I am sure this has been covered before, but since I am sort of new to this forum, I was wondering if any of you make the glass "flowers" using old glassware you pick up at sales. I found where some of you make totem poles but not the flowers. I would love to see some examples that you wouldn't mind master gardeners using.

How do you attach the glass flower to the pole? Of you use glue or drill? This point has always stumped me.

I have made several. I use a small flat sided bottle glued to the back of the main plate. It fits nicely over a rebar or other type pole. I have also seen a piece of sturdy fabric, cut in a circle and placed over the pole and glued entirely to the plate. Forms a stiff cast like cover.

Good luck. It is addictive. Biggest problem is what to do with them after you get them all done...
