I had so much fun putting my "Polatems" together. I collected beautiful pots and plates from Goodwill and garage sales. I dug a hole 12" deep intserted a piece of rebar, which can be purchased at a hardware store in any length of your choice. Fill the hole with concrete. Level the rebar to make it straight. Once the concrete dries..overnight is good, start putting the pots and plates onto the rebar in an artistic order, gluing them as you go..I used glass glue from the hardware
store, it comes in a caulking tube. Use a level to keep each pot or plate straight. You can add pieces in the middle such as a metal dish from an old firepit as a planter or even a terricotta planter. Just be creative. Top it off with a glass ball, a ceramic bird or whatever suits you fancy. There you have it ...Enjoy and watch the birds..even the Hummers like the colors.
This project is so easy. Only takes one brass candle holder, some thrift store tea cups and saucers, some crystals or old jewelry and some strong glue and spray paint. Put it together and you've created a very pretty centerpiece.
By using thrift store spoons and a board from an old pallet, this spoon and pallet hook rack will add loads of charm to any room- on a budget! Stop by the blog to see just how easy this is to make- and a secret way to "stamp" the spoons!
I made this flower box out of a piece of wall trim that had been up in our hayloft for several years. It was dirty! I sanded off the dirt and cast a rustic spell on it and bippity boppity
boo...it's now a pretty gift for my Mama for Mothers Day. I potted three sweet little marigolds in it and added a tulle bow. It will make a nice addition to her flower bed and she LOVES yellow! *I also made one in pink and one in turquoise.
I love for my home to look warm and welcoming. One of the best ways to achieve this is with a wreath or arrangement on the front door. You can learn how to make this one step by step. Including a photo guide for making a beautiful bow!
