Garden Globes


Saw a great example on Hometalk of how to make garden globes so I decided to try a few myself to give as gifts and decorate my yard. I really enjoy finding different/unusual stands to put them on. Attached are a few of my favorites.

Have purchased several floor lamps for $2.00 each and cleaned and painted them.  When they are lit the glass is beautiful at night.
