the pieces from Dollar tree.

I glued the candle stick to the dish for the base and the glass star marble to the bowl for the lid.

It's adorable with the flickering tea lite.  The total cost for one is $5. Two would only cost $7.
Perfect at each place setting for a little tea party or birthday. Petit Fours not included. Smiley

That looks like a really neat idea. Any chance of some pics on a darker background? it's a little hard to make out all the details Smiley.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

Or larger pics. From what I can see, I think this is very cute.

I have a split personality, because you guys crack me up.  AND The best day I ever had was TODAY!

Very pretty! They would make nice gifts for Christmas, even using different colored glass too!

I used the $1.00 clear glue from the Dollar Tree household aisle---it's almost a cement caulk type or like an epoxy. It's kind of awesome for $1.00. I don't have any of the pieces or stand with me. I wish I did take better pictures. The next time I'll be better prepared!

I made something similar to this as center pieces for my wedding, and they moved very well from the wedding to household decorative pieces. I still have them out in my home and so do my mother and mother-in-law. Mixing up the various glass pieces is fun.

This is pretty, and I agree that they would make good gifts. They are versatile because you can add flowers or candles in different colors to change the look. Nice job Smiley

Very pretty, and perfect for petit fours! If my mom ever opens the tea room she's been dreaming of, I'll remember these. Smiley
