    Hi Irene yes, I use clear silicone probably the most. I have used e6000 and it is too runny for me. I have tried other stuff but always come back to clear silicone because I know how it works etc.

    It only takes a pvc pipe that the handle of a spoon will fit inside maybe a 1/2" pipe. If you use a spoon with the bowl flattened you can bend the handle easily to make the flower be in the position you want it to be when you look at the plate. When it

    Terry M Irene How tall are you making these? They look like about 2 feet high? Hubs may have time tomorrow to cut the piece of pvc, and then I will glue them on. I am still concerned about water spotting and mineral buildup.

    I hadn't thought about water spotting or mineral buildup. But probably a cloth with some lime away would take care of that. I think the pvc could be 2' or 1 1/2' maybe even 18" high. If it was in a pot with some flowers it would be cute with a small

    I made some of these, too. I used glass paint on the back side of clear cut glass dishes and it really gave it a new demension. I love these. My husband doesn't get it, though.

      Terri Could you recommend a glass paint. I have been making plate flowers and have some clear glass items I would love to color, but not sure what to get. I want it clear to just color the glass, not an opaque. Thanks.

    These adorable plate flowers do add whimsy to the garden. My Daughter-in-law and Son made them for me for Mother's Day. I love them, have them in potted plants. I think of them whenever I am out, and one is in a container on my porch, so I see it all the

    These are such great fun to make and shopping garage sale/thrift stores to find the pieces is a blast! I have tried several glues and not been happy with any for one reason or the other. Locktight superglue for glass leaves a white residue between pieces

      Kelly S I used the E6000 from Dollar General and had good luck, it very little on my flowers and I even used those glass(various colors) to accent a few.
