Oops, it’s February 13th. Have you been stumped for a gift that’s sweet or funny but not overly gooey? Maybe want something that is a little more original than chocolate or flowers? Get in your car and get to the craft/hardware store and let’s get to it. Here’s a super fast and simple idea for the “red neck wine glass” and the same idea as a catch-all (or jewelry stand).

 

materials

MATERIALS:
-E-6000 glue (available at most hardware/craft stores)
-a [mason] jar
-a candle stick holder
Optional:
-a plate
-other glass bowls/jars

STEPS:

step1

1. Decide how you want your thing to look (if you’re going for the catch-all). The “wine glass” is pretty straight forward.

step2

2. Run a good bead of E-6000 along the lip of the candle stick.

step3

3. Put your jar/plate/whatever you decided on top. (Repeat if you’re doing a catch-all.)

4. Let it cure for 24 hours. You can help speed up the process by using a hair dryer on LOW. Do not aim the heat directly at the glue.

5. Gift it. Enjoy!

Tips:
-Try thrift shops or dollar stores if you don’t already have candlesticks and jars on hand
-Fill it with candy or love letters or a terrarium
-Use candlesticks with wide bases to increase stability
-Don’t mess with it while it’s curing/drying
-Use a plate and candle stick to make a cake stand
