I have a huge tub of faux flowers and foliage and a piece of driftwood we found on our Florida vacation last year. I was inspired by an image that came up on Facebook.
So….I made this last night and this morning. I just have it hanging on the back of a bench with the jute rope, but it could be hung many different ways. I think it would look great hung on the wall on a patio or deck.
Meet Agatha, my yard angel. After making some other yard decor yesterday and seeing some cute angels in a garden group I’m in, I knew I had to have one. So I made her this morning…. all by myself …. with materials I had here and my husband’s power tools. Ok … his battery drill with a screwdriver bit. But “power tools” sounds better.
Head and neck: a thrifted cutting board Halo: a grapevine wreath from Dollar Tree Hair: bed springs he cut off an old mattress he found on trash pick up day awhile ago. It kept him busy for two days cutting them off. 👍🏻 Necklace: I made gold bells out of big pill bottles for a wreath I made at Christmas. Agatha wanted them for a necklace. Body: a wonderfully rustic shutter a friend gifted me. Arms: braces from an old chair Wings: leftover pieces from my son’s new deck. They were already triangles. Bag of flowers: tote bag from our trip to Amsterdam several years ago. Flowers from Dollar Tree. I will be changing that out to a watering can soon but I wanted a photo before the rain and the watering can is In my booth for sale right now. Lol
I gave her wings and arms a touch of paint to blend them in.
I screwed the pieces on (I even found that metal stuff with holes in it to attach the wings) and placed her on the hill by the pond.
