Shell Cake Stand

Thou shalt not go to the BBQ with 
your cookies wrapped on a paper plate.
 If you've been here for a while (Bambi!) you may have seen this before. If that's the case, I grovel at your feet and profusely apologize. If not, hit the Dollar Tree and grab a clear plate and three semi-spherical bowls. These are also available at Target for a little more. In addition, you'll need Goop silicone adhesive and themed filler. We're going to a beach party, so I chose sand and shells. How about red, white and blue glass stones, mini flags, or beads? Go nuts!
 Turn your first bowl bottom side up and Goop it.
 Stack the second bowl on top like so.
 Fill with your goodies.

 Position carefully. You aren't going back in.
 Run a bead of Goop around the rim of the bowl.
Invert the third bowl over it.
 Goop.
 Plate.
Done! Back away slowly and let your saucy creation dry. In the meantime, bake some whole wheat oatmeal chocolate chip cookies to cover this with and start imagining the hostess's face when you hand it to her.
You're the hostess?

and I wanna fire up the bbq while I send the mister on a search for goop! Oh, just think of the stuff I could use to fill the sphere with!!

Very cool idea! Where is the recipe for the cookies though? I have all kinds of ideas running through my head for this now. Looks like I am off to the dollar store!

Keri said...

I'll bet you're a hit at every party! Too bad there's not a way to fill it with goldfish (and not kill them). Wouldn't that be funny?

Vonda said...

Another great creation!

Heather said...

What a great idea! Looks like a million bucks...the hostess is sure to be impressed!

I am seriously pondering building a shelf just for all the different seasons and events you can make these for...... :D oh and I have stolen a few more of your brillant ideas. I can't help it I'm a craftamaniac, compelled to steal craft ideas.

Sunny! This is amazing! Every time I've used the "goop" stuff it's been one big hot mess. You did a great job. Thanks for linking up last week to Sew Woodsy! We hope you will join us again tomorrow! :)

You are so clever. I wish I had your imagination! It's an amazing project, but my Goop would probably be running down the side of the bowl.
