Garden Jewelry with Cast Off Dishes

After admiring these "plate flowers" for a while I jumped in and made some.  This was lots of fun!!!  I used E6000 glue to join the plates, saucers, candleholders, glass drops, etc.  On the back I glued a flattened cheap spoon with the handle down.  The handle sticks into a piece of plastic conduit that is reinforced with an old scrap of rebar inside. 
Give the glue plenty of time to set up (maybe as long as a week) before putting them on the stakes.
I have to warn you...this can get addictive...I made a lot more than shown.  Have fun if you try it!!
