Have you all seen those galvanized metal wreaths that are popular right now? I saw a photo of one (made out of a metal tire) floating around a while back, either on Facebook or Pinterest. I thought it was such a neat idea, that it just stuck with me.
Well, fast forward a few months, and I have created my very own! Not only that, but it was incredibly cheap and only took me about 5-minutes total.
Now, that’s my kind of craft.
If you know me at all, you know that I love a good deal. I often shop after the holidays in order to get the discount. So, you had better believe that when Hobby Lobby was clearing out (80-90% off) their “Spring Shop” decor, I went to check it out.
I was able to score some super cute items for just a couple of bucks each. (insert happy dance) One of the things that I snagged was this cute, little metal hanging planter. I believe it cost me $3. 🙂
Everything else, I already had on hand. I told you it was cheap!
Hobby Lobby regularly has sales on their floral stems, so I often will pick some up when I catch them on sale. I also snagged a whole bunch of stems from At Home a few weeks ago when they had all of their summer floral decor at 90% off.
So, even if you don’t have all the supplies on hand, you can easily catch this stuff on sale, and not have to pay too much.
- Galvanized metal planter
- Small floral foam brick
- 3-4 greenery/floral stems
- Wire cutters
All you need to do is find a few stems that you like and a small floral foam brick that will fit down inside the planter.
Before you actually do anything, I recommend simply holding the stems inside the planter to find an approximate arrangement that you like. (You may have to snip some of the stems to make them shorter.)
Then, simply place the foam down into the planter and shove the ends of the picks down into it.
I didn’t secure the foam in any way. The weight of the stems keeps it down inside the planter.
This will make it super easy to change out the look with the seasons. Cheap, easy, and versatile! Doesn’t get much better than that!
