My first plate flower
I finally made a plate flower. I have been searching for a good fastener for the back of the plate. While rummaging around in the garage (hubby's workshop) I found a piece he had cut off of a spindle (square). It is probably 3 X 3 in. I drilled a hole about 2/3 of the way thru the wood and then glued it with E6000 to the back of the plate then took a dowel and fit it into the block hole. So far so good. Has been thru a couple of big rain storms and still holding fast.
