Yard sale find today has me just a bit excited. Got 6 hanging lights for $10. They are long and heavy. Have already taken them apart and 3 of them will become Solar lights.
Now, what to do with the pretty brass leftover pieces. They fit on top of some large vases that I have but don't know exactly how I will use them in the gardens yet. Any ideas?

3 pieces on a mantle or table would be nice. It might look a little like this:

or

Combine with a deep blue glass vase (or other color) as a decorative top as here:

Nice score! How about hanging the bigger brass end pointy side down? Take the 'light' guts out. Find some chain in a similar color and attach it to three different points on the wide 'mouth' of the light. You could either line them with sphagnum moss and plant them or you could put a gazing ball in them.

The smaller brass bottom part could be mounted on top of a painted dowel and stuck in the ground. Or take to of the small finials and stick them on either end of a painted dowel. Then using chain or macrame cord or some other pretty/interesting rope attach it a few inches away from the ends (so it looks like a swing) and attach it to the ceiling of your porch. You could then hang a few pots from that. Might be cool.

Both ends could be used to hold votive candles too if you hung them.

HTH and have fun!! :-)

Wonderful find!

My German Shepherd sometimes wanders through my strawberry plants. The area isn't very big and might need maybe 6 or 8 upright fence posts. Recently, a dollar store in town went out of business and I found these adorable fat bird figurines for just 25 cents there. They look sort of old-fashioned...like old whitewash that has been weathered. I plan to put a bird on the top of each of my fence posts.

That made me think that perhaps you, too, might have a small area to fence off, and you could use the large metal pieces on top of each of the fence posts. They seem large enough to make a "statement" as fence toppers.

Hubby dug 4 fence posts into the ground for me last year, and we stapled chicken wire to it. I plant tomatoes there and tie them to the chicken wire as they grow. It might be interesting to put "crowns" on the top of the posts like the ones hubby put in for me. If only I could remember a sign I saw last year...something about tomatoes being the "queen of the garden". It was such a cute saying...and would make the crowns make sense, but darn it, I just can't remember it! Maybe somebody else has seen that quote, remembers it, and will post it.

Gosh, goodness gracious , you guys are good. So many ideas and I want to try them all. Thank you so much. They are large enough to be toppers on a fence post, but I have the entire back yard fenced in and 6 toppers wouldn't work. My mantle is already "done". (Clock & candles) Thanks for the links, enjoyed looking. I have the answer!!!! You guys just hop the first bus or whatever and we will do this together...seriously, you have no idea how much I would love meeting you.
You wouldn't believe how heavy this glass is. Bet it will sparkle after I clean it.

Hi Faye,

Great find! What if you took the brass toppers and used them as a topper for hanging plants. All you'd need is some chain, some carabiner's or strong S hooks and some sort of potted plant and you can have a very fancy hanging planter. You can paint the chain brass or just paint everything one color if you want to make it look lighter.

I wonder if you could put clumps of Christmas lights in each of those glass globe thingys? Or if you could find any of the kinds of solar lights like I have (in the pic) that you could stick in them. I have a few that the globes are broken. If you were handy you could rig them up inside your glass fixtures. Not only do mine glow with white light, they can be switched to colored so they change from green to blue to red. That would look real cool through your glass fixtures cuz it would cast a pattern on whatever it's near.

Have fun whatever you do! :-)

I saw a video the other day where they placed a spoon in between the folds of a towel and pounded it with a hammer. The spoon was a little rippled but mostly flat. They said just keep hammering it til you get most of the bumps out. HTH

Hi all:
I used to oil paint in the bowl part of sterling silver teaspoons. I drilled a small hole at the top of the spoon handle for hanging. Drilling the hole was not the easiest thing I'd ever done, you do need a special drill bit for metal. I learned to drill the hold first, before painting as some times I slid and the hole was off center. Stainless steel is easier to drill into, but not as pretty when cleaned and sparkling in the sun. Also, using a vice to hold the spoon/fork/knife is highly recommended. . Keep your hands away from the drill bit, it may slip..

For flattening the silverware, I'd cover the piece with a towel and smash it with a hammer. Probably one of those rubber mallets would be good. You could place some pieces side by side, cover with a towel, and then place a piece of 2x4 over the towel and bang away. Or you could line up a bunch in the street and have your Harley riding son drive over them to flatten them. Or you ride over them on the Harley... might as well have some fun!

Enjoy,
Sue

Post #8477515

keepingactive one way you can keep the drill bit from slipping is to take a nail with a sharp point, place the point where you want the hole, then give it a sharp rap with your hammer. That will create pilot hole of sorts for the bit to sit in when you start drilling.

