Mannequin as enchanting rose trellis
This is another of the most fabulous garden art pieces we’ve ever seen! The tea rose makes the perfect skirt….it reminds us of Cinderella.
Teri Smith says “My mosaic mannequin is dressed for a prom. After I got finished with mosaicing and grouting the mannequin I had no place for it….until my tea rose started blooming.
Teri says, “I bought two at a garage sale years ago for $3.00 each. I used to sell on eBay and thought they would work great when I took pictures of clothes. Then when I stopped selling, I thought…what am I going to do with them now? I no longer sell,…and love to mosaic, so I said why not? I mosaic everything! That’s when I created my Prom. Lady. I still have one left and not sure where it will end up!”
“I had lots of left-over glass pieces, trinkets and odds and ends and it was a great way to use them up. Her skirt will be in bloom most of the summer.”
FMGer Christy Morrow says “This is one of the most fabulous things I’ve ever seen! That tea rose makes the perfect skirt….it reminds me of Cinderella.
More of Teri’s garden projects
Teri says, “This is my summer project that I did and still have to grout and seal before winter sets in. I have to do some surgery and a face lift to create my garden people.”
Teri also made an amazing set of mosaiced steps. She says, “I used my left over pieces of tile, glass and other cool things I found to create my step fronts. The steps leads up to my garden get away.”
Teri says, “I call these my beaded sunshine garden wands. Using beads, wire. and a candlestick holder I created a rainbow of color for my flower garden.”
Teri says, “I found a picture that I loved of a star. As I was decorating outdoors for Christmas I showed it to my husband. This is what he came up with. It is beautiful and bright and I think he did a wonderful job.
My husband got our big ladder out and climbed up in our old cherry tree. From there he ran strings of garland lights down to the porch post. Ta da!”
