Agates and Geodes are Trending for 2017…. AGAIN !
Here’s How They Can Rock your Interior Design Dreams!
They have been “What’s Hot” for a couple of years now and they are not going anywhere this year! Also Trending with Agates, Geodes are Crystals and any natural elements such as Cork and Botanicals but that’s another post entirely! Today we are going to look at a few fabulous and frugal ways to use Geodes in your Design!
Common Uses For Agates are
Geode Slices in Frames
This is pretty easily done. I find my Agate and Geode slices inexpensively at Amazon (see link at bottom of post) and Michaels. Yes! I said Michaels! If you don’t know where to find them at Michaels see my Geode Slice Napkin Ring Tutorial to find out my secret!
Pssst! These can commonly be found at Marshalls for about $20.00 a set!
I totally scored this beauty on clearance for $5 at Hobby Lobby! #FrugallyFabulousFind!

Blue Agate Plate Stand Tutorial #FrugallyFabulousFind
Here we have a small metal plate stand that can either be bought at Michaels or Hobby Lobby for about $1.99. They come in several sizes to accomodate any plate or size of Agate Slice.
I have my favorite Loctite Glue (this stuff is Fabulous and no, they are not paying me to say that!) There is an Amazon link below the post to purchase it and I do receive a small commish, at no cost to you, if you use my link but I really love it and use it for everything!
An Agate. Any size you like but make sure the plate and stand you are using does not over power it. large stand requires a large Agate or even several can be used!
Apply the Loctite Glue along the front edge of the stand that is facing out. Don’t worry, it is really thick and rarely runs. You won’t need to use much!
I lay the Agate Slice with my favorite side down flat on a surface that will not be harmed if a bit of glue gets on it. Then I lay the front of the stand with the glue on it flat against the back of the slice and prop it against something that will not let it slide. Let dry and ……..
