I saw CherryForever's glass birdbath and had to post some of my yard totems.  I have been making them since this spring when I went to a gardening seminar and I learned about them and how to make them.






They are all made of plant pots, vases, cups, candle holders, ash trays, light globes, etc.  Some have a dish on the top to be used for bird seed/bath, some are just for looks among the flowers.

I don't know. . .  If others have this problem, maybe I'll have to take down my post.   Cry

Those are so great!  What adhesive/hardware did you use to make everything solid and joined?

Beautiful work!

I've only ever seen the concrete cast totems and hypertufa on the Gardenweb forums.
I love how you used everyday objects.

Love it!

Thanks, all, for your kind words! 

I used indoor/outdoor silicone caulk to hold everything together.  It gives a little bit so things don't break so easily if they fall and it's very cheap.
