Hearth and Hand, the Chip and Joanna Gaines collection (from Fixer Upper), came out at Target last week and had everyone all in a tizzy to get their hands on some Magnolia Market inspired decor. Of course, being the blogger that I am, I had to head up to Target myself to see what the hub bub was all about…and I thought the stuff was pretty, but fairly overpriced and something that didn’t go well with my own home. I did, however, decide to purchase a few of their small items like some plaid ribbon and tissue paper because I thought that I could make some pretty Hearth and Hand Inspired Candle or Cake stands for the holidays. I used to make mod podge plates with my grandma as a kid, so I thought this would be a fun gift idea for teachers or coworkers and the stand could be used for candles, cookies, holiday decor and more. Let’s see how easy this is to make….
What you need:
Gloss Mod Podge
Dishwasher Safe Mod Podge
Hearth and Hand tissue paper
Hearth and Hand ribbon
FolkArt Black Acrylic Paint
Candle Stick bases (from Hobby Lobby)
Paint brush, pencil, scissors
1. Start by washing and drying your glass plate well, then tracing a circle about 1-2 inches larger than the plate itself on your tissue paper. Cut the tissue paper out.
2. Next, add a layer of Gloss Mod Podge directly onto the BACK side of the plate. While the mod podge is still wet, gently place your tissue paper face down onto the plate, then use your fingers to press out air bubbles and smooth out wrinkles. The mod podge will make the paper easier to move as the mod podge soaks in, so take the time to make it even. I like to use my mod lodge mat for this…it makes clean up a breeze.
3. Once you’ve finalized your positioning of the tissue paper, use the Dishwasher Safe Mod Podge and add another thick coat directly onto the tissue paper, careful to go up onto the sides of the plate. Then let dry completely.
4. Once dry, trim off the excess paper around the edges of the plate, then if needed, use a low grade sandpaper to sand down any rough edges of paper that are sticking off. Depending on what you’re using this craft for, you can even add a decorative trim onto the edge of the plate with glue if you wanted to (black pom pom trim?! CuTE!).
5. Finally, I picked up some wooden candle stick bases at Hobby Lobby that I used for this project. I painted the base of the stick white, tied a bow with Hearth and Hand ribbon around it, then used glue to glue it to the bottom of the cake plate. Let dry, then add a candle or cookies…give as a gift!
I used a little greenery I had laying around to add a decorative accent to my candle.
