What can be made from a broken yardstick, a broken stick from my yard, an old paint stirrer, a piece of old vinyl house siding and a discarded donut-hole of wood?? Well, after picking up hundreds of sticks that Mother Nature has scattered all over my yard, the idea of these whimsical super-sized flowers popped into my head!! I use these colorful posies to brighten up a dark corner of my garden, or to have year-round flowers in potted plants both indoors or out! I painted one for a friend with her house number on it, and it announces her location next to her mailbox. They are painted differently on both sides, so you really get 6 different flowers to enjoy!!
I'm sure you can come up with many more ideas for how to use these smile makers!! :o)
This set of 3 flowers stand about 38"-42" high and the flowers are about 8½" wide. The stems are sycamore branches that have had the bark removed, then everything is primed with 2 coats of primer and at least 2 coats of glossy acrylic enamel. The petals are made of cut up paint stirrers and sections of yardstick. The leaves are cut from vinyl siding from a torn down house. Even the screw on the leaf is recycled from an old switch plate cover!!
These flowers will give you hours of enjoyment with the extra bonus that they are recycled (and you don't have to water them!!)
Don't throw it out... just PAINT IT!! I sell these at craft fairs for $35 each, but you can have all 3 for $75.
