I forget what these tall spindly iris are called, but I think they look nice against my 1st attempt at a garden totem Rolling my eyes.

Very pretty, did you build the totem?

I love your totem!!! I've never seen one before. I saved your photograph -- now I have to start looking for the components. Questions: -- the bottom part is the concrete base of a birth bath? And the tall blue (vase I think?) part in the center -- does that have a flat rim? Did you add anything to the interior of it to create gluing space? What kind of glue did you use for this project?

Can you tell I'm intrigued???? Hilarious! Thumbs up Lovey dubby

Lovely iris and love the totem! I have wanted to make one for ages but most of the glass items I have found ended up being new ones for my glass shelves inside! Just haven't gotten the courage to glue them yet. Sad

I have used E6000 or GE Silicone II. I am still experimenting, so I am not sure which one works better yet.

Beautiful totem! ~Jan
