Glass Marble Charger Plate - A Winter Wedding Idea

Here is a great winter wedding idea to dress up your wedding reception tables. This glass marble charger plate project is simple to do and adds a lot of bang for your buck. It does take a bit of time though, so you may want to consider creating a marble charger plate for under the centerpiece of your tables only. This is especially the case if you are having a very large winter wedding or if you are starting this project late.

Although called a winter wedding idea, these marble charger plates would be beautiful for any time of the year, just change the color of your fabric, cardstock and marbles! The flat glass marbles can be purchased at a craft store or online and come in many colors such as red, blues, greens, yellows, clear, iridescents, black and more so you are sure to find something to work with your wedding colors.

For our pictured project, we used iridescent glass marbles and cardboard. We glued on a circle of black felt to the cardboard before gluing on the marbles.

Using the plates you'll use as a guide, cut out a circle in the cardboard or cardstock about two inches larger than the plate. If you are using cardboard, you'll need to either paint the cardboard (spray paint is faster) or cover it with fabric. Felt is a nice choice for all wine cork crafts because it doesn't fray. If you are using colored cardstock, you don't need to cover it as the base is already a nice quality and color.

Place the flat glass marbles around the edge of the charger plate. Place them down without gluing them to make certain you have the spacing correct, then glue with a hot glue gun.

Let your glass marble plate chargers dry completely before using. Fortunately, hot glue dries and sets very quickly, so these can be used almost immediately. Have fun with this winter wedding idea craft project!

It's your wedding, do it the way you want!
