Jessi found this crystal platter for $2 - it was perfect. The second plate is my mom's dishes. I thought it would be a nice way to use my mom's stuff rather than garage sale or donate, then I have a little piece of her around my yard. I think she would like that.
Here is Jessi's
She found this copper platter and wanted to use that. This is a huge flower and I'm hoping it stays together. But the great thing about these flowers they don't die, wilt or attract bees. If they don't weather well and they fall apart I just have to re-glue them. Yes I used Locktite Epoxy Glue!
plates, platters, votive holders
Locktite Quick set Epoxy Glue
2' copper tube
2' rebar to secure it in the ground
45 degree copper bend to fit copper tube
large washer to fit copper bend
I positioned my plates and glued them in place, this I think took the longest time. Trying to decide which plate looks better. They all look nice, trust me. Glue plates and wait for it to set. I would glue them and then go do something else even thought the Locktite says 5 mins. The I would flip it over and glue the washer in the center, wait. Then attach the copper bend with lots of glue - don't worry it dries clear!
So in 30 mins. or so you have a beautiful flower.
If you want specifics on how I did these flowers just drop me an email firstname.lastname@example.org
