DIY Yard Flowers
I picked these hubcaps up at a yard sale a week ago. I have been keeping a lookout for hubcaps every since I seen the yard flowers made from hubcaps on HomeTalk.
How To Make Hubcap Flowers
First wash your hubcaps with soap and water/degreaser.
Cut out a piece of cardboard the size of the center of the hubcaps. Place in center of your hubcap.
Now spray paint hubcaps the color that you want your flowers to be.
Now use cardboard or paper to cover hubcap, but leave the center part open and spray paint it black or brown.
I cut out some leaf shapes from a piece of left over corrugated metal I had. Punched two holes in the center, and spray painted them green.
Then I connected them to some metal rebar (the stems) that I painted green, using large zip ties.
I zip tied the rebar to the back of the hubcap flowers, then used screws to help hold them steady against the fence. (There top heavy).
I love the orange and blue flowers but not the pink. (Looks better in picture). I used paint I had on hand. The pink was fluorescent, and it did not cover as well. I think I will buy a regular color of pink and redo that flower.
How do you like my hubcap yard flowers? I think that the stems and leaves are to small for the flowers. What do you think?
