I am thrilled to be sharing this project with you, but I am even more thrilled to be collaborating with so many creative bloggers on this Fall Project Tour. We have come together to share beautiful fall projects that will inspire you to add a little fall to your home. The list of all the projects is at the end of this post so before you get settled, I suggest you grab a blanket, your favorite fall drink and a comfy spot because you are gonna be here awhile. 😉
This Repurposed Fall Wall Art is my project for this tour.
Can you believe it started out as this?
I started with this pile of goodies in my driveway and then I talked to Matt about my plans.
Initially, I wanted to use our yard stick supply on the back of the frame, but we didn’t have enough to fit the entire frame. Then, Matt told me he thought he could bend the chicken feeder and I could use the metal on the back of the frame.
Are you kidding?
Yes, let’s do that!
To start, he cut the ends off the chicken feeder with a metal blade.
Then, he used a heavy hammer and easily flattened the chicken feeder.
Who knew it would be that easy?
We laughed at this point, because he did actually use one of the yard sticks in this project. He screwed it onto the end of the work bench to hold the metal in place as he cut it.
We were able to get four pieces from the flattened chicken feeder to cover the entire frame!
I painted the frame gray and then sanded it down pretty well.
Isn’t is magical already?!
The next addition was some “test tubes” I picked up at a yard sale.
We used metal clamps to attach them to the frame.
I was going to fill the tubes with fake fall flowers and berries I had in a box, but while I was outside, these dried hydrangeas stole my heart and were the perfect fit for this project.
I still can’t believe how well this project turned out.
I have less than $5 invested and yet, it makes such a HUGE impact.
This Repurposed Fall Wall Art can be used all year-long. I can fill the tubes with different things depending on the season. I am excited about that.
I hope you grabbed your blanket and fall drink because now you are ready to get lost in this Fall Inspired Wonderland. Head over to Hometalk to see all the projects as well!
