Repurposed Pan into Wall Art-Int’l Bloggers Club
It’s time for another edition of Int’l Bloggers Club. We’ve been going strong for over a year now. Today we’re getting together to show you our spring/fall projects from around the world. You can see last year’s spring projects here and last month’s Valentine’s Day projects here.
It feels a little weird to be doing a spring post when just yesterday it was snowing, but tomorrow it might be spring weather in the 60s and 70s, that’s the Midwest for you though. 😉 Anyway I wanted to show you a quick and easy project that I did to celebrate spring.
I got a pan out of my repurposing stash that I bought at a garage sale for a few cents, and decided to make wall art out of it.
I started out by stenciling my bird design on it because to me birds are almost synonymous with spring, and of course I can also use this piece year round. After I stenciled the bird on it, I drilled 2 holes in the back of the pan, so I could hang it up.
Next I threaded separate strands of jute twine through each hole and tied a hole in the twine at the front, then tied the separate strands together, at the back of the pan, to make a bow.
Here it is hanging up:
I also stenciled some of my flower border designs on the inside rim.
Here’s the pan all decked out for spring.
After I stenciled it, I was debating painting the pan a white color, so the stencil could be seen a bit better, what do you think? Should I paint the pan to make the bird and flowers stand out better? Or should I leave it as is?
Don’t forget to check out the other ladies’ posts featuring their spring and fall projects!
Thanks so much for sharing!
