My first original garden junk project- recycled folding screen

lizzardlyOctober 16, 2010

I grabbed this screen out of the trash a few months ago and finally found a use for it. The suns are dollar store finds that I punched holes in and used florist wire to hold in place. They are wired to both sides and the top of the frame so they won't spin. Sorry for the lousy picture, but that's the only kind I take.

Thanks 'yall. I was happy to have an original project for once!

Kathi- I got the suns at Dollar Tree. They were hiding out near the candles. They were on the top shelf and kind of behind everything else. I got one of each design they had.

Great save, lizzardly! It looks wonderful with your cute little $1 suns to dress it up. Easy but pretty - just the kind of projects I love!

Way cute! Funny how a few touches totally change the feel of something. I predict this is just the first of many more successful projects.

What a neat and original idea. It looks good against the hedges. Don't you just love curb shopping and the DT.
