This simple craft is FUN & INEXPENSIVE! You can put these together as serving pieces for your holiday gatherings this season, or give them as gifts with a homemade Christmas treat on top! What I loved so much about this craft is it took me less than 30 minutes (I made 4) and all of my supplies came from the dollar store and the glue came from either Walmart or a local hardware store! Listed below are the supplies you’ll need and a few recipes that you can bake and serve on your new platter 🙂
The Holiday’s have always been about giving for me, and this craft is something affordable I can put together and it is a nice gift to give to someone that invites you to a holiday party or even for someone to take home with them from your own gathering! I made these four platters to serve goodies on for my Holiday Open House which took place last weekend. This open house event had an amazing turn out, we hosted close to 40 guests! There was an oils education portion, free zyto-scans were done for anyone with some curiosity, and we had a nice spread of snacks made with essential oils for our guests to enjoy. Not only did we have the class and zytoscans available for people to use, we put together over 30 gift baskets for individual purchase on that day. We made up gift baskets that had a mixture of dōTERRA products and oils, with homemade sanitizer, room spray, chap stick, bath salts, and neck wraps! The gift baskets were a hit! My intentions for having them for sale were so that guests that were already members could get some ideas of what they can do with their extra products, and for new guests that wanted to do some holiday shopping! Thanks again to everyone hat came out and made this years Holiday Open House a success!
Supplies for Holiday Serving Platters
- Plate from dollar store (I bought 4, each had a different design, you can be a creative as you wish)
- Candle Stick from the dollar store (I bought 4 -each were clear glass and about 4 inches tall)
- 1 Epoxy Glue Stick (This is fast drying- very strong bonding glue)
How To make your Serving Platter:
- If possible rough the two surfaces that you will be joining by the glue with rough sand paper. If you can not, don’t panic, I didn’t even attempt to rough the surface before I applied the glue. This is suggested to ensure that you create the tightest bond between the two object with the epoxy glue. Make sure the surfaces are wiped clean before you start
- Flip the plate face down so the bottom is up and you can center the candle stick.
- Using the Epoxy glue coat the top rim of the candle stick with glue
- Place on the center of the bottom of the plate. You will have a little time to make adjustments before the glue hardens but try to be as accurate as possible with your first attempt.
- Leave the place facing down for a few hours while the glue drys. Make sure the glue is 100% dry before turning over and using as a serving platter
- Enjoy sharing your craft with your friends and family this holiday season!
