So I guess I'm buying these this week. Whoops. Thought they were interesting but other than the obvious flowers has anyone done anything really cool with old metal fan blades?
Very interesting because each set is different.
I brought home one set from CT this summer. I was planning on making a flower, but I , too, am open to other ideas !
Yes, it doesn't appear there any two alike. He must have collected them. I'm buying them all for $30 but wondering why. lol
Paint them like flowers mount them on posts int the garden.
Oh my what a find! I decopaged flower pictures on a fan with outdoor modpodge. You could also make a sculpture out of several of them grouped together. Good luck and let us know what your do with them! Carol
I'm toying with the idea in my head of some sort of big wind chime and hang it from my back porch ceiling. But I'd have to figure out what would make it chime, how to put it all together and so on. But that's sort of where my mind is at now. I haven't even picked them up yet. lol
I put one on a post just to have it turn in the wind!
I set another old 'stand' fan--with the cover removed-
out too. I painted each blade a solid color! Those blades
were plastic and a hard wind turned it over and broke
some corners off. It still turns, and is now weighted down.
just not as 'pretty'!
I use the wire covers as 'baskets' to plant in.....
I would have bought them too!!!
Carol, yours looks great!
Oh yes whirly gigs! Painted fantastic bright whimsical colors. I love the rusty bases in the first picture too.
