The Idea: Make Your Own Totems from an Assortment of Glass Pieces
Glass totems sparkle brilliantly in the sunlight -- and moonlight. Create your own from glass pieces you pick up at yard sales, flea markets, or your recycling pile. To create an artsy little tower, clean the pieces and glue them together one on top of the other. Blogger Debra Anchors says her own glass totems have lasted through four Michigan winters without breaking and are beautiful in the snow. She created one of them from a vintage kitchen canister set from the 1950s and a 1970s punch bowl.
