Window Frame Floral Wall Art

There is a junkyard of sorts near my house - a place where you can go and buy (very inexpensively) old parts of homes - windows, appliances, exterior features, sinks, tubs, etc. - that are removed during renovation. I picked up the window below to use for another project, but accidentally broke the glass. Rather than throw it out, I thought that it would make a great frame that I could mount on the wall with some hanging vases. So, I removed the glass (by chipping away the glazing on one side), and painted the frame. I think it makes an awesome wall frame, and the orange frame and blue glass vases are a lovely contrast. This is a more craft-oriented post than usual, but it really is simple, and I hope you'll try it. I added some zinnia, but it would look equally lovely with poppy, ranunculus, peony, dahlia, or just about any other bright flower. Don't feel constrained to a single variety either. I have left this up in my living room, and add new flowers to it each week for some lovely floral wall art.

I attached eight (8) eye screws to the underside of the frame. No tools needed tulipina.com / Kiana Underwood

Wired twine and some burlap ribbon allow the vases to be hung from the eye screws tulipina.com / Kiana Underwood

Run the wired twine through one side and twist to secure tulipina.com / Kiana Underwood

Thread through the eye screw, and once the desired length is achieved, tie off the other side tulipina.com / Kiana Underwood
