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.
Here is this plant pick in a kettle of bidens!
