Dollar Store Dish Flowers

3 Materials
2 Hours

These are a pint-size version of much loved dish flowers.

I used clear plates from the dollar store, and some little vases and glasses from the thrift shop.

You can get printable instructions for this project here on my blog.
Get an assortment of clear, small plates, crystal candy dishes, tiny vases, and shot glasses. I also used salt and pepper shakers and bbq skewers for the stalks.
Make sure you use a craft paint that is made for glass surfaces. Notice I paint the *back* of the dish with the daisy petals.
Tiny vases, sherry glasses, and salt and pepper shakers are used for the flower stamens (middles). I decorated them with paint pens for glass. Glue them together and you're ready to go. I use GE II Silicone sealant (clear, waterproof, made for gutters and flashing).
Pickle Dish garden flowers are a smaller version of the traditional garden art glass flowers. They are fast and easy to make and can be displayed in little flower pots or placed in the ground.
Lightweight flowers can be mounted using ball point pen caps. Any metal stick can work as a stem.
So cheerful! They look really cute all in a row! Happy Spring!
Display them on a fence or wall, or stand them in flower pots!
