When we do dyed eggs for our grandchildren I always end up making deviled eggs to go with our Easter ham or leg of lamb. I love to set a beautiful table so I decided this year I was going to try and make myself an elevated egg stand. This is a quick and easy project with parts that I bought a my local thrift store when they had a 50% off sale. The total was 3.00 dollars total.
I chose clear glass because this way I could also use my egg stand when ever I did a buffet, but if you wanted to use a ceramic egg tray and a ceramic bowl or cup that would contrast or match one of the colors in your egg tray you could do that too. You just need to make sure that the base is large enough to support your egg tray.
Time to complete: 10 minutes plus drying time
This will need to be hand washed as it will not be dishwasher safe. Use the wired ribbon to make a bow for the base if you like.
Very nice. You could also do this with a dinner plate and make a cake plate.
i do this with things from the dollar store and i also do this with tea cups and saucers i just use epoxy in a pinch i use hot glue if it comes aopart i figure i can always reglue!!!!!
Thanks for the great idea! I found the glass items at a thrift store for 35c each and I had some colored glass marbles I put in the sundae glass to give it a little flair. Used it at a small get together and got rave reviews! Thanks again!
Great idea, I have made several of these standing platters using the same method, I sometimes stack them for tea parties, use them at holiday times and I always keep one on my counter for fruit or pie or cake.
