Here are a few of the plate flowers made with my friends. Too many to post so will do just a few. This is just so much fun.

OK enough of this. I need to get away from here. I know you don't want to see every single one we made (12 or 13?) so this is it for now. I don't have the backs on them so I am leaving to go finish them up. Have A Great Day!

I love the 1st one also, is that the center of plate or did you add the hearts? The shells make a very interesting center for the 2nd one. Nice work! TFS Jan

Hi there
Love the plate flowers. I love this site. I never ever leave a message though for someone but I am curious about something? What kind of glue do you all use for the totems and plate flowers? must be a strong one since they all go outside? thanks

Deezie, I use what was recommended by the others: GE II clear silicone caulking. It does hold up very well, and is easy to use. You can get it in small tubes (but costly that way if you do very many), or like I buy, the size tubes you'd put in a caulking gun when doing doors or windows.
Try it, you'll be hooked! LOL

Hi All, Thanks for your input and nice comments.

Sunnyca, I added the hearts to the first plate. Just ordered some different pieces for trying mosaic and thought it matched my flower.

Deezie, I started using E6000 Glue which works great. But from the recommendation from here I have moved on to the GE II clear caulk in the gun. I get both of them at Walmart.

Have A Great Day!

Love them. And yes I do want to see them all!
Some of myfriends want to come over to my house and make plate flowers too. Can't wait!
I goint to send them your post since most of mine are glass, to give them different ideas of plates to look for.
