I am having a blast making these glass totems. I even made this serving stand for my daughter. She plans on using it for cookies and appetizers.
I placed a pink porcelain rose in the middle tier.
And a cute porcelain basket of flowers on the top.
Several of these would be great to use at a bridal shower. This pic has a yellow tone to it but it is actually quite clear.
And here is my newest garden totem. For those of you that asked what kind of glue I am using, it is called super goop. You can use any kind of clear glass glue.
I have to find a better way of photographing these because they are gorgeous in person but just don't show up very well on the post.
Maybe if you click on it you can see the details better. To give you an idea of what you are actually seeing here, starting at the bottom is a pressed glass plate turned upside down. The next piece is an upside down bowl. On top of the bowl is a cheap vase turned upside down. Then a scalloped dish is turned upside down on top of the vase. The next round glass ball is a piece from and old light fixture (it cost 49 cents). That piece is topped with another scalloped dish turned upside down. If you are using these in a the garden you don't want them to hold water but rather have it run off of the pieces. The next small pedestal piece is a candle holder. A small glass plate sits on top of the candle holder. The next piece is a small bud vase. And I topped it off with a clear glass bell that has a porcelain flower on the front of it.
This section shows eight pieces of glass.
This section shows 7 pieces. There 11 pieces that make up this totem. Total cost of this was about 8.00.
The totem apprentice was very sleepy this morning. Or she is just bored watching mama play with all this glass. I am making a totem for each of my neighbors and the challenge is going to be getting them to them. These things end up being over 3 feet tall when complete.
***I just read my emails and had so many questions about the totems that I promise to take step by step pics of the next one to show you how you can make one.
