This is my latest Pinterest inspired project. I made if from my wedding china, but I also have a mix and match set of cups and plates I will be doing another one from. I used a dinner plate on the bottom, a dessert plate in the middle and a saucer on top for a tiered affect.
The only issue I ran into was my glue. The tutorial I read said to use super glue...it did not work. What did work for me is Epoxy. I got Locktite 5 min self mixing epoxy. You can find it in the glue section at Home depot, which is near the paint. It sets up in 5 minutes and holds fabulously.
Just run a little line of epoxy around the edge of the cup (either bottom or top) and stick to appropriate side of the plate. I let mine sit overnight to really set up and you are done. Fast, Fabulous and Fun!!!!
