Dish Flowers

Winter time can get very dreary when looking out the windows.  No beautiful color from the flowers anywhere to be seen.  I’ll admit the snow is beautiful before the animals track through it or the vehicles drive through it but it’s not like looking at beautiful blooms in our yard.

I FOUND A REMEDY!!

Take a look at these beautiful glass flowers I created from old dishes!

Three bowls glued together with E6000 and allowed to dry. On the back of the set I glued an old medicine bottle and the opening of the bottle sits on a 3-4 foot piece of rebar in my flower gardens.

I took four different sizes of clear dishes and glued them together. It’s a beautiful flower that sparkles all kinds of colors when the sun hits it.

E6000 is the glue I used but there are other options to try when you check out my Pinterest site (https://www.pinterest.com/NanaCountryFarm/glass-flowers/).

Some will be heavier than others but the rebar placed well in the soil will make it stand up and shine!

Check out my Pinterest site https://www.pinterest.com/NanaCountryFarm/glass-flowers/ for more ideas and more links with detailed instructions.

This gives you an idea of how the glass flower will look on the rebar standing in your flower garden.

Imagine the sun hitting the pinks and reds on this glass flower.

Now get busy putting those old dishes to good use and think SPRING!!!
