Hot Stuff: Hanging Garden Ornaments

Published on NewsOK Published: February 7, 2013

Wagon wheel mobile: I'm not sure who has a spare wagon wheel hanging around, but if you don't this project is a great reason to hit your local flea market. What could be more fun than hunting for wagon wheels at the flea market? You can make a super rustic and fun mobile out of a wagon wheel and some old chair legs. I know, it sounds funny, but it is actually a super cool hanging garden ornament. Make haste and build this mobile. You'll love the sound of the chair legs clacking together as the wind blows through it; it's just like one of those wooden wind chimes.

Garden chandelier made of junk: The link I posted is just a guideline. You could use all of your creative faculties to fashion a garden chandelier made from junk. Got something sparkly sitting in the garage? You'll find a way to incorporate it into a garden chandelier. Anything you've got can be affixed with wire, from shiny marbles to crystals and beads.

Hanging Mason jar lanterns: Check out this tutorial on how to make them, also. There are so many awesome uses for Mason jars. Hanging lanterns are a favorite use. With a bit or wire and a votive candle, hanging Mason jar lanterns are a project that can be enjoyed even on cold winter days. Can you imagine them shining in the snow?
