Redneck Libation Dispensing Device. It's like a fancy mason jar. I am for real, but it is so silly, it deserved an April 1 posting! This is one of the glasses we bought:
The first step? Sanding. We sanded for just a couple seconds with 100 grade sandpaper on both the bottom of the jar and the top of the candlestick. This way, the glue will sink into the scratches and form a stronger bond.
Then, mix and apply the epoxy.
Our epoxy was quick-setting, so we had to apply it fast, just on the tip of the candlestick.
Then flip it upside-down and center it on the bottom of the jar.
Then, leave the glasses as-is to dry. Ours set up in 15 minutes, and were totally dry after an hour.
Then I dressed them up a little bit for gift-giving. What a great use for my scrap fabrics! I was also having trouble figuring out what to do with my poofy ball trim. Add a tag, and some care instructions, and it's fit for a present! Well, a silly present, but seriously, we drink out of ours all the time!
And a hint at what has been going on in my living room (more coming soon!):
