Glass Garden Flowers


Here are some of my "glass garden flowers" waiting indoors for spring. I layered plates, glued a flat sided vases from Michaels to the back. My green plastic garden stakes are perfect fit into the neck of the vase.

    What adhesive do you use to attach the glass vase to the glass plate?

      Allison. I've use a few different ones. E6000 is my go to usually. On these I used Loctite Clear Power Grab. Instant Grab/All purpose acrylic adhesive/calk. I really globbed it on since it was on the back. I let it set for a day or two or until my fingernail didn't dent it. It has held up in my garden for three years now

    I saw it on Hometalk and the photo was skipped of attaching it. Unfortunately all the silverware required flattening with a sledge hammer. We found drilling holes in the spoons made them not fall off. I tried the E6000 first and my Moms fell off. But no trouble with the automotive glue that is totally clear. I used plumbers tubing --cheap--but the flatware' handle was a fraction too thick so that too required work to bend it. I then saw the Llittle white elbow sprinkler pic piece but rebar has to be used. I ended up giving most of mine away. I have two out. unforeseen circumstances kept me from getting and cutting pipe. It was therapy those many years ago I spent a fortune on it!!! I have pretty ones on a rustic rotating stand we found at pottery barn so they sit in a corner of a room. Maybe someday I'll have a forest of fleurs in my garden🌸

    My sister made one of these with antique glassware. It's very pretty but every adhesive she has tried failed. Finally I tried JD Weld..it worked great until we has rains that seemed like we were going to need an ark to recover from. By time I was able to get outside I found the juice glass on the ground. I’m going to try it again but put some form of sealant I’ve over the attachment area.
