Easy Re-purposed Outdoor Plant Picks

Plant pick #1:  A $2 Thrift Shop Rosette Iron


I decided since I only had one stick to go with the butterfly instead of the flower.  I spray painted it blue.

I found an old wooden shank button in my stash and removed the shank.

I sanded the edges just a bit, glued on the wood button (that fit perfectly I might add) with E6000, and sprayed the whole butterfly and button with a matte clear sealer by Krylon.

Here is my rosette iron butterfly plant pick in another of my outdoor containers, a mop bucket, planted with bidens and a red trailing verbena.

Plant Pick #2: I forgot to take a before pic of this 50 cent slotted, thrift store serving spoon.  I loved the flower petal pattern.  I first wrapped foil on the handle of the spoon and spray painted the top of the spoon with marigold spray pain.

After the marigold paint was fully dry, I wrapped the foil on the top of the spoon and spray painted the handle with key lime spray paint.

More shank buttons!  These are black plastic and very small.  I broke the shanks off the back with a needle nose pliers.

I glued the buttons on the petal centers, and sanded the edges of this spoon too to give it just a little age.

  1. Those are too cute!
    I like the spoon best...because I'd have a better chance at making one with slotted spoons readily available...the butterfly would be harder to make...but still, super cute!
    You HAVE the cutest CLUTTER!
