Autumn Flower Plate for Your Garden


The colorful days of autumn are almost upon us and it's nearly time to change your garden 
ornaments to reflect the season.


It's Fun to make Flower Plates for your garden!  

This garden flower plate is four different plates glued together.  
The smallest is actually a small cupped plate of shallow bowl

Combining shapes and textures is what makes the plates eye catching.
You really have to put together a lot of different combinations to find just the right one that pleases you.


The hanger in back allows it to be placed on a lattice divider, a planter or in a stand alone copper pipe.



Plates can be hung indoors as well.  My sister in law hung hers on her bakers rack where she keeps her coffee pot, pretty cups and saucers, etc.  It looked adorable.  


A big thank you to Kathryn over at The Dedicated House for featuring me on 
her SUNDAY SHOWCASE  featuring my Garden Totem,.  This post had the most views of all 231 participants 
from Make it Pretty Monday last week. 
What a nice surprise for me!

Hi Jean Marie,

So nice to meet you!

It's funny, but just before I checked my email (where you left your comment on my last post), I was at Mary's Mosaic Monday party and made a note to go back to visit a few of the links that I found interesting...well, of course, your plate piece caught my eye, but you had beat me to it!

LOVE love love your choice of colours and patterns and textures and shapes! And, altogether, they are ADORABLE!

Happy Monday!

Following you back,

Poppy

Your garden ornament is so pretty! You have selected just the perfect plates combination! I wish I could feel autumn too, but that is not going to happen for another 3 months here in Texas ;)

I love your plates. I have tried to make a few but cannot seem to find the right glue to make them stay together. What did you use? Thanks!
