Dollar Store Metal Flowers

Happy Memorial Day weekend! This isn’t so much a tutorial as just sharing a little outdoor project I did recently using some dollar store items and an old section of fence. I picked up this fence on the side of the road and thought it would be cute to decorate around my chicken coop.

First, I painted it white using some paint that I had on hand.

I found these little red, white and blue signs at the Dollar tree. I love the metal flowers but was not crazy about the writing part. I decided to buy a bunch of them and take them apart to use just the metal flowers to decorate with.

It was very easy to just pry open the metal chain with some pliers and slip the metal flowers off.

Once the fence dried I laid out the flowers to figure out a pattern I liked.

Then I attached them on using tiny nails and the holes that were already in the flowers (from where they originally hung on the chain).

I put it up alongside of my chicken coop just for some color and decoration. I thought about doing a similar one for by the house entry way. You could use DT metal flowers for decorating wreaths, birdhouses, signs, baskets, or any other kind of garden decor!

I just wanted to share this project because sometimes you can find a gaudy dollar store decoration and turn it into something cute! I love these flowers and actually went back to get more but they were out. Maybe next year! Have a great weekend and stay safe everyone! 🙂
