Galvanized Garden Petals

You’ll Need

  • assorted nuts, washers, faucet handles (available at hardware store)
  • wooden art sticks
  • white glue
  • hot glue

1. Take a trip down the plumbing, electrical and hardware aisles at your local home improvement centre and let your imagination loose looking for round pieces to build your flower.

2. Using white glue, attach nuts to washers in a circle to form “petals”. Glue washers to faucet handles, or other treasures you’ve found, to make the “flowers” for your bouquet. Let glue dry.

3. Cut wooden art sticks to various lengths for the stems. Using hot glue, attach the “stems” to the back of each of your finished flowers.
