Looking for a fun DIY craft project for your yard? Here are some neat hubcap flowers that my sister-in-law just finished. Retirement is turning her into a craftsy person........hmmmm.....maybe I can get her to start quilting next winter!
DIY Hubcap Flowers
This is her little flower garden in the back yard up against the metal shed that holds the lawn mover. You don't even have to water them!
Back to the hubcaps! She saw something on Pinterest about them and proceeded to see if she could find some hubcaps.
Several came from my dad's shop and the rest were either found in ditches or some friends found them for her. She actually wrote on the back of each one where it was found.
She scrubbed off each hubcap and then painted them several times using a spray paint like this Rust-Oleum Painter's Touch Multi-Purpose Spray Paint.
Notice the "rays" on this sun hubcap.....do you know what they are?
Before painting it she added a bunch of white plastic ties. Don't they look neat all painted! What a great idea.
Glass Accent Gems
Sponge painting is another great way to decorate the hub caps. Each one looks so different. Wouldn't it be fun to find a bunch of different hub caps and decorate them!
She used wood that was found along the river for the stems. The leaves are plastic pieces but we were both talking about finding some pieces of drift wood and painting bigger leaves on them. That would look neat!
