I went chunky-funky with some scrap 2" thick boards. These are the one piece bases that I cut and routed. I'm working on the centers but the paint on them was still wet. I'm not sure if I'll add any metal to these, as they look kind of fun without it - I may have to do an Insta-Poll and see what you all think of metal vs non-metal. Anyway, these flowers will be ready to hang indoors or out, with an exterior wire and screws. #bohemianstyle #woodworking #imadethat #makersgonnamake…

I made these blue rustic flowers from salvaged wood and metal. The base is about 2" thick and was painted in turquoise and chocolate brown, then distressed and sealed. The frilly pieces were hand cut from salvaged soup and beverage cans, then primed and painted with exterior color. These are not yet fully assembled, but they'll be ready to hang with an exterior wire. They're good for indoor or outdoor display. When complete, they'll be available in my #etsyshop #flowerart #handmade #etsyshop…

This is a photo of me cutting metal for my flowers, circa 2012. It's a testament to how my definition of success has changed over the years since I began my business that summer. It's a photo of me doing what I truly love - making my art. See my #blogpost about how my early efforts at "success" underwent many changes over the years.

These are my newest flowers - slightly smaller than what I usually make. I posted these in their raw state last week but here they are painted, though not yet assembled. I painted them with a border, then distressed both the flower base and center. I added just a bit of salvaged metal - I cut down some beverage cans for the frilly look around the center. They will be protected with two coats of exterior sealant and will be ready to hang indoors or out. I see a whole collection of these in a…

I'm heading in a whimsical direction with these smaller flowers. I'm also exploring different wood cutting techniques in addition to cutting salvaged metal. This set of flowers is waiting patiently for paint. #etsyartist #createyourhappy #flowerart

This is a close-up of a #metalflower I hand painted for a customer. I used some deep #aubergine spray paint, along with some acrylics for the detailing. I seal each flower with two hefty coats of exterior sealant. I like these smaller pieces because they are so versatile. Hang them as a #doorwreath, or as a #porchdecoration or #patiodecoration. The possibilities are endless! Want this flower in custom colors? Message me and we can chat! #bhghome #rusticdecor #bhgflowers #rusticdecoration…
