Garden Art

Postby Blossom » Sep 30, 2012 11:19 am

Is anyone into making garden totem poles or flowers made from glass plates and dishes? Went to Buffalo this summer on a "Garden Walk" tour. A few of the gardens had old antique dishes placed around the gardens, some made into bird baths or feeders. Came home and went to several thrift stores and started collecting. Then I went on "Pinterest" whom my daughter told me about - now I'm addicted.

Here are a few of my creations.

I love home-made garden art. Your garden art is very unique, Blossom. Very pretty and colourful. I love seeing objects designed for one type of use changed into something totally different.

Very creative. *two thumbs up*

Well done Blossom!! You are very creative! I love antiques and they certainly seem to lend a whimsical air to the garden! I always keep my eyes open at flea markets & garage sales for those special pieces that would look great tucked here and there in the garden.

I also do the same for my garden. It's good to know that I am not alone in doing so. ;) I put decors in both my indoor and outdoor gardens. I use vases add some marbles or crystal water beads in them and put some flowers. They also make good centerpieces. I like your idea of gluing up different porcelains and types of glass that makes all your pieces unique. :)
