Glass Plate Flower

I LOVE this!

I was surfing the internet and came across flowers made from glass plates, saucers, bowls, etc. put on copper stakes for yard/flower garden decorations.

I went to the thrift store and picked up several pretty plates and bowls in different sizes. My father~in~law drilled the holes in them and put them together for me.

I'm planning on having several of these in my flower garden very soon :)

I'll post a photo when they're finished. They look beautiful in the sunlight.


  1. Wow! This is gorgeous!! I asked hubby if he would drill some holes in glass plates for me.. he said it was very hard to do. :( So, guess you are lucky to have a FIL who could do it! :) I cannot wait to see what you've made!

    1. not hard to do at all! Just buy a diamond bit, go easy, and keep the drill bit wet and you will do fine!

  2. Id like to know how you attached it to the rod. It's beautiful!
