Yard Art

I went to this local artist show the other day and saw something so cute. I felt kind of bad not purchasing it from the artist, but I'm all about borrowing great ideas from other people and claiming them for my own :-)


Here are the supplies.
Helpful tip: Chick-Fil-A always makes projects more fun!


I went to the local thrift store to find the molds and pie pan. I had the knob from a previous project and the rest came from Lowes. It was really fun searching around for pieces that could work as flower parts!


I spray painted the mold and knob. Drilled holes in the plate and mold and used the knob to attach it to the post.





Next up was the leaves. For this I bought some metal siding and just cut out a couple leaves, painted them and just attached them with screws.


This was such a fun project and fairly simple. I did spray it with poly to help protect it a little.


Won't it add some fun character to a flower bed or something?
