My Yard Art

   Finally after waiting on my husband to cut me a pole the correct size I gave up and attached it differently than I planned .So I ended up with lots more green color in it than it was to begin with and that was so I could make it a tighter fit .I used 3 candy dishes ,a small goblet ,a small candle holder and a flower vase, then attached the wooden ball I got from the dollar store for the top, under  the up-side down vase is a olive jar, also upside down with the green half marbles in between to keep it a tight fit. I used hot melt glue for that part and the clear silicone for the glass on top,
 The blue globe is like my mothers, hers was red with grout, I decided to leave mine plain, I did not care for the grout look.
The table is a plastic tray with sea shells and filler with a glass top and more sea shells all around the edge . I have all these just out side my front door.


  1. Cheryl, I love your yard art!! I want you to come to my house...rummage through all my weird glass ware with me and help me make one of those fun tall thingys. I have a feeling we would have so much fun! I actually have a bunch of the candy dishes...I still use them to eat off!! Okay...more stuff to play around with after my giant garage sale!!
