Decoupage Glass Goblet Dish Stand - A Dollar Store Craft

It's that time again for our Monthly Challenge Blog Hop!

I've joined a group of creative bloggers to bring you a monthly challenge blog hop. On the 2nd Monday of each month we share our themed creations for the month.  For March, it's a Dollar Store Craft!  And who doesn't love creating something awesome using items from the dollar store! 

  For this month's theme, I've created a unique spring decorative goblet dish stand using napkins, a clear glass plate, goblet, and mod podge - all from the dollar store.
In addition, I used:
alcohol wipes
paint brush
plastic wrap
Loctite super glue gel

 I know you've seen several ways to decoupage napkins on plates and create display stands, but using napkins on the inside bowl of the goblet and plate stand definitely gives it a unique looking decorative touch - especially with
dollar store items!

 Let's begin by cleaning the plate and goblet with soap and water, drying them off and then wiping down with alcohol to remove any lingering skin oils or debris. I'm so glad to find the plain glass plates, bowls and cups once again at the Dollar Tree! These are definitely a crafter's delight!
Next, separate the plain white layers of the paper napkin from the printed portion that we will be using.
Then apply an even coat of Mod Podge over the back of the plate.
(sorry for the sloppy paint look - I cleaned it up after I took the picture)  
Center the napkin over the plate to find the best design or layout and lay it down on top of the glue. Use plastic wrap to smooth out any wrinkles. Be sure to press firmly down around the rim of the plate to get a good seal. 
Gently remove the plastic wrap - being careful not to lift up the napkin. If you still see any major wrinkles, dip a finger in mod podge and gently try to smooth the wrinkles out. There will be a few wrinkles left because of the curvature of the plate - but not to worry since they just add more character and charm to the design!
Allow the decoupage to dry completely for several hours or overnight.
Once dry, trim excess paper off, first using scissors and  .  .  .
then with sandpaper, filing down and away from the plate rim.  Seal plate with additional coats of mod podge.
 For the goblet, cut designs from the napkin to glue onto the inside bowl with mod podge .  .  .
and also on the bottom glass base of the goblet.  Let dry, trim with scissors and sandpaper and seal with more mod podge, as before. Let dry completely.
This technique of not adding paint to the back gives a somewhat transparent look to the plate and goblet, which I really like.
 The design is quite beautiful even looking at the goblet upside down.
To connect the plate and goblet, apply Loctite Super Glue Gel to the rim of the goblet and center the plate on top. Place a heavy object on top of plate to weigh down the plate and goblet together until the glue dries.

This design idea makes a lovely statement for spring and summer dining entertainment or decor!
So dainty, bright and cheery!
