Kitchen Sink Platter

I attend a MOPS group once a month at my church.  It's a great organization and we always have such a great time at each meeting.  We also do a different craft each month (which I love!) and this month's craft was so easy to make and multi-functional.  

My friend, Susan, was in charge of gathering supplies for this craft she was going to teach to the ladies.  She headed to our local Ikea store and picked up some clear glass plates and candle holders for $.99 each.  She measured different colored fabric around the plate and then cut it out using pinking shears.  It gives the edge of the circle a nice design without looking plain.

Grab your plate and cover the bottom with a layer of Mod Podge.  Place your circle over the Mod Podge before it dries and smooth out the fabric.  Next, cover the circle with another layer of Mod Podge.  Be sure to cover the edges very well so you don't have fabric hanging off.  Let it dry.

Finally, glue your candle holder into the center.  These are smaller candle holders that you can double to give height.  I used E-600 glue, but super glue would probably work just as well.

You could easily flip it over and use the stand as a very pretty cake platter.  I've done similar platters with just a decorative plate and candle holder, but never tried fabric before.

However, I saw on Pinterest a way to organize the clutter along your kitchen sink is to use a platter of some sort.  So, I gathered my kitchen supplies that are always sitting out...

...and put them on my new platter!  It will be easy to clean and keeps everything in one place.  I love it!!!  You could also use it by a bathroom sink or tub. Thanks for the craft today, Susan!
