What advice would you give someone starting this project? Using the correct glue. You need a weather poof glue that will not crack , peel, or yellow in the sunlight yet will hold thru rain and garden waterings.

how do you drill the hockey puck, , did you use a piece of rebar, or come up with something more flexible....to put slight bends in the flowers stems?

I put the hockey puck into a vise to with the flat sides of the puck ancored in the vise to hold it steady while I work. The puck is made of rubber and drills easily. I used a 3/8 inch piece of rebar for the stem so I drilled a 3/8 hole in the puck to make it fit snug. The stem can be anything you like as long as it is heavy enough to support the weight of the plates. I have also seen these made with plasic dishes, Easier to work with but they dont last as long Have fun and be as creative as you like.

I read some of these posts, this year I will ( fingers crossed) have time to attempt these cool plate flowers. My question is this, is the silicone glue going to be strong enough to hold glass and ceramic together? My plates are big 13" glass platter 11" ceramic, 8" ceramic and a glass dessert cup. I Really want to use these together but it feels pretty heavy. Thanks

Try Lexel Sealant. The clear sealant goes on clear, dries clear and stays clear. I've tried many glues, sealants and caulk and this product is superior to all. I have a "plate flower" that has endured all 4 seasons of the mid-Atlantic for 4 years. Make sure your glass is free of dirt and oil. Allow 2 weeks to cure completely. If you are one who needs instant gratification, this product is not for you.
