Painted Metal Flowers

I've got about 10 different projects going on right now but here's a quick one that's completed.

You know those vintage metal flower or branch wall hangings you see sometimes? 
 That's how these started but I don't have an actual before...forgot. 
 Mine were a lot like these and were also that same gold color.... so I painted them.

Had this wooden base from a lamp and gave it a quick distressed finish
 then just stuck the stems in the hole in the top.

And this is how they turned out

  1. Great googly are so darn creative. I think that I am creative, and then you take something that I kind of look down my nose at (those icky metal flowers) and make something awesome out of them. Now, of course, I will be hoping to see those darn things so I can copy your idea.
    Keep being creative so I may follow behind you, your creative majesty.

  2. I love it! What a clever way to use things you already have, and so cheery!

  3. The flowers look beautiful! What kind of paint did you use? Thanks so much for showing them off :-)


I've moved to to focus on my mosaic art. I'm no longer creating dragonflies or mermaids.
