GLUE AND STACK GARDEN ART

Glue and stack!! It's as easy as that!!















Gather some of your favorite vintage dishes and hit the dollar store ladies!! This is fun and easy!! I used some old vases and a candle holder purchased from the dollar store and a couple spare dishes that I had. I also added a glass cheese ball cloche with a nested bird tucked inside and I topped it off with the cover to a sugar dish! Now, because I am super lazy and very impatient, I fired up my glue gun and used my best friend "hot glue." What you are actually supposed to use is a waterproof marine glue. It will hold nicely and keep the glass from fogging up. So, let your creative juices flow and give this a try!! I would love to see what you come up with!!

This is wonderful. I wonder if there is a way to get some fairy lights up in there. That would be exquisite at night. Lovely!!

How quaint !
I have lots of old plates, think I'll try something that could sit at the pond, with lights inside, so it shows up at night...
I'm so excited, thanks for sharing !

Jen,
This is a great look; I really like this fun and whimsical idea! I always see so many discarded floral containers at Thrift Stores that would be perfect for this project. Your photos turned out nice also.
