I have a bunch of clear pink dishes that a friend gave to me. I have plans to make flowers out of them. Just need to get the right drill bit so I don't break them ;)

Something else you can make with different sizes of plates and patterns is a dessert tray holder. Usually, I make them with three sizes of plates and drill a hole in each. Then you purchase hardware that you put through the plates to hold them together. These can be found on Amazon: RICH-Po 2 Tier , 3 Tier Crown Cake Stands Cupcake Plate Stand Handle Hardware Fitting Holder for candies, Dessert, Bread,Fruit, Candy (3 Tier, Gold)

This is great. I love these. Such a cute way to dress up the garden and maybe hold onto some cherished items.
