I made flowers out of various dishes and china. Plus metal pipe and I have really cute flowers!

Using window caulk instead of glue, just caulk pieces together. Add a flattened silver spoon to the back so the handle can go down in the hollow pipe to make them into flowers for you garden art!

    I have made slot of these and epoxy glue seems to be the only thing that holds on our hot summer's in Virginia. I use a 1" plastic elbow found in the electrical dept. for the back of the plate. I buy rebar and paint it green for the stem. Have sold

      It is a very strong pipe used in cement. You can buy pieces of different lengths at Lowe's. Just ask for rebar. We spray paint it a nice dark green. It only cost about $2 and will last forever. Try it you will have some fun.

    I've used e6000 and have had them come apart in the cold, low 40*s. Not good when your trying to sell them. I was setting up my booth and had have come apart and they had all been cured well over 30days...boo

    I buy a small pvc elbow in the electrical dept. Attach this and all other pieces with Gorilla Epoxy. The only thing that works.
