Finally Started Making My Plate Flowers and Glass Towers.....what FUN!

All the many trips to yard sales and thrift stores are finally paying off! Thanks to all of you who gave such great tips for making flowers and towers...they sure helped me out a LOT!!! Can't wait to make more!
I am drilling, gluing and using screws all the way thru so they should stay together!
A really colorful & whimsical flower!
Added some glass beads for extra color.
Love this one!
Pretty Pretty!!!
My 1st glass totem.I used GE Silicone,but found out it does NOT dry clear,so I switched to Plumbers GOOP and is clear,water proof and strong!Top piece looks off center,but it's a triangle cobalt bottle & looks straight from the front.
My 2nd totem. This one is one rebar in the garden, but took it inside for another purpose....
Turn it upside down and use it inside as a dessert tray.
Close up of bottom.
Top of totem.
My latest flower plate. Love the vivid colors!
Used the flattened spoon method to hang this plate & it's much easier & faster than the bell. I glued with Plumbers GOOP & put screw thru front plate then thru spoon with nut attached.
Bent spoon handle slips thru copper or conduit pipe. Can be easily taken in during harsh winters or storms.
