I fell in love with this back door planter by Heather Bullard.
The simplicity of the jar in chicken wire with the ribbon and trims
just made me oooh and aaahhh.
I was so inspired I decided to make one of my own.
I did not copy Heather as she is an incredible artist
and could never be reproduced.
I simply took her look for inspiration and made this....
I decided not to use straight chicken wire.
Let's face it....I'm accident prone.
There was no way I was going to involve myself with sharp metal.
I did place my Ball jar inside this grapevine and chicken wire basket
I got at Hob Lob.
(It's by the wreaths.)
I then filled it in with moss and place my flowers in my jar.
The frames were the vintage metal ones that I purchased from GW.
I spray painted them black and then added scrapbook paper
and french wording that I tea stained.
The pocket watch was found for a dollar at a flea market.
(I'm still on the hunt for the one I mentioned here.)
It doesn't work so I thought it would be a great accent piece.
(Sorry for the sideways pic. I don't know what happened with this one.)
I added a bird with feathers and berries
to give a hint of fall and a touch of color.
I made the tassel in true Nester fashion.
This was alot harder than I thought.
In the end, I enjoyed the finished product.
I really love my back door now.
I have plans on changing out the flowers and trim for christmas.
I hope my creation inspires you as Heather Bullard did mine.
P.S. I'm a little torn about the new "fall" look on my page.
Do ya like it?
Is it too busy?
Keep it simple?
Stay the same?
Let me know what ya think.
I value ya'lls opinion.
Pssst!!! I'm participating in Metamorphasis Monday with Between Naps on the Porch
