Going to Seed

Any type of cup and saucer will work here. I chose to go with new, store-bought selections, but you may elect to raid the cupboards or make a dash to your favorite antique or thrift shop.
I started with a garden ornament as the base, but you can use any kind of pole or rod for your interpretation of this fun project. A little heavy-duty glue, a few decals, and just a couple of minutes of assembly were all it took for this one.
Now, where shall I put this? In my garden? As an accent in a potted plant? Decisions, decisions!
Decals or other embellishments are best applied before assembly.
Be sure to select a metal or other all-season material for the base part of this project. Rustic wood stakes are cool, but they will inevitably rot after only a summer or two in the ground.
The cup and saucer can be replaced by any number of household containers or other fun objects. Get creative!
