Fence Post Flowers from upcycled junk.

The Trash Can Annie's have been at it again! My friend Carol and I hit the thrift stores looking for old pot and pan lids, serving plates and everything trashy and metal. We even had to drink a few beers for the sake of our project. (We needed the beer cans) We were making flowers to put out along our fences and on stakes in our gardens. Carol is really the crafty one. She lets me use her power tools. My husband hides his from me. We didn't get done but here are some pictures of a few we did and some Carol did on her own. All we did is use tin snips to cut the lids after we pulled off the lid tops. Then we started layering pieces and crimped a few with some crimping shear. We painted some and left some shabby. Next we drilled a hole and screwed them together. The best part is - no watering needed with these flowers!




Here are some more from Etsy stores I found on the internet!
