Glass Flowers

I started a project early in the spring.  I collected glass plates, vases and bowls.  Well I did a really good job of collecting. (Imagine that)  Then I got sick and had to put it all away.  Last week I got everything out and designed some flowers.  It was a fun project.

I wanted to share the first one.  It is a smaller four piece flower.  I have some larger ones, we are working on getting them all on heavy duty copper tubing.

Glass Flowers

I hope the squirrels don’t try to use it as a step ladder into the bird feeders.

I like that I don’t have to water or deadhead these flowers.  Thanks to Linda for sharing about her glass flowers, they were the inspiration for mine.

  4. This is cool. Maybe I could find some of my stuff and set it up. In my case I hope the squirrel comes along and then I don't have to take the stuff back in the house.

    1. I used a marine glue that is waterproof...and let it cure for at least 24 hours. :)

  7. How pretty! I have seen these around and have often thought of making some. Thinking about it is as far as I get.
    What type of glue do you use?

  8. That is so beautiful! I am very impressed with your creativity! I can just imagine how lovely they'll be when the sun shines through or the raindrops settle in the crevices! Maybe I'll try one myself -- you've inspired me!

  11. What a great way to reuse some glass, and create something really stunning in your garden. We are watering every day here in Texas for the flowers in pots. Ugh! These would work for me as well!
