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.

    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.
