I hate to throw anything away as you never know when inspiration will hit you.
A favourite stained glass artist of ours is Cindy Laneville and I had the privilege of meeting Cindy some years ago at a couple of different craft sales and we have a couple of her gorgeous works in our home. One of her latest ideas is stained glass garden posts.
Lightbulb moment! I could attempt to make something similar on a smaller scale. I’ve had odd bits of 4×4 fence posts left over from replacing a deck years ago. I also have some of the caps made for the fence posts. At one time I was thinking of making them into little houses, but that was an idea that hasn’t materialized yet.
I created trees made with sea glass, pebbles, shells and small flat stones. The treasures have been collected on our visits to various places in Ontario and British Columbia.
Each side had a tree made with a different nature item. E6000 is my glue of choice for projects like this. I glued on each tree and let it dry completely before turning and adding another tree on the next side.
The cap was screwed on before finding a place to display it.
My decorative fence post trees are nothing like Cindy’s and one day I hope to own one of her creations for my garden.
