Anyway, that's my excuse for only being on Project #3. However, with only 11 days until Chanukah (eeek!!), I'll just work a little faster...
This project is a Menorah Platter made from a plain charger.
It's great to place your menorah on,
and the platter will catch all that candle wax
while saving your nice maple furniture.
You'll see this one matches Project #2, the Menorah Candle holder.
Start with a silver charger. This one has a beaded border.
(bought a set of six at Bed, Bath & Beyond for less than $10)
You only need a few materials: decorative paper,
iridescent alphabet stickers, flourish stickers and silver or blue rhinestones.
Cut a circle 8-1/4" in diameter.
Using Mod Podge, adhere the paper to the center of the charger. Let dry.
This paper is very light blue
with the words to the song "I have a little dreidel" written on it.
Next, decide what words or phrase you want on your platter.
In the earlier photo, I used "Happy Chanukah".
This one reads,
"Harmony, Love, FAMILY."
Add the other stickers and rhinestones.
Then apply Mod Podge over the entire charger.
Don't worry -- it will dry clear!
Here is the completed Menorah Platter, using my first example.
You'll have to trust me on the Harmony--Love--Family platter.
It dried beautifully.
Just didn't get a photo of it before my camera battery went kaput.
