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
Wired twine and some burlap ribbon allow the vases to be hung from the eye screws
To hang the vase, first tie the ribbon around the neck
Run the wired twine through one side and twist to secure
Thread through the eye screw, and once the desired length is achieved, tie off the other side
