Day 35 of #90daysofblogging

My sister in law that lives in Omaha, NE saw some yard art that she liked and asked if I could make some. Sure if she shows me a picture of what she means. WOW, I don't know who made the one she took the picture of but, it was beautiful.

They are made entirely of glass plates, bowels, glasses and such. Then put onto a garden stick. So of course I had to get to our local resale shops and pick out some pretty glassware. (if they only knew what I was going to do with it LOL)

Here is the picture, it has 4 layers of glassware. The green and pink one is one large plate that I painted with FolkArt Multi-Surface paint in Bright Pink and Citrus Green. Then I painted the yellow one with Daffodil Yellow. After painting I let them sit for one hour to dry then put them in the oven and turned the oven on to 350 degrees and let them bake for 30 minutes. You then leave them in the oven until the oven cools down.

I then used a silicone adhesive to glue them all together. I have not attached the back or the stake yet.

I am starting on another one with more glassware, they are getting ready to go into the oven now.
You don't have to use clear glassware, it was just at this time when I was shopping I didn't find any large plates that were with a design on them.

Try them and put them in your yard, they look like flowers. Here are a couple more pics of them...

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget my friends...
