Finds for miniature table bases

These are just a few of the things I've used for making tables.  Look especially for egg holders, but also sometimes beads will work and I especially love using chess pieces as well.

Usually I make the table tops of clay but the coaster (looking lopsided) on the top egg stand was a garage sale item, used only to show it's possible.

Other things I've used, other than clay or wood, are cake decorations, candle holders, lamp parts, elephants (as you'll see on my clay blog) and various wedding supply items, to name but a few.


  1. Excellent idea using egg holders. I would have never thought of that. Guess I start keeping an eye out for them.

  2. I have lots of stuff like that waiting for a use. I guess I should put a few aside for table bases. :-)

  3. If you don't want to make the table tops of poly clay, you can use coasters, tiles, etc. So yes, organize those things and wait or do table tops. :)
