Do it yourself

Special to the Democrat-Gazette/NATHANIA SAWYER Syble McCleskey makes garden art from glassware.

Do it yourself

Make decorative flowers -- an easy project for beginners -- using these tips from Syble McCleskey:

• Select three pieces of glassware in graduated sizes -- a plate, saucer and small bowl work well.

• Glue the three pieces together and let them dry completely. She uses GE Silicone II, a paintable silicone caulk, an adhesive.

• Glue a salt or pepper shaker that has a flat edge onto the back of the plate and let it dry completely.

• Insert a dowel or stake into the bottom of the shaker and anchor the other end in the ground.

McCleskey says she leaves her glass pieces outdoors year-round. She sometimes incorporates ceramic pieces into her designs, but cautions that pieces made of pottery or porous materials should be stored inside during the winter.
