GREAT THINGS ARE DONE BY A SERIES OF SMALL THINGS BROUGHT TOGETHER.
Vincent van Gogh
These garden totems add such a wonderful and interesting pop to your flower beds and pots. They are a quick and easy DIY. The hardest part of this project is choosing your glassware and deciding how to arrange your pieces...we arranged and rearranged ours numerous times before settling on just how they would be glued together.
Very few supplies are needed for this project...glassware, silicone and some type of metal stake. We used GE clear silicone. This particular silicone is weatherproof, sun-proof and freeze-proof... very important since these will be outside.
All the glassware we used was purchased from thrift stores for little money. Parts from lamps, bowls, flower and bud vases, saucers, candy dishes, candle holders, etc...were all used for this project. We used flower and bud vases as the bases on our totems so they could easily be slipped onto metal stakes.
Our totems haven't found their way outside yet. It's still too early in the Texas Panhandle to plant our beds and flower pots. We're still being plagued with periodic nightime freezes. We hope to share some pictures of our totems placed among our flowers in a post later on in the spring or early summer.
