I don't know from flowers.

tehutiJuly 26, 2012

Usually I drift more to insects than flowers but I thought I'd try my own brand of garden "plate" flower.This one has the following parts:

1 large blue plate,

1/2 of a fan-blade screen,

1 blue glass candle holder,

1 blue glass draw pull,

1 small green dish,

1 decorative brass butterfly (painted),

1 base of a table lamp,

1 heat deflector from a water heater,

and misc nuts and bolts.

Cool Robert! Love the use of the fan cover and the green candleholder as a stem! Looks great!

Between the large plate and the mounting washer I used a rubber hose washer to absorb the tension of a tight screw.

Definitely your own brand of flower plates! ;-)
With that fan blade screen, I bet this flower blows in the wind! You are the greatest recycler I know! TFS! Jeanne S.

Great!
I have everything to make one except the
heat deflector from the water heater.
Wonder how many months it will take me
to make one!?!
Procrastination!