I do like your Harley solution for flattening spoons. I've always thought I'd try driving my suburban over something that need flattening but I'm afraid I'd puncture a tire knowing my luck. :-)

flowblue I'd use E6000. You could glue a truck to the ceiling with that stuff. You can get it at most craft or DIY hardware stores.

Good luck everyone! :-)

You can get E-6000 at Wal-Mart too at $2.67 a tube, well last time I looked. It seems everyone is using that glue, it really is good. Have to keep mine hidden from DH or won't have any left when I want to use it.

For drilling little holes I always use a small piece of masking tape over the hole area as it helps keep the bit from wandering and I start the hole with the drill in reverse to make the dent that will hold the bit tighter.

A giant size bag of silverware, what a find! I do see some at the thrift store, but never looked for ones for chimes. Another project to add to my list. In the dumpster we found 6 nice metal folding chairs (I'm sure my granddaughter will lay claim to them) and some of the plastic panels for dropped ceilings. I'm supposed to be getting rid of "stuff" but I end up adding to them.

flowblue: My sterling silver wind chime (that I bought years ago) does not have the flattened teaspoons. It chimes perfectly. I don't know why they suggest flattening them, the fork and knives were already essentially flat, except for the handles. I also think that Stainless Steel is heavier than sterling, so it would be harder to flatten. Personally, I'd skip that step, unless someone can say definitively why one needs to flatten he spoons.

Sorry, no pic, still have not found cord for camera to pc.

hi keeping and dahtzu

sorry my question was misleading. i wanted to flatten teaspoons for another purpose, (not to make them into a chime) but so i could use it to glue to a plate, bend the handle insert that into a tube and stake it in the ground...a garden flower totem?

where i've seen them, it shows a picture of the front flower, but never the back of it...then i read somewhere else that hockey pucks would work as well, glue that to the back of plate and drill hole at edge of puck to insert rebar.

have no idea where to get h. pucks. so thought flattened tsp would work, but i could not flatten them...??? any suggestions, please. i already have the flower plates...can't wait to glue and stake them in the garden.

these are my TS find flower saucers...

Could you just glue a fitting like this to the bottom? http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://img.wdtrade.com/wdtrade/tradeimage/2022/4471.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.wdtrade.com/showroom/tradeleadlist/322258/Dongguan_Tiantai_Composite_Technology_Co_Ltd_.aspx&usg=__qY0BA0W9Dwk2E4uAl62QCNBDq0E=&h=288&w=288&sz=16&hl=en&start=48&sig2=oDz7odCzDIt-74_JcCWMnQ&zoom=1&tbnid=LZi5MHOX9JoSpM:&tbnh=156&tbnw=128&ei=wsavTcCyEMuztwfBkL2PDA&prev=/search?q=pipe+flange&hl=en&biw=839&bih=486&gbv=2&tbm=isch0,2388&itbs=1&iact=hc&vpx=111&vpy=156&dur=8503&hovh=225&hovw=225&tx=120&ty=189&page=8&ndsp=7&ved=1t:429,r:0,s:48&biw=839&bih=486

Flowblue: The following link has a lot of information about similar plates and adhesives. If you scroll to almost bottom, one crafter glued a PVC cap to the plate and then inserted (or glued, I'm not sure) a PVC elbow to the cap. Then I guess rebar could be inserted in the elbow? or maybe after the PVC cap and elbow a longer piece of PVC with the rebar inside? Not sure... BUT these will be so cute if you get it figured out. Pls post on what you came up w and photos! http://forums2.gardenweb.com/forums/load/junk/msg1212353032204.html

My best other thought so far is to fashion a couple of "legs" to hold the plate on a wooden stake - like a plate display holder. You could add a magnet glued to either the stake or the plate and a piece of flat metal glued to the other. If using a wooden stake with the magnets idea, you could also put a small wooden "ledge" with a groove in it at the bottom of the plate, secured to the stake. Hope this makes sense. I'm thinking what would give more security than just glue.

If you used regular plate hangers, could you then attach then to re bar? Let us know what works.
Finished the Wind Chime..of course with my Honey's help. Remember the top part is part of the hanging lights I got from a yard sale.

Dahtzu: so pretty and I'll bet it sounds good, too. The (lamp) top is really beautiful, did you rub gold or something on it? It looks good! The whole thing looks good. I particularly like the length. I think you made yours longer and that "makes" it.

Thank you for your support. I do not know how it sounds..lol I finished it today, hung it , took picture and came back into house.
J2's, no I didn't do anything to the top. That is exactly how all 6 of them were when I got them.
