With the continuing drought and high heat here in Texas I decided to give this a try to at least have something pretty to look at. Please let me know if I am on the right path making these.
You are definitely on the right path!! A great option with the drought. They look great
Looks like you're on the right path to me! Those look great!
I especially like the bottom row! The only thing I would like to see more color on the square plate 1 it might just be the pic but it looks mostly clear or light green in center. I'd glue on some 1/2 glass marbles or paint with glass paint some scrolls or little flowers to jazz it up a little!! Like the stems too! TFS Jan
Very nice! They look good in your beds.
Did you drill or glue your plates?
We were in drought here for several years. Made up for it this summer, though, and I'm thankful for that, but I believe it's rained every single day for 3 months. Just been too wet and hot to do much outdoors. Then with all the rain comes all the mosquitos. Getting a touch of cabin fever (even though there's always plenty to do inside, I'm used to being able to play outside more :) but fall is comming, in fact it's here today, isn't it. Anyway...
Thanks for sharing, it's fun to see what others are up to.
Thank you all for the encouraging words. I am officially addicted. Just got back from Goodwill with more plates. My plates are drilled. I have a rubber washer between layers. The stem is painted PVC pipe.I slip it over rebar so it is sturdy. I did find out some of the glass plates must be tempered glass as they shattered when drilled. Not sure how you can tell before hand. I also think I am going to use drawer pulls for centers on these new ones. Will post when done.
