Glass flower art... easier than I thought!
Select your glassware, plates, candle holders, at flea markets. Can be slightly chipped. Nothings perfect. :) Wash & dry & run some rubbing alcohol over them with a Q tip, just to make sure they're really clean of any debris.
Some you may like painted solid..
Some you may like stained. The stained church window look. Watch for puddles! Let dry 24 hrs. Also adhere your candle holders etc. where you'd like them. With E6000.

Now apply your hockey puck, w/ a 1/2" hole drilled, 1/2 way up the side, to hold your stem. OR 1/2 " plumbers bell hanger -found at Lowes. I tried both. Adhere w/Loctite Marine glue, Or E6000. NOTE: Before glueing.. Make sure you know how you want your flower to look on the stem. The glue is permanent. Let dry 24 hrs.
STEM & handiest little tool EVER created! A RIDGID tension soft pipe cutter. Ask hubby or hardware employee to show you how EZ it is! Cut your 1/2" copper rod to the length you desire. NOTE: These are kind of heavy when you get them assembled, so pounding them into the ground a good foot or so will be adequate. Some even pound a rerod, then the copper pipe over that. -Lowes
Use your RIDGID pipe cutter to cut your leaves after you carefully form them. Simply spot weld to the stems. I got 8 leaves per roll of soft copper tubing. 5.99 -Lowes.

They can stay out in rain or wind. I plan on bringing mine in for the cold Mich winters. Just because.
Now... Which to give to my MIL?? Hmmm?

    People are so crafty. I love crafts as well, I'll have to try this up in Canada where I live. You ladies could all share your plates to get a variety going in your gardens. There is no end to our imaginations. Love it
