Garden Totem - Pic

craftylady-2006August 13, 2006

Here is a Garden totem I made - using the ideas from the Garden Junk forum (my new friends, I just love all of them). The bottom is an old kitchen light chandelier I found and took apart. As I was building it I grabbed the light part of the chandelier and stuck it on there and then added the spiral bottle and little churb which I found also. I had to stick two votive candles in the back sockets as I didn't have enough small pillar candles - just for effect. I've since bought small white pillar candles.

Let me know your thoughts,

Sal, I love your garden totem. Thanks for getting things going here. I've been getting "trash" from my dad's place. But I haven't turned them into "treasures" yet.

You did a great job on the totem. I've never made one. I'm still trying to catch up on all the projects that I wanted to do when I was still teaching. (And it's been 3 years since I retired! LOL)
