Junk Flower Sculpture?

imjustsam(6)September 17, 2012

I have been wanting to make something like this for a while now. I always see neet flowers madeon barnwood, but us city gals don't see barnwood too often. I had to finally gt rid of my old potting bench, it was beyond even a junkers repair ability. I salvaged a shelf to make ths project though.

Love it!!!! Just what are the flowers made of? Looks like some type of wire basket. Love the bright pink color you chose.

The flowers were a couple old gold wire baskets. Looked kind of like what some people used to use at Christmas time. I was thinking of maybe adding some chicken wire to them next spring to plant succulents in.

Beautiful board, love that well weathered look that only time can give! The flowers are lovely & like the curly cues of the green leaves. Great job! Jan

Wonderful. The boards are perfect for the bright flowers. I like the pitchfork at the bottom too.

Really neat project. I like it. Each time I read a comment, I hade to scroll back up and see what I missed the first time I looked. I missed the pitch fork completely. Thank you for sharing.
