Have your seen garden dish flowers in yards, shops and craft fairs? This DIY tutorial will show you how to make them yourself. This project is extremely easy to do.

To make garden dish art collect inexpensive dishes from yard sales, flea markets, thrift shops or search your own cupboards to see if you have any unused items. Then, it is time to begin making the flowers. For more dish upcycling, visit our DIY Dish and Glass Recycling page.
