Garden Flowers Made From Dishes

Share it with others!

With a few dishes from the thrift store, some silicone, and a few items from the dollar store you can make these easy dish garden flowers.

You’ll need:

Thrift store dishes & candle holders



Pick how you want your dishes to go together.

Glue them with a glue of your choice – I recommend either silicone or E6000. Let dry completely.

Glue your skewers onto the back of your dishes.

Let dry completely.

Place them in your flower pot or garden.

For larger dish flowers, all you need to do is glue your dishes together and let dry.

On the back I have flattened a spoon and bent it.

I glued the flat part of the spoon to the dish, and put the bend part of the spoon in a pipe in my flower pot.

Place them in a garden or flower pot to enjoy.
