glass art - window hanger with wings 'n flowers!!

i had this 4X4" beveled  piece of glass.
ok, what can i do with it??  i have some pressed flowers and butterfly & dragonfly wings,
so i decided to decorate it with some...
then i gave it a couple of coats of 'mod-podge'...
let it set for a couple of days...then gave it a coat of clear acrylic spray.
then i ran some 12 gauge copper color wire around all the edges, front & back,
so it would hold the glass in like a frame.
twisted the wire at the top, making a loop...
and this is the back...
now it's ready to hang in a window.
of course, not a window that has direct sunlight as this will make the flower petals fade!!
this is something you can do with any piece of glass...even a pane from an old window! or a bottle!

(check out some of my vintage bottle art!)

be creative! have fun! and stay cool...   :]
