i did it! glass totem

grandma_cindy(5)June 29, 2010

I really wanted to get this patriotic totem done before the 4th, where we have a big picnic before the fireworks. It is for table decoration, not the garden, hence the right-side-up plates, which I'll use for snacks, confetti, or who knnows!

I also put together matching votive and taper holders, one of each combined, so you can use them either way - just flip em over!

You did do it, and very well I might add. I love the patriotic colors. The litle candle holders are a good idea too. You'll be hooked before you know it.

Well, great first totem Cindy! Love the patriotic theme and the fact that you can use it on the table as decoration AND a serving piece! And the candleholders are wonderful...very creative!

Lucky you to find a red vase! They aren't so easy to come by. I like the idea that your totem can be used as a garden decoration or a serving piece too. It would look great on a 4th of July buffet. Ditto for the clever candle holders too! Keep the totems coming!

OK, I've got 4 plate flowers made now too. Well, they're not hanging yet, just put together until DH cuts my PVC pipe. TG for GW!
