Crafts for the backyard. Glass flower plates,butterfly bath and more.


Giving these new crafts a try that I found off Pinterest for my backyard. Here are some of my completed projects. This is my second try. The first time the glue didn't hold up to the rain we had last week. It was suppose to be water proof. So trying another will see how it goes if we get more rain & with the hot sun next. If not I'll have to drill them like I do the wine bottles.
The butterfly bath. Oranges are suppose to attrack them will see.

    What do you use for a post and how do you attach it to the plate?

      I buy a green garden stake & cut it in 2 to 3 pieces depending how tall I want it. I attach them by using a bottle (beer, small wine, etc..) upside down with GE silicone ll . They have lasted 4 years so far. :)

    I have made three Butterfly feeders, each with different nectar, oranges, etc. I have NOT seen one Butterfly on any of the three, but the bees and pesky flies
    have taken over. What am I doing wrong??
