Do you all remember this fan blade from the Easter sign? I told you I had another project in store for the leftover piece from it. In this post I’ll be sharing How to Make Wall Art Using Repurposed Materials.
Here’s the leftover piece from the Easter sign project. What does it look like to you? If you said a funky vase, then you and I are thinking alike.
Now that I had a vase, I needed a flower, so I gathered some things from my repurposing stash like tile pieces, hinges, and a biscuit cutter (or at least that’s what I’m calling it because it looks similar to a biscuit cutter thing). If you know the real name of the pastry circle thing let me know. I also crocheted some jute twine for the stem.
Everything got painted. The vase was painted blue and then distressed and chipped to give it this effect. The flower part was spray painted with a red Rustoleum spray paint. The hinges and jute twine were painted with 2 different colors of green acrylic paint, and later the hinges were sanded to give a distressed look.
Now that everything was painted I laid it out on this cabinet door where it was going to be mounted to. The cabinet door was actually one of the doors that I painted for this post.
When I had an idea of how things were going to go on the cabinet door, I started attaching everything.
I hot glued the tile pieces on to make a funky looking flower. To attach the biscuit cutter, I actually hammered a small nail in the cabinet door and hung the cutter on it.
My husband helped me fasten the hinges on the door, by pre-drilling and attaching the screws with a drill. I then painted the screw heads with the 2 different green paints.
The leftover bit of fan blade which was turned into a vase was attached using hot glue.
And of course, I’m going to add some stencils. 😉 I designed this border using my crazy flower.
Now I know funky isn’t for everyone, but I think this is definitely a fun piece of wall art that I will enjoy having on display in my craft room. What do you think? Do you like funky pieces like this?
