Sarah Winward sent over this great tutorial inspired by the stone platters she used for her sister’s Organic Rustic Wedding feature earlier in the week. I think these rock platters are a great new alternative to using tree stumps on dessert tables for people who want to incorporate a natural element into their displays. I found that the color and texture of the stones complimented most foods really well. Or you could use them to display favors, pictures, or event just personal items at home like jewelry.
Large flat rocks. sturdy bigger rocks that have a flat surface good for mounting the top on, Gorilla Glue.
You might be able to find stones like this around your home. You can also purchase them from home improvement stores.
1. Select your rocks. If you are making multiple platters it might be nice to make them at different heights.
2. Wash all of the surfaces of your rocks, leave the surfaces that the glue will be on slightly damp.
3. Spread gorilla glue on the parts of the rocks you will be glueing together. Be sure to not put glue closer than 2 inches away from anywhere it could ooze out. It expands and it dries, and you don’t want to see the glue coming out of the seams.
